Can A Woman Take A Pill To Delay Her Menses For Hajj/Umrah?
Ammar Alshukry

Technically a quick reply is, it is halal to do so as long as it doesn't effect your health. Consulting your doctor takes precedence. Consult doctor and also take advice from other women. There may be experiences and health issues or side effects of the medicine she wants to stay away from that a doctor may not warn her against.

For Hajj and Umrah there is only one event that the period impedes, which is tawaaf specially tawaf al ifadah when it comes to Hajj.
