Welcome to ehealthforum

Birth control pills when started initially cause irregular periods which might be heavier or shorter in duration.But such heavy discharge with skin like tags is something unusual.If you have not taken the pills regularly or missed few and had unprotected intercourse then they could be even due to miscarriage as severe cramps and discharge are suggestive of that.
Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for pelvic examination and investigations as USG scan which would help in the precise diagnosis.
Take care!
