Question


Can we do perineum physiotherapy while fasting, as we have to use an intravaginal device for that purpose as well as an ultrasound transmission gel?

Will the insertion of that device and the gel break the fast?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful 


 


Answer


 


It is permissible as long as the gel does not reach one’s intestines.[1]
