Check preg test: All forms of contraception have a certain failure rate, some more than others. By protected sex you mean you used a condom? Condoms definitely have failures (breaking, slipping off) especially when they are not used from the very beginning of intercourse. The cramps you are having could represent your period about to start. I would still check an over the counter pregnancy test (urine).
