y bf ejaculated on my hip on 27th april but I had a doubt that the sperms might have entered. So I took an I pill on 30th april that is after 70 hours. I got my periods on 11th may. On 23rd may my left breast got really tender and sore (for over a month the pain in my breast is still there). On 27th may I took an HPT which came out as negative. On 3rd june I took another HPT which was again negative and on 5th june I again got my periods. But the pain in breast did not go so I went for a blood HCG test on 15th june which says my level was less than 1.20miu/ml that is negative for pregnancy and on june 29th I again got my periods. Now I am really worried as to why am I having this unusual left breast pain that starts from the lower part of my breast then moves to nipple,armpit, arm, shoulder and upper back also both my breasts are tender and occassionally the right breast also hurts. Are there any chances of being pregnant. Please help people I am new here. I don't want to be pregnant righr now.

Hello Anonymous,

Have you had unprotected sex since your last period? If so, then there is a chance that you could be pregnant.

Wait until your period is late by at least one week, and take a home pregnancy test.

Hello saeshagupts,

I would like to welcome you to the EmpowHER community. I can tell you that you are not pregnant. Having a monthly period and several negative urine pregnancy tests and one negative blood test proves this.

The concern is what is causing you to have persistent breast pain. Have you spoken with your physician about this?

Mastalgia is breast pain that can be classified as cyclical, which is associated with menstrual periods, or noncyclical. Noncyclical pain may come from the breast or may come from somewhere else, such as a pinched nerve, nearby muscles or the spine.

Please contact your physician, who can perform a physical examination and will probably order a mammogram. In some cases, a biopsy of the area is necessary.

Do keep in contact with us and let us know what is determined as the cause of your pain.

All the best,

Hi. I went to see my gynae. She examined my breast and she told me I am absolutely ok. There is nothing to worry. But I am not satisfied I still have doubts. My breasts have never been like this earlier. And from past two days I am even feeling nauseated. What is happening with me. Really worried.

Hello saeshagupta,

If you are not satisfied with what your gynecologist's response, get a second opinion. A diagnosis cannot be made over the internet.
