    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 638/603/SN=09/1436) In case a woman does not experience menstruation on time in the month of Ramadan as a result of consuming medicine then it is fardh on her to offer salah and keep fast. But this initiative (stopping a natural process with medicine) is very dangerous for health, hence she should avoid it.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
