    Implantation cramps are not the same as period or menstrual cramps.

    Menstrual cramps happen during a period, which occurs approximately once every 28 days, so long as there is no pregnancy.

    Menstrual cramps happen when the uterus contracts to expel its lining.

    Substances called prostaglandins trigger the uterine muscles to contract.

    Prostaglandins are associated with pain and inflammation. This process may cause cramping.
