Taking Pills to Avoid One's Period During Ramadhaan

Q: I would like to keep all my fast in Ramadhaan. Am i allowed to take a contraceptive pill for the month, to prevent me from getting my period?

A: This is against the natural way and system of Allah Ta’ala. However if someone had taken a contraceptive pill to prevent the haidh and fasted the entire month of Ramadhaan, the fast will be valid.
