Shalom Rabbi,

if a man was away for a long time and was only suspected to come home much later, and the women therefore did not count her clean days, how can this be corrected when the man comes home much earlier?

We ran into this situation when I arrived yesterday evening and she did not count clean days but she is pretty sure she is passed the 7 clean days.
Should she start counting and do bedikot now?

Kind regards,



A woman’s 7 clean days are only valid if she checks herself. In your case since your wife did not check herself at all whilst you were away, means much to my regret that she has to start start counting and do bedikot now.


Y:D 196:4
