You are ill: No. It sounds like you are ill and with the cramping, most likely have a urinary tract infection.

Yes: As you rperiod approaches the level of prostaglandins in your circulation increases. That can lead to an increase in cramps. Motrin, aleve, (naproxen) aspirin, etc can help th ecramps. If you do not want to conceive, ocp's will likely decrease the cramps as well.

Yes: You could have cramps at any time during the cycle. The cramps can easily vary in timing from cycle to cycle, but most women do experience about the same symptoms each month.
