Thanks for the query.

As both your urine and blood tests are negative, there is less possibility for pregnancy.
Sometimes blood test can give false negatives but that is very rare.
Irregularity in periods can occur due to many causes, like:
-Hormonal imbalance, stress and strain, weight changes, thyroid abnormalities, PCOD etc.
Sometimes bowel movements can also be interpreted as fetal movements.
So you once consult gynecologist, get examined and go for ultrasound.
That will rule out the possibility of pregnancy and also can found out the possible cause for your irregular periods.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
