No Period After Stopping Pill Negative Pregnancy Test

My last day of by contraceptive pill was on the 21st May, I had a withdrawal bleed (very light) on the 25th May and never continued taking the pill after as me and hubby are trying to conceive this year. Ever since my withdrawal bleed finished I've been feeling bloated, tired, had cramps as well. We had intercourse on the 2nd, 3rd and 16th June. I estimated my cycle at 28 days because I'm unsure what my cycle will be now since Ive stopped the pill, but I am now on day 33 and have had no period still, I still have cramps and bloated and my nipples are really sensitive. I've did a pregnancy test lat weekend and I did one on day 32 (25th June) and have both come back negative. Is this just my body taking its time to adjust to getting back to normal again? I know it can take a few months plus to get it back to normal it's just horrible feeling like this and not knowing what my body is doing.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
As you suspected, your symptoms are mostly likely from your body trying to adjust to the lack of hormones. At this point, you can trust the pregnancy tests. Keep in mind that if you are not having regular periods, getting pregnant can become more difficult. I suggest that you check with your gynecologist and get a pap smear just to make sure nothing more serious than hormonal imbalances is going on.
