In theory, it should work. However, whether or not it will work can depend greatly on what type of pill you're taking. If you're taking a triphasic or biphasic pill (varying levels of hormones) it's very difficult to skip a period. Monophasic pills work best for skipping periods.

Also, despite type of pill, many women are unable to skip a period completely and will spot or end up having a longer period. Just be aware of that.
