I'm 3 days late and getting negative tests. Why am I cramping so bad? Like they're terrible, I can't bear it. Is my period coming or am I pregnant?

In brief: Dysmenorrhea

Period may be coming.
Normal period are every 3-5 weeks (21-35 days). If pregnancy test is negative then you are not pregnant. This home test are pretty good and reliable. If in doubt , see a doctor. Dysmenorrhea is painful periods (normal in many people). Try Motrin every 6 hours for the pain.
