I haven't had a period since Feb. Periods known to be irregular. Started birth control in April. Currently cramping, spotting and old, dark looking blood clumps in vagina. Its also itchy. What does this mean?

In brief: Irreg bleeds

Hi INair, If the periods were irregular it shows mild hormonal imbalance and so if you are on a LOW dose BCP, it might settle the periods to take a slightly HIGHER dose pill for about 2-3months then go back to a low dose BCP.
This often settles it so pse see OB GYN thanks
