I am on birth control and i want to skip my period because I have a vacation. Is that bad for me? Are there any side effects of skipping my period?

In brief: No

There is no issue or complications to continuing the active pills of your birth control pillsand skipping a period.
In truth you can do this continuously and not have periods at all without problems. There is no therapeutic effect of having a bleeding episode (a period) while on the pill.
