Transvaginal ultrasound and wet fingers

Fatwaa ID: 918

Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
Someone asked

1.) Will a transvaginal ultrasound break the fast
Cuz they use gel

2.) If a fasting woman washes her self for instinja and her wet fingers go inside
Will that break the fast

3.) Adding to #2 will applying ointment there break fast

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

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, your fast will remain valid in all three of the above scenarios.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
