Why am I cramping before and after period?

ok so I had unprotected sex around the time I ovulated (march 12-19th) and my period was due this last saturday (april 2nd). I started having cramps like I was already on my period about a week before it should have started. I ended up starting my period early ( march 29th) and it was a lot lighter than my usual period and only lasted about 3 days. I still had cramping through my period and now I have been off of it for a few days and I am still having cramps! I have taken 3 pregnancy test (the last one on monday, april 4th) and all have been negative...anyone have any idea what this could be??

oh and I forgot to add that I have had bloating since the cramps started too
