In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
According to the Hanafi madhab, a woman in haidh is not permitted to recite the Qur’ān whether from memory or by using the Qur’ān. This prohibition is clearly stated in a hadith. Rasūlullah (sallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) has stated:
لاَ تَقْرَأِ الحَائِضُ، وَلاَ الجُنُبُ شَيْئًا مِنَ القُرْآنِ
Translation: A woman who is her haidh (menstruation) and a person who is in the state of janābat (major impurity) should not recite anything from Qur’ān.
However, it is permissible for a woman in menstruation to engage in dhikr and du‘ā’. As such, she may recite those verses of the Qur’ān which are in the context of a du‘ā’, such as Sūrah Fātihah, Āyat al-Kursī, etc. However, the intention should be of du‘ā’ and not to recite the Qur’ān.
And Allah Ta‘āla Knows Best
