If you mean a cervical erosion, this is usually hormonal and should not cause abdominal cramps.

Various types of trauma can cause cervical erosion. Sexual intercouse, tampons, the insertion of a speculum or other objects into the vagina are all ways that trauma may occur. Other causes include severe vaginal infections or STDS such as herpes or early syphilis. Forgetting to remove your tampon can cause vaginal infections that can lead to cervical erosion. Occasionally vaginal douches or other chemicals such as contraceptive creams or foams cause cervical erosion
