In this fatwa:
As for your query, it seems that what you are experiencing is istihadah not menses. So, you can observe your normal period during which you should stop praying and sexual intercourse. After that, you can do all this.
In responding to your question, Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and an Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states:
Istihadah not Menses
You only need to stay away from prayers and conjugal relations (i.e. intercourse) during your monthly period or menses. To determine this, you should go by your habit prior to this chronic bleeding started.
In other words, if you had the habit of menstruating for six or seven days every month, that would be deemed as your period. You ought to perform ritual bathing (ghusl) and start praying afterwards. You can also have intercourse afterwards.
If, however, the above was not the case with you, and you always had this persistent bleeding from early on then, you need to go by the maximum period of menses, which is fifteen days. Menses cannot exceed more than fifteen days, as ruled by eminent scholars.
Allah Almighty knows best.
