Halacha - nail extensions
Submitted by Simi  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Though you are right for attempting to avoid the issue when possible, you may go to the Mikva with them on. Since they are relatively permanent in nature and you want them to remain as long as they are needed, the nails are not a Chatzitza.

Halacha - nidda
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

No, there is no difference in her conduct with other relatives between when she is a Nidda and when she is not.

I assume you meant "a father or a brother", as an uncle is always forbidden to touch.

Question:
Answer: No. While ideally you should make 2 bedikos each and every day of the 7 neki'im, if you missed a single time you do not need to start over.

Halacha - niddah
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

I'm afraid not. It is certainly forbidden miD'Rabannan and possibly Biblically.

However, it is certainly praiseworthy that you want to help. Giving a gift is permitted as are many other demonstrations of appreciation.

Also, if her depression is so severe, she may need professional counseling.

Halacha - THM Question
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

Once you have found blood one time it is more important to make the 3 checks, however if you find blood 3 times in a row it is a very serious problem in Halacha and you may need to get divorced on the assumption that you will always see.

SO MAKE SURE TO CONTACT A RAV WITH ALL THE RELEVANT DETAILS ASAP.

Halacha - Nida
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Generally speaking 7 clean days is sufficient except when there is a miscarriage of a female fetus more than 40 days past conception when a minimum of 14 days is required before going to the mikva and the 7 clean days can not start until the 8th day following termination of the pregnancy. 8 full weeks is 56 days, however the doctors count from the beginning of the last period which is at least 12 days earlier. So if not more than 40 days passed between the last time you went to the mikva and the termination of the ectopic pregnancy you certainly may start counting the 7 clean days as soon as possible. If more than 40 days passed there are other factors that must be taken into consideration such as the stage of development the fetus had reached, however more than 14 days is certainly not needed. Furthermore, if the ectopic pregnancy was removed through the abdominal wall there is certainly no need to wait more than 7 clean days, because Halacha does not consider a cesarean to be a birth. However if the pregnancy was terminated by methotrexate and the fetus was expelled in the normal manner, what I wrote previously applies.

Halacha - Mikvaot
Submitted by Adi Salama  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Not necessarily. For example, a lake filled primarily with rainwater with an outlet is flowing non-spring water and is pasul because of zochalim. The Halachos of mikvaos are very complicated and it is advisable to only use a mikva under reliable supervision.

Halacha - laws pertaining to a niddah
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

First of all a woman is a nidda at any age if she has a discharge of blood from her uterus. It is actually not uncommon for a newborn girl to have such a discharge, and she is tamei until she goes to the mikva some 20 years later.

However today that we do not have a Beis HaMikdash and Kohanim do not eat teruma there is little practical impact in this impurity aside for the prohibition on marital relations. A Kohen today need only concern himself with impurity from contact with a dead body, and a non-Kohen need not even worry about that.

So the short answer to your question is that there may be spiritual impurity on the chair, but a man may sit on it.

Halacha - niddah
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: You certainly should continue to go to the mikva; when you get your period you may not share a bed nor touch in general regardless of his medical issues. The one relevant leniency that applies is that you may attend his needs if no one else is available, but even then you should avoid direct physical contact.

Halacha - Tevila
Submitted by Shmaya [Steve]  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

The Rema mentions a minhag not to go to the mikva Friday night (and Poskim add also motzai Shabbos) if she is not going to the mikva on the earliest possible date. Often women after childbirth postpone going to the mikva until they are fully healed, even if they stopped bleeding earlier. In any event, even if the woman is going to the mikva late, the Rema does not endorse this minhag and says one should go anyways, unless the city or the individual has a specific well known minhag to be machmir. The Poskim write that if one must inquire whether or not this is the minhag, it is not considered "well-known" and one should not be machmir.

So there is some basis to what you heard, but it is not the accepted practice.

Halacha - 30/31
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

First of all b'Shaah Tova, may everything progress smoothly to a healthy baby.

The Gemara writes that a woman is only considered to have ceased seeing her period after 3 months of pregnancy, and only then may she desist from observing her regular vestos. HaRav Moshe Feinstein zatzal observes in Igros Moshe that today nearly all women stop seeing their monthly period immediately upon conception, and based on this he writes that the Halacha has changed and a woman may ignore her cycle as soon as a reliable test has confirmed pregnancy. While this seems to be a very logical conclusion, the overwhelming majority of Poskim do not concur with Reb Moshe's leniency and if fact in a later teshuva Reb Moshe himself seems to retract this kula.

L'Halacha one should follow the stringent, majority opinion on the 30th day during the actual time period of the previous period, whether day or night. However, the other half of the day and the 31st day are only chumros in any event, and one may be lenient when there is a confirmed pregnancy.
