==Feelings that are Confused with a Hargasha==
# There are certain phenomenon that can cause a sensation similar to a hargasha. Therefore, if a woman was involved in any one of these activities and then saw blood that could have been emitted from her body it could be that she is a Niddah Biblically and that blood is not considered a ketem.<ref>Gemara Niddah 57b, Sidrei Tahara 183:1</ref>
## If a woman urinated: A ketem on a wipe or tissue found after urinating if found immediately it is considered niddah blood but if it is found after a normal amount of time that a woman would wait to wipe for all of the drops to leave her it is only a ketem.<ref>Igrot Moshe YD 4:17:13</ref> A ketem found on tissue paper isn't a ketem since it isn't mekabel tumah.<ref>Igrot Moshe 4:17:14</ref>
## If a had tashmish
## If a woman did a bedika
# If a woman was involved in one of those activities and states that she is certain that she didn't have a hargasha according to some opinions she is credible. However, many poskim are strict and say even in such a case there is a concern that the hargasha was masked and the blood is judged as though it came out with a hargasha.<ref>See Sidrei Tahara 183:1</ref>
# Any blood found on a bedika cloth even if she says that she didn't have a hargasha is treated as though it is possibly Biblical and the leniencies of ketem do no apply.<ref>Taharat Habayit v. 1 p. 17</ref>
