Title

Using a menstrual cup.

Question

Assalamualaikum 

I would like to know whether it is permissable for a woman to use a menstrual cup during her haidh?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is Makrooh (reprehensible) for a woman to use a menstrual cup.[i]                             You may consider using a sanitary pad instead.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
