Q: 

I have been on and off the contraceptive pill for about 3 years now and I always skip the sugar pill (so at one point I went nearly a year without having a period) Is this harmful for my health? What are the negative effects of doing this?

Also when I went extended periods of time skipping the sugar pill I would get a 'light' period what does this mean?
