Hi Anon - It's not likely you're pregnant after having a period and three negative pregnancy tests.Pregnant women do not get menstrual bleeding although they can bleed in pregnancy. A menstrual period happens when a pregnancy does not occur that month and the lining  of the uterus, that would otherwise house a baby, breaks down in the form of blood and tissue.  A baby could not survive this so a woman is not pregnant when it happens.
