My period was about a week late which never happens ive never been this late very regular give or take 1-2 days. The first day it was heavy with clots little clot, second day it was so light that it was more like spotting then It stopped all night and the next day it was spotting again. The whole time I've been getting cramps, headaches that won't go away unless I take Advil then 1-2 hours it's bac, stomach pains that feel like cramps but are mid stomach region. I've never had a menstral period like this before . Usually my periods last about 3 days and are normal bleeding until the last day where it gets lighter. My question is could something be wrong or is it just a bad period month? I took a pregnancy test at night though and it came out negative

Hi ellie106,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Depending if you had unprotected sex, your chances are higher.  Other conditions such as ovarian cyst, endometriosis and many other can cause changes to your cycle and painful periods.  You will need to see your doctor and explain the changes in your period.
