I am a nursing mother and I have missed 2 menses. Can I take such medicine that would make my menses start and avoid a child?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by AskOurImam.com

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. If a woman misses her 2 menses, then does a pregnancy check, and it shows unclear, could she take such medicine that would make her menses start, due to having a nursing child and would not cope with another child just yet? Jazakallahu khairun

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

You should consult with your doctor for appropriate medical advice. As a principle, it is not permissible to terminate a pregnancy[1].

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
