I use a patch for contraception. Is my Ghusl valid?


Question:

As a form of contraception I am on a “patch”, which is changed every week and the fourth week is a “no patch week”, I would like to know is my Ghusl accepted when I do make it over the patch?

 

Answer:

Since contraception is not a necessity, the patch will have to be removed when making the Fardh Ghusl. However, if contraception is necessary due to pregnancy being genuinely detrimental to the health and there is no suitable alternative for contraception, Ghusl will be valid with the patch on if the lady passes her hand (does Masah) over the patch.

 

And Allah Knows Best
