Orgasm both helps relieve the pain of menstrual cramps, but can also induce cramping (which lasts a short time). Clitoral stimulation may be inducing cramps in you if it is close to your period, but usually the effect is to make the cramps less painful. I would recommend taking Ibuprofen 600 mg about an hour before you plan to be intimate to help lessen cramping, unless you have been told by a doctor not to take Ibuprofen (issues with easy bleeding/bruising, gastric ulcer).
