I live very far from my wife and family for job. I usually go my home for 7 to 8 days maximum. The problem is whenever I visited my wife, she usually had been with her monthly days. She took regestrone 5mg to avoid her timings. Is it halal or haram?

Also I cannot take my wife with me due to her studies for at least next 6 months.


It is OK. There is nothing wrong with taking medication to regulate human functions. However, two rules must be adhered to are:

  1. Taking such pills must not result in putting her life and health at risk.
  2. It is better, before taking such medication, to seek the advice of a reliable physician.
