Not from uterus: If you only just started having cramping, it obviously can't be from your uterus. Consider bladder or bowel issues - check with your pcp for a checkup.

Depends: If the symptoms are mild and go away in 2-3 days, you may not be concerned. Are you constipated? As that may explain the symptom. If you are constipated, increase your intake of fiber and water. If the symptoms persist or get worse, it would be prudent to see your doctor.
