Q: Is it permissible for me to take the contraceptive pill for a short term period (6 months) only, for the use of fixing my acne issues. My intention is just to take it to fix my medical problem (acne). I have tried every other form of medication to help with my acne and nothing seems to work. This is my last resort.
A: Yes it is permissible provided it does not terminate the foetus after development and your husband approves of it.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
