Stopping pill and pregnancy

I stopped taking the pill (Monofeme 28) on the 6th August (a week before i was due for my period). I had unproteced sex on the 5th & 9th of August. On the 11th August, I started bleeding. it wasn't heavy and only lasted for 4 days. On the 19th August, I experienced a very light pinkish watery bleed (only 1 wipe and it was gone).

I haven't had sex since and i haven't been feeling well. I have been having headaches daily, abdomial / pelvic cramps, increased appetite, tiredness, veins in breasts appear a little darker, but not sore & constipation. I have taken 3 pregnancy tests at home and they have all came back negative (the most recent was Wednesday 24th August). Could it be too soon to tell if i am actually pregnant or not? Please, any answers will be helpful.

Pregnancy is definately possible, but it isn't likely. It's usually recommended to wait 3 weeks after unprotected sex (unless you get a period) for a most accurate result.
