Using Fertility Pills

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question: Can we use fertility pills in order to get pregnant? It has been two years since I’ve been married. Someone suggested we try that, but sometimes I feel that maybe Allah Most High doesn’t want me to have a baby right now. So should I wait and keep trying? Would it be wrong to use fertility pills?

Answer: In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

If the fertility pills are medically safe—which one should consult reliable medical experts (such as doctors) about—then there is nothing legally wrong with taking such fertility pills.

Whether one should take them is entirely a personal decision that the wife and husband should sit down and make together, though in this the decision is ultimately the wife’s.

And Allah alone gives success.
