In brief: Variable.

Everyone's pain tolerance is different.
Here are some questions i ask to see if the cramping is normal. Are you able to go to work or school when you have your period? Do over-the-counter pain medications like midol or Motrin help your pain when taken at the recommended doses? If you answer no to either then your period cramping may be excessive.
