I was wondering, when does one know when Haidh has ended and when to check.

My normal period of time is about 9/10 days or so or sometimes more, but after about day 8 Imostly only experience discharge being yellow or white but not always red, and I know that this is still regarged as Haidh if within 10 days and it is not clear, but when does one know when to check? Do I check an hour before every Salaah or whenevr I have the need to go to the toilet etc? Because say if one goes to the toilet at Asr and sees there is some discharge and thus Haidh still continues, Maghrib at times is very near to Asr, thus do they check before maghrib as well, and if one does and sees no Haidh how does one know that this is because it has stopped or because it is due to the short period of time after you did istinjiaa and thus it has been washed away but may appear after some hours?

Jazkallah Khair!

Waalaikumussalam warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Bismillahir rahmaanir rahim.

It is best to check during the awwal waqt (beginning time) of every prayer to make sure of being pure or not and so then there would be enough time to perform ghusl. Cotton or tissue could be used to assist in assuring oneself that the blood has stopped or not.

And Allah knows best.
