I am supposed to start my period today, this morning I woke up with what I thought for sure were period cramps, I went into the bathroom and they continued all together for less than 5 minutes and then subsided. I have had no bleeding whatsoever. Usually when I PMS my breasts get swollen and sore and that'll go away on the day I start my period but my breasts are just firmer feeling and swollen. I have been having unprotected intercourse all through the month. So my question is, could I have had implantion with the cramps but not have bled?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is not necessary to have implantation bleeding, you can also have only abdominal cramps during implantation. The chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely. You should consider waiting for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. If you do not start with periods within 10 days of expected period dates or if you develop any new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy, or if you get abnormal periods, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
