Dear Rabbi,

After marital relations I was cleaning myself in the bathroom and noticed some light pink on the tissue paper. It is possible that is was more than a gris. Never having encountered such a thing before my reaction was to flush the paper away. I’m not sure what to do. Does this make my wife niddah?

Answer:

If blood was found on the אבר  itself, this would make your wife  niddah, even an amount less than a gris, as this would have the same status as a bedika cloth. However we must clarify the issue of the color. Was the lighting in the bathroom a yellow light? Was the toilet paper white or colored? Is there anything else this could be attributed to: color from a towel, bed sheet, garment, makeup or anything else. If it was in fact red she would be a nidah, if she felt pain in that area perhaps she has a wound. If this is clarified by a nurse she would not be a nidah as the blood could be attributed to the wound.
