Assalamu alaykum, I ask for a sister. She had her uterus surgically removed because she had tumor. Due to this, she does not get her menstruation anymore. Should she pray without any 'menstrual pause' like normal men do now, or can she follow her previous menstruating cycle. Jazak Allahu khayran

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

After the surgery if she bleeds then she can pray as this will be considered Istihadha (Bleeding due to other cause). However, during your normal period days, the blood will be considered as Haidh so avoid Salah on those days.

Also, in the case where she has stop bleeding due to the surgery she will continue to pray.
