Q: Is it permissible for women to use medication that prevents menstruation during Ramadan?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. It is permissible for women to use medication to prevent menstruation during Ramadan in the case that trustworthy, expert doctors and the like ascertain that doing so neither harms woman's health nor has a bad effect on pregnancy organs. However, it is better that women do not use such medications. Allah has given women a Rukhsah (concession) not to observe Sawm (Fast) when they have their menstrual period in Ramadan, and has prescribed for them to make up for the days of Sawm they have missed. He (Exalted be He) has chosen this for them as the way to discharge this religious obligation.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
