A male doctor treating female patients

Q 8: Is it permissible for a man to take his wife to a male Muslim or Kafir (non-Muslim) physician to treat her and give her a check-up on her vulva? It should be noted that some people take their daughters to physicians to perform check-ups on them and give them a certificate of virginity, especially when the wedding ceremony approaches.

A: If it is possible for a Muslim female physician to perform the check-up on the woman, then it will not be permissible to have her checked and treated by a male physician even if he is a Muslim. If this is not possible, and she is in need of treatment, it will be permissible for a Muslim male physician to give her a check-up in the presence of her husband or a Mahram (an unmarriageable relative) for fear of Fitnah (temptation) or evil consequences. (Part No. 24; Page No. 415) If it is not possible to find a Muslim physician, it will be permissible to have her checked by a non-Muslim physician, so long as the above condition is met.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
