Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sometimes, you can have your normal fertility returning back as soon as you stop with your birth control use. If you have had an ovulation in your cycle after stopping with birth control use, you can expect chances of pregnancy. The lower abdominal cramps could be suggestive of possibility of implantation, Braxton Hick’s contractions, infective causes etc. Wait and watch for your periods. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any new symptoms. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
Take care.
