Halacha - mikva
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Assuming you are a married woman finishing the 7 clean days after being a Nidda, you should make every effort to locate the closest reliable mikva even if it is inconvenient. Under extreme circumstances an ocean or other natural body of water may sometimes be used, but there are many detailed Halachos involved and it is not at all recommended.

Halacha - ona beinunis on the Seasonale
Submitted by Devora  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

According to the information on their website, Seasonale does not reliably prevent a period for the first year of use. Therefore until a pattern of not bleeding for 90 days has been established conclusively, there is no question that all vestos must be observed. However once the efficiency of Seasonale has been determined, there are grounds to be lenient on the day of the month and haflaga (if relevant). Most Poskim are not lenient regarding the ona benonis itself, but one could certainly limit oneself to the 30th day without the 31st or the Ohr Zarua, since they are both chumros.

Halacha - Day of Mikva
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The issue is that she should not eat a food that is likely to become stuck between her teeth and be difficult to remove. While this is certainly a problem with meat, it is not problematic with fish.

Halacha - Passing a Baby
Submitted by chaim  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

One may not pass any object even a baby to his wife when she is a nida, even if the child is old enough to put out his hand and even if he actually does so. However if the child leans by himself from one parent to the other it is permitted because the child went by himself and was not "passed".

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

1) Try to design a way the mikva lady or two could lower her into the mikva, something on the idea of a swing might work. Once she is fully in the mikva, the buoyancy of the water should allow her to stand unassisted.

2) If a woman permanently can not immerse on the mikva it is potentially problematic to remain married, a Rav who knows the details of your situation personally should be consulted.

Halacha - Tevila
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: After making the necessary preparations for tevila on should not put on anything that could potentially cause a chatzitza out of concern that it will not be removed completely. This would include lip gloss as well.

Halacha - Letter to wife
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: One is obligated to love his wife even when she is a nidda and he must communicate his feelings to her is a clear and appropriate manner. However, anything suggestive or overly intimate is forbidden. Therefore, the answer to your question would depend on the use of the word "intimate".

Halacha - Nida
Submitted by Yosef  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: After she stops bleeding and counts seven clean days she is no longer a nidda, until then she is. If the baby was a girl, then she cannot conclude her 7 clean days until 14 days have passed from the birth, but it is nearly impossible before then anyways. Mi'Deoraisa she is tahora even earlier, but for hundreds of years we do not rely on dam tohar.

Halacha - no mikveh
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

While it is technically permitted to immerse in the sea, however there are many potential issues and you must consult with a Rav who is an expert in hilchos mikvaos. Certainly it is preferable that she should travel to the nearest Kosher mikva, as this will resolve all the potential issues.

Furthermore, one may not immerse in a place where there is concern for safety or privacy out of concern that she will do a rushed and hasty job and not immerse fully. If it is unsafe to immerse at night but during daylight it is safe and private, than under extenuating circumstances one may immerse on the eighth day or later, meaning a day following the night she would usually immerse, but not preceding.

Also, a woman may not immerse on her own out of concern that she may not submerge all of her hair under the water, and it is problematic having the husband supervise because he generally may not see his wife undressed before she immerses in the mikva. An alternative is to loosely bind her hair while she immerses by herself, taking great care that the entire ponytail is fully submerged. This, of course, potentially extenuates a situation where she will be nervous being alone on the beach at night.
