Using Pills that Prevent Menstruation?

QUESTION:-
There are pills that will prevent the menses or delay their occurance. Is it allowed to use such pills during the time of pilgrimage only out of fear of one’s menses coming?

RESPONSE:-
It is allowed for a woman to use pills that will prevent her menses during the time of pilgrimage out of fear that her menses may come. But this should be after she has consulted with a specialist who makes certain that her health will be fine. Similarly, she may fo the same during Ramadhan if she desires to fast with the people.
