Niddah Without Bleeding?


Hi, many people regardless of gender or sex may experience a hormonal period without the bleeding. I’m an intersex trans man, which means I was upbringed as female, my sex is a mix of male and female characteristics and I identify as a man, am I in a state of niddah during a period without bleeding? Does the same go for non-intersex cis women and trans men on testosterone who sometimes experience it, what about cis men or trans women on estrogen?



  1. Niddah is defined by a flow of blood. That means that any other bodily symptoms – regardless of their acute similarity to a period – are not regarded as Niddah according to Jewish Law unless they are accompanied by a flow of blood.
