Yes, normal.: Need to have a system that helps you remember to take your pill every day. Try placing the pills next to something you use daily, like your toothbrush. Also, try setting an alarm in your phone to remind you to take your pill. If you take your pills consistently, you shouldn't have the cramping, and more importantly, you will have contraception.
