I had crazy periods when I was on the copper IUD. (I hated it but that is besides the point.) I felt awful and just not myself, maybe this is what your feeling. I had a lot of lower back pain and spotting. On the other hand I did have a co-worker who got pregnant on her IUD and she ended up having a lot of issues and giving birth to her daughter at 23 weeks (not sure if it was related or not.) I would say if the home tests and doctors tests come back negative you are probably not pregnant. But if you really feel you are, maybe you should test again in a few weeks. I got so sick of my IUD I had it removed after only a few months. I hope this helps.
