Woman using a tampon to prevent discharge

Q: I suffer with a lot of vaginal discharge for which I may be a mazoor in some months. I am going to check if I am mazoor or not. Now, it may be possible that if I use any kind of tampon or tissue, I may be able to prevent the discharge from coming out. But I do not want to insert anything inside as I am afraid that it may cause infection or cause damage to my hymen.

My question is, is it necessary for me to use tissue etc. to prevent my discharge? Because if I use it I will not be mazoor and without using it, I may be a mazoor.

A: If using a tampon will prevent the discharge from coming out and hence enable you to perform your salaah in complete purity without being mazoor, then it will be compulsory upon you to use it.

We suggest that you consult with your doctor to find out which type of tampon will not be harmful to your body.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
