Causes of cramps- infection, endometriosis, some tumours, physiological (that subsides after pregnancy), abnormalities in hormones and in blood vessels. What you can do- consult gynecologist to reach the diagnosis and treat the specific cause. At your age, most often the cramp subsides in time, after short term treatment.
Try using hot water bag. Will relieve pain.
