THE USAGE OF MENSTRUAL CUP

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

QUESTION:

As Salaamu Alaikum,

I would like to know the ruling on the use of a menstrual cup. It is quite an effective personal care item and assists women greatly in many aspects such as: Cost-saves money on sanitary napkins, for approximately 5 years. Embarrassment/ Immodesty- it prevents the likelihood of spillage or order as it is a seal especially useful for working women or women attending gatherings. Time efficiency- it allows for longer periods of time between changing such as in times of long flights, work meetings etc. Mobility- it allows women to freely move about to do daily household activities, motherly duties, sporting, exercising etc. Pain Reduction- it is known to minimize cramping pains etc.

ANSWER:

Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

It will be permissible to use the menstrual cup when you are experiencing your menses.

And Allah Knows best
