HSG test while fasting

Fatwaa ID: 2224

Question:
Assalamualykum. Respected mufti saheb .Does HSG test invalidate the fast.

Answer:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Hysterosalpingography, or HSG, is an X-ray test to outline the internal shape of the uterus and show whether the fallopian tubes are blocked. A thin tube is threaded through the vagina and cervix thereby injecting contrast material into the uterus. If the tube is open, the dye gradually fills it. The dye spills into the pelvic cavity, where the body resorbs it.

Contemporary medical research has shown that the vagina is not an orifice of consequence nor do objects or fluids reach a cavity of consequence through it. Accordingly, an HSG test will not invalidate the fast.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
