Question:

 Dear Dr. Nabulsi,
 Is it permissible for women to take some medication to delay menstraution so that they can fast all the month of Ramdan?
 Thank you

Answer:

 Dear sister,
 Assalamu Alaikum,
 It is permissble if the doctor confirms that it has no bad effects on their health, but we advise them not to do because it is a natural thing and it will not be more rewardable if she fasts the whole month.
 Best regards.
