Ruling 399

For excessive istiḥāḍah, in case it is necessary for there not to be a delay between performing ghusl and prayers – as mentioned in Ruling 394 – then, if performing ghusl before the time for prayers has set in causes delay, that ghusl will be of no use for the purposes of performing the prayer and a mustaḥāḍah must perform ghusl again for the prayer. This ruling also applies to a woman who has medium istiḥāḍah.
