In brief: It

It could have something to do with an abnormal pap smear.
Abnormal pap smears indicate that there are abnormal cells detected on the cervix (which can spread or maybe a sign of hpv) doctors typically want to repeat an abnormal pap smear in 6 months. Since you have had horrible cramping, it is crucial you get this checked out. Pelvic cramping can be a sign of an infection, endometriosis, pelvic infammatory disease, etc. See a doctor.
