Are cramps supposed to feel like this?

I've always had pretty bad cramps, but after my last period (it ended 3 days ago) I have been really, really sore. Like, the way you feel after you have a cold and were coughing your lungs out, and your abdomen gets really sore because of it, kwim? I've never been sore after cramps before. Is that normal?

  • Yes hunny lol it is normal, cramps are spasms or pretty much light contractions of the muscles, they tense up and let loose over and over, like a real good workout. It is so common to be sore/ Try putting a heat pack or taking a warm relaxing bath, soon itll be over
