It Happens: No bleeding and just cramps occur very often. If you are worried get a pg test in 1/2 weeks.

No period : Time is the best tool there. If still no bleeding, contact your primary care physician and check a pregnancy test if pregnancy could be an option.

Yes: Typically you don't, but sometimes you will cramp but not actually have a cycle. The cycle may be delayed, or the cramping is coming from the bowels or bladder.

Options for cramps: Try: omega- 3 fatty acids or magnesium (supplementation or through diet) with your doctor’s approval. Nsaid'scan help with pain. If you desire non-med approaches you can discuss use of a traditional herbal like black cohosh with your doctor. Chamomile tea can be soothing. Sipping green tea can also dissipate pain. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, extra salt. Acupuncture is excellent for dysmenorrhea.

Pregnancy, cyst...: If you are past due for your cycle this can be a sign of early pregnancy, if not you may be having ovarian discomfort from a cyst or infection. If the pains are concerning and you have taken a pregnancy test, call for an appointment or if severe go to the er.

Cramps may be normal: Some women experience uterine cramping during their cycles. It is the body's response to the changing level of hormones. It can be normal, but if your cramping is particularly painful, birth control can help. See your doctor to determine what is right for you.
