Dear Brother / Sister,
The minimum limit for the state of puerperium is the flow of blood even for a moment; the maximum limit is forty days. The blood flow that continues more than forty days is regarded as istihaza blood (blood due to a fracture in a capillary, due to an illness). Therefore, if there is no blood, you should make ghusl and pray. You don't have to wait for forty days.
