Irregular bleeding

Q: İ have a problem with my period days. Sometimes it lasts for 9 or 11 and sometimes to 14 but just after the 9th day I have brown discharge. This discharge can be in the morning and stops for the rest of the day. Then it can come back late at night or the next day so I wait till all these discharges finish and to be sure that I am clean then I make ghusl.

1. Am I guilty for not making ghusal and praying in the time where the discharge stops before coming back again? Plus I heard a sheikh said it is OK to wait for one day to make sure that you are clean and then do ghusl.

2. Is it really permissible to wait as he said?

A: You will make ghusl after the ninth day when you feel the bleeding has stopped as per your habit. In the event it reoccurs and stops before the tenth then make another ghusl.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
