All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

If the totality of the days in which you see these drops of blood in addition to the days of your monthly menses along with the days of purity between them exceeds 15 days – as it appears from the question – then you have bleeding outside your monthly menses.

In such a case where you have bleeding outside your monthly menses, you should refrain from the prayer during the days which you know you are in menses, and consider them as menses as long as you know when your monthly menses occur. Then, when your menses stops, you should perform Ghusl (ritual bath) and perform the prayer and you should not take into consideration those spots; rather, you should clean the place of impurity and only perform ablution for the prayer.

On the other hand, if the totality of those days and the period of purity intervening them are less than 15 days, and between the stopping of the menses and seeing those drops there are not less than a period of 13 days which is the minimum period of purity between two menses according to the Hanbali School – then the totality of the bleeding which you see during this period is considered as menses.

In which case, when you see the bleeding, you should refrain from performing the prayer and the like, and when this bleeding stops, you should perform Ghusl (if you need to perform the prayer), and you should do the same thing until your menses stops, as long as the totality of bleeding and the period of purity intervening it lasts for at least one day and one night and does not exceed 15 days as we already mentioned. For more benefit, please refer to Fatwa 153821.

Allaah Knows best.
