Welcome to ehealthforum,
Mild uterine cramps after fruitful intercourse could be due to your uterus adjusting and reacting to implantation. If the cramps increase in intensity, it is not normal and you should consider visiting your gynecologist for further evaluation to look for cause for your symptoms.
All the best. Take care.
