A woman is currently clear and feels the sign of an upcoming period. Asr time comes in at 4pm and she is making wudu at 4:05pm. During wudu she feels wetness and notices the discharge. Does she need to make up the prayer?

What is the ruling in the case of young females who are starting their cycles? In the beginning, it may take a few months or years to establish a regular cycle.
At this stage, any discharge would be considered her hayth blood.
The scenario that can occur with menstruating women: What is the ruling for a woman who typically has a cycle of 7 to 10 days, but due to external factors, her cycle changes? For example, it stops after 2 days and then comes back 2 days later?
Since her regular cycle is up to 10 days, she cannot resume regular activities until she completes her regular block of time.
The scenario that can occur with menstruating women: What if she has a regular monthly period but one month she has only spotting but it’s at the regular time of her typical cycle and with the same physical symptoms? The only difference is the type of discharge.
This is considered her hayth blood.

Then that new description becomes her hayth.
The scenario that can occur with menstruating women: What if a woman normally has a typical menses (heavy discharge, etc), but due to circumstances, such as diet or travel, her cycle changed and became just spotting and without her regular physical symptoms? Is this still hayth?

The scenario that can occur with menstruating women: What if the woman doesn’t have a regular menses (heavy discharge of blood, smell, cramps), but she has spotting each month or very light blood?
Since this is the regular description of her menses, then that is considered her hayth blood.
The scenario that can occur with menstruating women: What does she do if she is still discharging istihatha after a maximum of 15 days?
She needs to change her pads and refresh her wudu for each prayer. If she feels that she was discharging the istihatha during the prayer, her prayer is still valid.
