Taking gelatine capsules to delay one's periods

Q: I am going for Umrah on 1 April 2018 with my husband and son. My gynecologist has prescribed utrogesan capsules to delay my period. It contains gelatine. Am I allowed to use it or should I get alternate medication?

A: Try your best to get alternate medication.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
