Assalamu Alaikum. Ramadhan Mubarak. May Allah (SWT) accept our fast and grant us the blessings of this Holy Month. Ameen.
Question: A sister had a baby approximately 2 months ago. Her post partum bleeding has ceased. However, her doctor put her on medication that causes bleeding. She has since stopped taking the medication, however, the bleeding is continuing. Has lasted now for 1 month without stopping. Should she observe fast of Ramadhan or not? Jazakum Allahu Khair.
Ramadhan Mubarak to you as well.
The bleeding that you have described is neither Haiz nor Nifaas. Therefore it will not prevent her from observing the obligatory Fast so she should observe the Fast unless there is another medical complication.
And Allah knows best.
