Post Plan B; what's going on with my body?

I took Plan B exactly 8 weeks ago, 2 hours after having sex for the first time (and only time) with my boyfriend. We both think that there was no ejaculation but I wanted to lessen chances as much as I could. My period had ended about 4-5 days before the incident. A week after taking it I got the "period" that Plan B is supposed to induce. Then I got a period 30 days later. This period was fairly normal however it was very heavy for three days and then really light for two days. My period is supposed to be starting in about a week. I have taken about 7 pregnancy tests over the time frame of this whole ordeal, the most recent one being two days ago. All of these have come back negative.

Anyhow, I have experiencing some interesting side effects of what I hope is only the pill messing with my hormones. I have had some stomach/ side pain on my left side by my ribs and all the way down to the top of my hip bone. Also my uncomfortable airlike feeling between my hipbones in my pelvis area which has only started in the last week or two as well as some minor pain occasionally in the same area. I have had a little bit of a stuffy nose but it is cleared up immediately after blowing my nose. Also I have noticed that my cervical mucus has began to smell more strongly than normal. However it still remains clear and if anything a little less abundant than normal. Finally within the last couple days I have experienced minor bloating of my stomach.
I have come to believe that these symptoms are because of ovulation? Would that be a likely cause? Could it also be stress? As I have been very worried about the whole situation. I have been told that I am not pregnant. Is that a likely assumption? Could I be? Could the pregnancy tests have been false negatives this long after have intercourse? I have done some nerve wracking research on the whole thing almost everyday for the two months since the event. What can I do to help with these symptoms?
