You can ask your girlfriend to take a pregnancy test now and one more after 3 weeks. Stomach ache is usual during periods because of muscle spasm. It is advisable to have protected sex to be out of worries.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The heavy period your girlfriend is having is not likely to be due to having sex during the periods.The prolonged and heavy bleeding she is having can be due to the hormonl disturbance or due to some fibroid which needs to be investigated.
