A woman that made a Hefsek Tahara and counted for 6 days, but then didn’t count the 7th and didn't go to the Mikvah since she was not going to have sexual relations. Another 10 days passed.

Can she count the 7th day and go to the Mikvah?

    she needs 7 consecutive days of cleanness. – kouty Jul 18 at 7:38

NOTE: this definitely seems like a CYLOR case.

In the interest of learning, I saw in R' Zvi Sobolofsky shlit"a's sefer "The Laws and Concepts of Niddah", Chapter 26 "Counting the Shivah Nekiyim"- a responsum of the Me'il Tzedakah(1678-1712):

Practically speaking: this is just academic; one should DEFINITELY CYLOR

    I don't see any evidence in the question that this applies. Where did she have hesech hadas? (There's a better reason she has to restart of course, but you didn't mention it.) – Double AA Jul 18 at 12:32
  • @DoubleAA which better reason are you referring to? – alicht Jul 18 at 12:58

    When do you expect her to be doing bedikot? – Double AA Jul 25 at 11:45
