Should rabbis have a new look at niddah today since doctors have come up with new ideas about it unknown to previous doctors.

This is a very vague question. Provide specific examples. "new ideas" can mean almost anything. manassehkatz‭ 12 days ago

What kind of answer are you seeking? Is "No" sufficient? How can anyone answer this in a meaningful way. robev‭ 11 days ago

What new ideas do you mean? Niddah is the issuing of blood during menstruation. That has not changed. sabbahillel‭ 11 days ago

@interested Not necessarily. The halacha is that a woman who issues blood because of the menstrual cycle is tamei. The details of what happens inside the body do not matter. In any case, laws of the torah cannot be changed. sabbahillel‭ 10 days ago

@sabbahillel They certainly do. Not everytime is the woman tomai because some blood is not considered dam nidda or from the menstrual cycle even coming from the womb. That depends on doctors not on laws of the torah. You had better go to your rabbi and find out. In plain English there are heterim which depend on doctors. interested‭ 10 days ago

Like any library, this site offers tons of great information, but does not offer personalized, professional advice, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your rabbi.
