Thank you for your email.

There is no problem in reciting quran whilst being in your periods, the only verses that a woman in her periods cannot recite are the ones which sajda become wajib upon reciting them. There are 4 verses which have wajib sajda: Sura alaq(lastverse), sura najm (lastverse), sura sajda (verse 15) and sura ha mim (verse 38).

Kind regards,
