Am I pregnant or is there something else going on in my body?

I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on September 30th and October 7th. He mentioned that  the first time he believes he might have ejaculated inside my vagina. I went to a clinic and took a urine pregnancy test, it came out negative but I had peed twenty minutes before I peed for the sample. My period was supposed to come October 18th and it did not come until October 22nd and ended the 27th. The first day I was spotting brown discharge, however, the second day it was a bit more and became heavier and heavier through the day. It stayed heavy for about three days after that and then suddenly stopped. I have been feeling bloated, I am craving different foods that usually I don't like, I'm moody, I often urinate, I have back pains, and really bad cramps. What could this mean?

Since you had your period, it is more likely that your body is simply acting up, for lack of a better term. No harm in taking an HPT if you're really worried, but based on your description, I doubt you're pregnant. Keep an eye on your symptoms, especially the cramps, and if they are getting worse, or not going away, check with your physician to make sure nothing is going on.
