Menstruation-prevention pills during Ramadan

Q 5: Is it permissible for a woman to take pills to prevent her menstruation during Ramadan?

A: It is permissible for a woman to take pills to stop menstruation during Ramadan if experienced trustworthy doctors and similar specialists decide that taking these pills will have no harmful effects or adversely affect her reproductive system. However, it is better not to take them, for Allah (Exalted be He) has granted her the Rukhsah.(concession) allowing her not to observe Sawm during Ramadan on the days of her period and that she later makes up for the days she misses, and has chosen this for her as the way to discharge this religious obligation.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
