A woman used contraceptive pills, and her menses exceeded(15) days, is it permissible for her to fast?

A woman used contraceptive pills, and her menses exceeded(15) days, is it permissible for her to fast?

Answer:
The maximum of menstrual blood is(15) days, but if it exceeded that due to a medication, or the like, then it is Istihadah(bleeding outside the monthly period), and in this case she should perform Ghusl(ritual bath), pray, and fast. Moreover, she is obliged to make up for the missed fasting days which exceeded her regular menses.
