Doubting if one gargled during ghusal

Q: Girl has been baaligh for about 5 years. She remembers being particular about doing ghusls from her menstruation but now shes getting doubts that sometimes she might have got yellow discharge in her menstruation days in the first few years and she didnt do ghusl again because she used to get yellow discharge in her paaki days (as white discharge when drying up can turn yellow) but now shes getting doubts and she used to have a bath eveyday (like washing her whole body) but cant remember if every time if she washed her nose and gargled so now how much qadha namaz should she pray coz her ghusl might be done at the wrong time.

A: She should estimate the number of days that had passed in this state and read the namaaz for those days that she is sure that she did not gargle and put water into her nose. If she is not sure about gargling etc. then until she does not have total certainty she does not have to repeat those namaaz.

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