Sawm (Fasting)

Fasting in Islam, (known as Sawm (صَوْم) or Siyām (صِيَام), also commonly known as Rūzeh or Rōzah (Persian: روزه‎)), is the practice of abstaining, usually from food, drink, smoking, and sexual activity. During the Islamic holy month of Ramadan Sawm is observed between dawn and sunset when the evening adhan is sounded.

You do not need to pay a kaffarah. 

All you must do is redo that day as qadha`. 

And Allah knows best.

It does not break the fast no matter how bad it is. Fast breaks only in commuting any of the nine Mufattiraat ( fasting invalidating acts)e.g. Eating, drinking, smoking, lying on Allah or on The Infallible etc.

Many sinful acts do not invalidate fast despite the fact that they are sinful.

Wassalam.

It is obligatory to fast the whole days of the month of Ramadan if you are not ill nor traveling. You must obey Allah and never disobey Him to please any one else even your parents. You can not commit a sinful act to please any one.

If the blood stopped before Fajr, you must fast that day, but if the blood stopped after Fajr, then no fast in that day and you need to perform a Qadha fast for every day missed because of menstruation or illness or traveling.

In case the blood stopped but no time for Ghusl, Tayammum must be preformed in stead of Ghusl.

Wassalam.

If one had enough time, and intentionally did not perform ghusl before Fajr time, then their fasting for that day will be invalid, and they must redo that day as qadha` and pay kaffarah

If they did not have enough time, or it was not intentional for them to stay in janabah, then their fasting is valid.

And Allah knows best.

Yes, fast is invalid immediately on the start of menstruation even if it starts few minutes before Maghrib. She will get her reward for the time which she fasted in that day, and she can eat or drink immediately, hut she must keep Qadha fast after the month of Ramadan.

If you missed fasting few days in the month of Ramadan, due to your menstrual period or due to traveling, you just need to keep Qadha fast for every missed day and there is no Kaffara of feeding sixty poor believers. Kaffara is obligatory on those who deliberately leave fasting not because of illness or menstrual period, or traveling.

Wassalam.

As important as your husband's career may be, it cannot be more important than obeying Almighty God or having children. I am sure he is somehow able to adjust his working schedule during the holy month to be able to see you, and try to work around your ovulation time. He can get some time off work during the night, for whatever reason, even if it's unpaid leave. 

However, you must both know that it will be haram and sinful for him or you to break your fast for this purpose, and the worst case scenario is for him is to either take a night off, or wait until after the ending of the holy month. 

You are certainly a noble believer, and hence you ask this question, but if you break your fast for such an invalid reason, this guilt will always be with you, so it is always best to abide by the shar'i requirements and always have hope in Allah ta'ala who will accommodate for all our needs, all in due time.

With prayers for your success.
