Pregnancy and Niddah

One of our readers wants to know about pregnancy and Niddah. During the first three months for the purposes of Niddah, the pregnancy is not yet confirmed. "From the beginning of the fourth month... if the woman had a Hargashah (sensation), checked and found nothing she is pure and we presume that bleeding has stopped" (Pages 14-15 Family Purity - A Guide to Marital Fulfillment by Rabbi Fishel Jacobs)

If a woman is pregnant or thinks that she might be and has questions as to whether a check (Bedikah) is necessary or not, the best thing to do is to ask a competent orthodox rabbi, expert in the laws of Niddah. Don't rely on what you find on the Internet. Every woman is unique and the best habit to get into regarding Niddah questions is to ask a competent rabbi expert in these laws to determine what you need to do according to your situation. 

If you are new to the laws of Family Purity and do not yet have a rabbi to consult, be in touch with Rabbi Eliyahu Shear from Chessed Ve'Emet. Rabbi Shear is both a Chatan teacher and has a Semichah in Niddah.
