Is delaying periods by using pills, to fast the whole Ramadan, permissible?

There are women who take pills to delay their periods and fast the complete Ramadan without menstruating. Is this permissible from Islamic point of view?

Taking pills to delay the menstruation periods harm women’s nature of health. Pills should not be taken, because women cannot perform prayer during periods but they can fast. You may find further information on this subject in the following article:
