Get checked: There are a number of common reasons for this however to treat it properly you have to identify the source and that involves an exam and possibly some blood work.

It is not normal.: I wonder when was your last gyn check up. Your condition is serious enough to get immediate examination and treatment.

Yes: Yes it is possibe to still get pregnant, but irregular cycles can make it more difficult. You should speak with your ob/gyn or a reproducitve endocrinologist about further testing to determine the reason why they are irregular and if there are any other factors that may be affecting your ability to conceive (the fallopian tubes and semen).

Options: You will need to see your obgyn for an exam and testing. Depending on your age and fertility plans there are lots of treatment options. Birth control pills can regulate your cycle. Mirena (levonorgestrel) iuds can minimize your periods. Lysteda is a great new hormone free drug used to stop heavy periods. If you are done with pregnancies ask if you are a candidate for an endometrial ablation.

Shotting?: I am not sure what you mean by "shotting." however, if your most recent period was shorter or lighter than usual, it is possible you are pregnant and it was not a true period. It might be a good idea to visit a doctor or take a home pregnancy test.

Watch and wait: It could be that your period is lasting longer than usual. Sometimes, your period can last longer than usual. For the itching, you can take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (beware, it will make you sleepy!) also, any chance you can be pregnant? Are you on any birth control? If not, this could be a miscarriage in progress.
