What's normal after a chemical pregnancy?

Several months ago, I had a chemical pregnancy. That was very upsetting, but we moved on. I have not had my period for 3 months. No spotting, but I have been dizzy when going from sitting down to standing up.

I also have tender breasts (not excruciating pain, but noticeable) and I was shedding quite a bit of hair (it's either been less or I've just gotten used to it), and I was getting a lot of headaches.

I went to the doctor to take a pregnancy test after 70 days of no period and the result was negative. A week later, still negative. What's going on with me? Thanks for any insight you can give me!
