In the name of Allah the Most Forgiving

If the haiz begins while one is fasting then it will automically break the fast. However, it is better to eat in secret, and not in the presence of other fasting people.

If the haiz ends after the ending time of Sehri (pre dawn meal) during the days of Ramadan, then it is Mustahab (desirable) to stay like a person who is fasting for the reminder of that day until sunset. That is not to eat, drink etc (Fatawa Rahimiyah Vol. 7 Pg 391). Nevertheless, the fast will have to be made up afterwards.

And Allah knows best
