In brief: Could be prolapse.
Often times, some women will feel menstrual type cramping with heavy activities if the pelvic floor is struggling to keep good support of the pelvic organs.
This might not be your issue. It really is dependent on the integrity of the pelvic floor musculature, smoking history, childbearing history, and other risk factors.
