Chapter 9, Mishna 7
Zav and zava – different kind of impurity, gonorrhea like discharge – emissions but not sexual emissions. If he emits ziva liquid twice, any further discharge is also considered ziva. But we check the ask the first two times, is the man’s discharge due to seven circumstances beyond his control, like arousal, illness, weakness, jumping, etc. Is semen of zav like ziva or not? Dispute.
If someone converted after the emission of semen and then has a possible ziva discharge after conversion, the seminal emission is not counted as a possible factor. But the conversion itself can be considered a traumatic event that might have triggered ziva.
