Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

You may have an infection which is causing the itching sensation.  Infections do not need to be treated necessarily and can go away by themselves.  Also infections do not effect the menstrual cycle.

Your cycle may be caused by stress, or hormonal imbalances which are common in adolescent girls.  An irregular, missed or late period is no cause for alarm.  It is only necessary to have a regular period if you trying to get pregnant or you have severe negative symptoms such as debilitating pain.
