While dealing with istihatha blood (after menses, or nafas), scholars unanimously agreed that a woman can go back to her usual activity. However, there is disagreement about whether she can resume intimacy. Most scholars have said that it’s preferable to stay away from intimacy during that time. Others say that no, that there is no evidence either way, so it depends on the preference of the couple.
