Stomach cramps, backache, migraines and an irregular period are not signs of pregnancy. The negative pregnancy test is an absolute proof that you are not pregnant.

You can continue taking the birth control pills as scheduled.

If bleeding doesn't stop or becomes more excessive you may want to consult your gynecologist
