Breast tenderness and major swelling. 3 days of light period (abnormal) a week later, bleeding again in am. Stopped bleeding, bleeding again later in pm. Boobs still very sore and swollen and what seems like bigger... Pregnancy tests are negative. Increased urine output, mood swings.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
You could be experiencing hormonal changes. Hormonal changes can be caused by something simple such as stress or changes in sleep or diet; or it could be caused by something more serious such as ovarian polyps, cysts, or fibroids.
Below I have pasted a link to a HER article that talks about causes of irregular periods.
