Hi crampygal,

This might have more to do with your diet than with your period. If you have been cramping in the middle of the night but you don't have a bowel movement then you may be constipated. 

Take a look at our reference page for causes, symptoms, and treatment: https://www.empowher.com/media/reference/constipation

Good Luck,
