Are women allowed to have a smear test taken in the month of Ramadhan?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Are women allowed to have a smear test taken in the month of Ramadhan? Does the test invalidate the fast?
Can you please clarify as this is is always a debate.
Jazakallah

Answer
Bismihi Ta’ala

Having a smear test will invalidate the fast, as it is inserting something right into the private part of a woman to test her for curvical cancer.

She would have to make up for the fast through Qadhaa, but no Kaffaarah

And Alla knows best.
