Like often happens in Torah learning, this answer came to me while learning RaSh"I with Sifte'i Ḥakhamim just a few days after reading and thinking about this question.

comment Is it true chosson and kallah must separate after the first night together?
@DoubleAA I'm open to suggestions. I'm trying to find an accurate way to transliterate the ẓere'i, which won't include the traditional transliteration of "ay". As for the apostrophe in "Be'ilat", that's to underscore the gutteral "'ayin".

@Dude - True; but, HaRav Eliyahu states in Halakhah 28 (same section) that this applies even to a woman who checked herself and did not find blood (for fear that she did bleed even a drop and that that drop was lost in motion). See inside.

Targum Yonathan on Bereshit 27:5 (link) states Rivqah received רוח הקודש. Or HaḤayim on the same pasuq plainly writes that Rivqah was a prophetess.

I realize that Sifte'i Ḥakhamim does not address why she did not go directly to Yiẓḥaq.
