Vaginal cramping?

This is sort of an embarassing question for me, but during the first and sometimes second day of my period, I experience heavy bleeding and severe cramps.  These cramps don't feel like they're in the lower part of my abdomen, but inside of my vagina.  The pain is sometimes so severe it feels like my bottom is about to fall out (if that makes sense).  Sense I am not on birth control, my doctor recommended that I take Advil or Aleve during my first day to relieve the pain and control my bleeding.  I've never even had cramps before until I had my first pap smear a few years ago.  My pap smear has always come out normal, I don't have any STDs, and I'm not sexually active at the moment.  My doctor says that at my age (23) my body is probably changing and re-adjusting.  The thing that concerns me is that are vaginal cramps normal?  Like I said before, I've never had cramps until a few years ago and they've always been described to me as severe lower abdominal pain.  Has anyone ever experienced this?
