Menstrual cramps are caused by contraction of uterus and shredding of endometrial epithelial layer during menstruation. C-Section does not change normal physiology of endothelial mucosal layer or uterine muscle contractions. You should see Ob-Gyn. If you are menstruating and experiencing pain, which was same as prior to C-Section then you should take meds as prescribed by OB-Gyn for menstrual pain. If pain is lot severe compared to prior pain then you should see your Ob-Gyn as soon as possible to rule out certain diseases like uterine fibroid or endometriosis.
