If a muztaribah sees blood with the three signs for more than three and less than ten days, then it is menstruation.
But if a muztaribah sees blood for more than ten days, then there are a few possibilites:
1. The blood had the three signs during the entire flow, then she should consider six or seven days as menstruation and the remaining days as istihazah.
2. The blood had the three signs during the entire flow but with a difference in intensity of colour, that is, some days it had black colour and some other days it had dark red colour. In this case the flow with black colour will be considered menstruation and the other will be considered istihazah - if such dark colour was not less than three and not more than ten days.
3. The blood was with the three signs for some days (but not less than three and not more than ten days) and without the signs for some other days, then the flow with the three signs is menstruation and without them is istihazah.
4. If the entire flow was without the three signs or the flow with the three signs was less than three days, then the entire flow will be considered istihazah.
