Period delay related problems

My wife is on the pill. This means that she can also control (delay) her period. What side-effects, if any, are there for disrupting the natural cycles?

As long as she does not skip periods too often, there should not be any side efffects. Breakthrough bleeding sometimes occurs if this is done too often.

There is no side effect or danger in using the active pills continuously. Her cycles should return to normal as soon as she uses the pill as normal or goes off the pill. Some women may struggle to regulate their periods after going off the pill, but this is normally only temporary.
