Welcome to ehealthforum,
Early heavy vaginal bleeding along with severe abdominal cramps is not normal. If you are not regular with taking your birth control pills at scheduled time daily, you may not have effective protection, and unprotected intercourse can lead to pregnancy. The symptoms that you describe could suggest possibility of probable ongoing miscarriage (if you are pregnant), breakthrough bleeding, endometritis etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation done by your doctor/gynecologist. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
Take care.
