Is green discharge considered haidh?

Q: A year or so after I became baaligh, I stopped getting regular periods. I wouldn't know when I would get my period next. From 2015 mid year (this is my discretion) onwards I started having green discharge but didn't know that it should be counted as haiz.

So now all the dates are a blunder as my real period was very few times a year. For the last 5-6 months I am doing ghusl almost regularly. I had pills for green discharge but I am not getting 15 days of tuhr, and for the past 5 months I am taking tablets for my periods too. Because of the tablets I bleed for 4 days every month now. During these days I continue praying because I keep getting green discharge.

Can I consider this as my haiz and the rest as tuhr (though I will be getting green discharge)?

A: Haiz is not decided with colour. If the green is visible within the ten days then it must also be counted as haiz. It may be appropriate to show your original habit and your present habit whether it is green or any other colour.

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