Q. Is it permissible to take the medication like the pill (contraceptive) throughout the month of Ramadaan to avoid getting one’s period in order to keep all the fasts
as it is very difficult to keep the missed fasts?
A. Though it is permissible, it is best not to do so. It could have side effects like tampering with one’s cycle, etc. which leads to difficulties and problems in the
future for Salaah, Umrah/Hajj etc. This is besides other long term medical harms.
And Allah Knows Best
