  • Implantation meaning the egg is becoming fertilized.. sometimes during implantation you can spot-- it can seem like a period. A few questions to consider.. did you just get off birth control? If so, your body is still regulating itself-- this could be why you're feeling these cramps. Your cycle will probably be all over the place for awhile. If you didn't just get off birth control-- maybe the cramping is you ovulating--or releasing of the egg. If that's the case then... you know what to do. Wait a week or so and take a pregnancy test and see what happens. I hope this helped.. :)
