Q: I am a woman with a very heavy menses, that comes with very painful cramps. Because it is very heavy, the blood tends to leak (onto my clothes, bed sheets, etc.). Is it permissible for me to sleep/lay down on my stomach as I have found that this position is the least likely to lead to a leak? I have also found it to help with the pain from the cramps?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
