One friend of mine told me that his wife always sees a special dream before her veset. Always the same one.

Could such think be counted as veset kavua?

I understand that technically a dream doesn't apply to any type of veset that are mentioned in Sh.O. (correct me if I wrong). I am searching for an explicit mentioning of such thing in poskim.

Any sources or insightful thoughts are appreciated.

Well, I just found out what a veset is here: yoatzot.org/article.php?id=43 , and it explains related terms, so I could figure out what this question was actually asking...Hebrew vocabulary +2.. – Gary Mar 22 '14 at 3:42
I guess the question is whether having a certain dream is an other (unwritten) example of "setting a veset due to occurrences in her body" in Shulchan Aruch Siman 189:19-26). – Meir Zirkind Mar 23 '14 at 5:38
@MeirZirkind You are correct, that is the question. Wasn't that clear? If so I'll try to add explanations. – jutky Mar 23 '14 at 8:29
