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?

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.
