Feeling a lot of menstrual cramps after starting birth control pills, is it supposed to be like this?

In brief: Give it time

Usually cramps improve after starting the pill, mostly because menstrual flow is decreased.
Since you are just starting you should wait a few cycles for your body to adjust to it.
