Okay, so my periods for the last 3 months or so have been a few days late and on the first day(usually)I get extremely painful cramps in the lower part of my abdomen, so bad that I have to take lots of Midol to even make the pain bearable. Is this normal? My periods used to be really regular and I used to NEVER cramp this bad. I'm still a virgin, is there something wrong?

It is perfectly normal for cycles to change a little over time, especially when you're still young and haven't been menstruating for all that long.

However, since it sounds like you're experiencing some really bad cramps, it would be a good idea to talk to your gynecologist.

The only day I get the bad cramps is on the first day. Another question,I used to spot like 2 days before I started my period...now it just comes all at once. Is this bad?

Having heavier flow at the beginning of your period than you used to is no cause for concern. Periods vary sometimes anyway, and as Joey said, it's also very common for periods to change a bit in the first few years you have them.
