A woman taking contraceptive pills to fast the whole Ramadan

What do you think of taking contraceptive pills in order to fast at the same time with everyone else?
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen  may  Allah  have  mercy  upon  him said: "I warn you against taking such pills as they are quite harmful and I have been informed of this by doctors. Women should know that this is something that Allah The Almighty decreed for the daughters of Hawwa’ (Eve), so they should be satisfied with what Allah The Almighty had predestined for them and fast when they are not menstruating, then break their fast when they are."
Allah Knows best.
