I've read your post several times but can't find anything about the use of birth control so I suspect that you aren't taking/using any.  I mention this because slight cramping, sore breasts, feeling really tired, moody & bloated can be due to pregnancy.  


Having said that, you also didn't mention how old you are but your hypothalamic pituitary axis can take several years to mature and give you regular menses.  Of course, stress, weight change, nutrition, drugs, etc can affect the duration & regularity of your periods.  


If you're not pregnant but still tired, you might be anemic.  A simple blood test can confirm or disprove this.  All in all, it's a good idea for you to get evaluated by your family physician. 


One last thought, it's common to spot after your Pap smear since a brush is used to gather cells from your cervix for analysis.  It's the scraping that leads to the spotting.  


Hope this helps.  Good luck!
