What causes severe menstrual cramps?

Hello, i have severe pains in by abdominal region during my periods. It doesnt feel like the usual piercing period cramps in the lower abdomen. This is quit unbearable and it feels like the inner lining of my abdomen is being scrubed with an iron sponge. Could this be a side effect of drugs i took a few months ago? Because i began to experience it the month after i took the birthcontrol pills.
