Menstruating woman unable to perform Umrah due to limited stay in Saudi Arabia

Menstruating woman unable to perform ʿUmrah due to limited stay in Saudi Arabia


I have read on the following link https://nawadir.org/2016/03/30/travelling-for-umrah-whilst-menstruating/ that a menstruating woman should enter into Iḥrām at Mīqāt and proceed to Makkah and perform her ʿUmrah after her menstruation finishes. However, I have a specific scenario which is quite common. If a woman plans to stay in Makkah for five days but her period will start two days before she arrives and her normal cycle is ten days, what should she do? Should she take the pill bearing in mind that the bleeding may not stop fully? What if she has no choice but to return from Makkah before her menstruation finishes?
