Experiencing haidh during hajj

Q: If a woman wants to go for hajj, and she is worried that she might get her haidh before or during hajj, what is the ruling for her in detail? Can hajj be done during those days? Should she go, not go? If it starts in the middle what should she do?

A: She should book for additional days so that the rituals of Hajj can be performed correctly. Whilst a woman is in the state of haidh, it is permissible for her to fulfil all the rituals of Hajj except for tawaaf.

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