I feel like a teenager again since I have so many questions about my cycle. It's all new to me since this is my first time REALLY off the Pill, so I apologize.
I finished my period two days ago. It was heavy and normal -- it lasted its usual amount of days. I also had a negative pregnancy test around this time.
It's about 2 days since my period finished and I'm experiencing some bad cramps. It's kind of like the cramps you get when you get a swab for a pap smear. I can't be ovulating this early, can I? Cysts? Anything else it may be? It's very unpleasant

I'm afraid we can't tell you the actual answer, as we're not qualified to say why someone's having pain like this. I think it's likely it's about the end of your period. It may be some last contractions from your uterus, for instance, as well as your body adjusting to having periods again. I don't see a cause for concern; but kudos to you for making that appointment.
