Is it necessary to do ghusl after having an ultrasound tube inserted into the vagina?
I'm undergoing an infertility treatment for couple of months. For this I have to go to doctor's office regularly for ultrasound and cycle monitoring. For ultrasound, nurse inserted a tube into vagina to get a closer look. Sometime the medicine also inserted into vagina. My question is that does the Ghusul (bath) is compulsory after the insertion of ultrasound tube or a medicine into the vagina?.
Praise be to Allaah
The Standing Committee was asked: if a woman
or doctor inserts a medical instrument or medicine into the vagina, does she have to do ghusl? Does that invalidate fasting?
If what is mentioned happens, that does not require ghusl from janaabah, and it does not invalidate fasting.
