Vaginal Cramping?

So I occasionally have vaginal cramps, they don't last long and seem to be random. They feel sharp for a few seconds and then go away. Could this be related to IBS? I'm not pregnant and I've been checked for STDs and am negative. I'm not on my period either. There's no weird discharge, burning,or itching. I do get cramps in my rear, but I'm not sure if that's related either. Could this be normal?

Hi.  Well, I don't know if it is 'normal' but women do have issues from time to time of pain.  This is new?  If it continues, I'd monitor it and give your doctor a call.  Endometriosis can cause that type of pain, yes, issues with constipation or IBS could, etc.  So a trip to your gynecologist would be a good idea if it continues for more than a couple of days.

By the way, there are a lot of infections and things like that which cause vaginal cramping but since you really have no other symptoms like discharge, that seems unlikely.
