A girl had her periods and for about a year or a year and a half, her habit was 8 to 9 days. Then, this October she bled for 10 days and then 30 days tuhur. Then she bled for 15 days and had 4 days tuhur, and then again strong bleeding for 5 days (up till today). What is her masala?

Firstly, there is a terminology in Islamic Fiqh known as Istihadah. Istihadah is the duration of bleeding below/beyond the habitual monthly bleeding cycle a woman has. The general monthly duration of a woman bleeding is 3-10 days, any bleeding less than 3 days or more than 10 days will be considered as Istihadah. During the period of Istihadah, a woman can perform all acts of worship like she would during her time of purity (Tuhr) except that she would require to do wudu for every individual salah.
Based on the description above, a portion of the question indicates the normal cycle of Haidh (monthly bleeding duration). In October it was 10 days whereas 8-9 days was the norm of her bleeding, the extra 1-2 days will be counted as her days of Haidh as it encompasses 3-10 days.
The remaining portion of the question indicates Istihadah. When she was experiencing bleeding for 15 days, then the additional 5 days will be counted as Istihadah where she was obliged to pray her salah. Therefore, any salah which may have been missed within the 5 days of Istihadah will need to be prayed (Qadha).
