Hello and thanks for the query.

Your question is a good one and I will work on providing good information for you.

The cramping you are experiencing is most likely from the morning after medication. This is a powerful medication which can induce uterine contractions as part of the therapeutic effect of the drug. These symptoms will slowly resolve in the next few days I can assure you. In the meantime maintain good fluid hydration and get plenty of rest - nothing to worry about otherwise.

Thanks again for the query. I hope you find my response to be helpful. If you have additional concerns I would be happy to address them.
