Using the pill to stop period for a few months

I am using the pill for medical reasons and wanted to know if it is safe to miss your periods using the pill for a few months. I am just a bit worried because I suffer with blood circulation problems and suppose to be taking 1/4 disprin everyday, but am not.
I am worried about blood clotting because I do notice blood clots during menstruation anyway. Should I be concerned?

Thanking You

Please give more information as to the medical problems for which you are using the Pill. If you are prone to blood clots, the Pill may not be a good idea.
