Let me add some depth to your question: Why it's recommended to brush your teeth? Put on perfume/cologne, comb your hair or in general be clean — regardless of being Tahir?

When a person commits sins it doesn't mean his dua's can't be answered, dua is still a form of worship and a realization of Tawheed, Shaytaan was disobedient and became a kafir and his dua was still answered, since Allah is ar-Raheem.

As-salamu Alaykum sister, There are many scholarly arguments for this. The most popular view is that she has to catch up her prayers that she didn’t perform. With istihada, she has to do wudu for each salat IF she is still suffering from istihada. If this is a lot for you, trying spreading it out throughout the day? I hope this helps.

A simple answer is: No this du'a is not (exclusively) meant (or more correctly reported) to be said within the prayer at any specific act of this worship.
