Should a woman take a Ghusl after visiting the gynecologist?

read time: 1 minute

Question:
 

Should a woman make Ghusal after a checkup at the gynecologist?
 

Answer:
 

Ghusl will not be necessary if an internal is done. However, the Wudhu will become invalid by this procedure. Similarly, the fast will become invalid if the woman is fasting. If she had underwent an external checkup, like a scan done above the abdomen etc, neither Ghusl nor Wudhu will be necessary. The fast will also remain valid.
 

And Allah knows best
