i am 49 years old
i have irregular periods but i basically know most rules regarding maximum days of period etc
my discharge is the problem both at the beginning when i am about to start and towards the end of my period the discharge is a more creamy colour
for instance today (my 9th day of periods starting) the discharge is not brown or pink but a creamy colour which then later days will become more whitish/yellow colour(when dry). this creamy colour will dry to a very pale beige/cream colour. can i read my namaz or do i still wait for a white discharge ?

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Bismillahir rahmaanir rahim.

The colours of haidh are red, blackish red, black, yellow, green and brown. Therefore, if the colour of your discharge are from amongst those mentioned, it will be regarded as haidh. If your discharge continues within these colour range for more than 10 days, then it will no longer be haidh but rather istihaadhah. This means that you will have to take a ghusl on the 11th day and perform your prayers as usual.

And Allah knows best.
