Hi, Dr. Stan here to help. The cramps are most likely related to the "punch" and have nothing to do with your menses. Apply an ice pack to the area to help reduce the inflammation from the trauma. You may also take Ibuprofen to help relieve the pain. This should resolve in a day or two. If not a visit to your doctor or an Urgent Care Center would be appropriate. I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. Please leave a positive rating of 3-5 stars. This is how I am credited for my response. Thank you and feel better soon.

Do you still have cramps? Have you had a medical evaluation?
