Ovulation cramps: During the Menstrual cycle, the ovary will release the egg from its surface by the breaking of the small sac where it has grown. Some women can feel that happen. Others report cramps several days after ovulation. This may be due to the fimbria of the fallopian tubes "waving" the egg into the tube canal for its journey to the uterus. All of this is normal.
