Welcome to ehealthforum.
The recent symptoms of heavy spotting, bleeding, cramps, suggest some abnormality like pelvic infection/ovarian cysts.
Discuss with your gynecologist about getting the birth control pill (BCP) changed to alternative birth control measure. Also request for a detailed examination and ultrasound scan along with hormonal levels check to look for the cause behind your recent symptoms.
Take care.
