What causes severe menstrual cramps?

I am 18 and For the past 4 months my period symptoms and pain has been compared to labor pains from a specialist i went to and before i had never had symptoms at from it and been trying to get pregnant for 4 months but all the test are negative and i have been getting my period every month and they have always been irregular and they still are but with very cringing pain symptoms along with it for 4 months. So is it possible i could still be pregnant.
