In brief: Read answer

Normal periods could happen within a range of plus or minus 7 days.
You might have your period sooner. If you have any chance of being pregnant, do a pregnancy test in 1-2 weeks , if still no period in 2 weeks, repeat your pregnancy test. If you are still cramping and getting worse, please see your gynecologist.
