cramping but no period and not pregnant

So for about two or so months now I've been having pains where my uterus is. It feels like menstrual cramps but I have yet to have a period and I took a pregnancy test and it says negative (if I were pregnant I'd be about 6 or 7 weeks along and I'm pretty sure at that point a pregnancy test would catch that).

What else could it be? I don't have insurance so I can't go to a doctor and quite frankly I'm starting to panic.

Hello,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The light cramps in the uterus are common during early pregnancy, it happens due to contractions in the uterus. If it is getting severe, do not delay your visit to the gynecologist.
Get yourself examined thoroughly along with blood beta HCG test to confirm your pregnancy. The UPT (urine pregnancy tests) in early pregnancy can show a false negative result (negative test even though you are pregnant) due to less concentration of pregnancy hormone (HCG) in the urine. Blood test and an ultrasound scan are more accurate and conclusive.
If you do not have insurance try taking help from 'free clinics', they take care of medical needs of people without insurance at subsidized rate.
Take care.

can you still be pregnant, even though you are over a month of your periods and your tests are showing negative?

Pregnancy after Menstrual cycle?
I was intimate with my boyfriend in very early August. At the end of August I got my period, it wasn't like spotting because it was heavy like usual. However, I missed Septembers period but have been having cramps and pressure like menstrual cramps. Is it possible to be pregnant after already having a heavy period weeks after unprotected sex?

Cramps, no period, and not pregnant.
I want to know this answer too. I have been having cramps for over a month now. My last period was late and light, but still five days of constant flow. The doctor told me I had an infection, but the nest came back negative. He says there's no way I'm pregnant. I'm not convinced... Now this period is a couple days late, but I haven't quite feeling like I'm on my period since before the last one so it's hard to tell if it's coming.

womb cramps
I haven't been sexually active for almost 3 months now. I had all my menstrual periods. The first 2 months I had some pregnancy signs. Since I had all my periods, I'm convinced am not pregnant. But I had womb cramps lately. Should I be worried?
