Does this sound like a miscarriage?

I am new here and would like some advice please.

I have been off the pill for 12 months now and since then my cycle has always been regular with a 4 day bleed each time.

This month my period was 5 days late and been very heavy with stomach cramps and backache and lasted for 10 days so far.

I did a pregnancy test just before I started my period which was negative.

I am just getting a bit concerned about the length of my period which is only just getting lighter and darker.

Other than back and stomach ache I have been feeling really drained for about 3 weeks.

Not sure what to do now.

Hi camperjam ,I'm not really sure what's going on but didn't want to read and run!
My early miscarriage at 6 weeks was like a more heavy,painful period than normal with cramping, but had I not had positive pregnancy tests before I probably wouldn't have recognized it as a miscarriage, it was totally unlike my miscarriages at 11 and 12 weeks . My bleeding with the miscarriage at 6 weeks was over within a week. I did feel drained afterwards and had faint and dizzy spells for a while.
Perhaps you should phone your GP tomorrow for advice? 10 days does sound like a long time for a period.
Hope it all resolves soon for you.
