Haidh problem

Q: A woman has not got her monthly haidh for more than a year. Two months ago, she had bleeding for 7 days only. She was then clean for 18 days. After 18 days she has been experiencing brown discharge continuously. It will soon be a month that she is in this state. How many days should she regard as haidh and how many days should she regard as istihaadhah? Please explain the ruling if she remains in this state for a few months?

A: This will be regarded as haidh if it continues for three days or more. If it surpasses ten days, then 7 days will be her haidh (in accordance to her last haidh) and the remaining days will be istihaadah.

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