No caffeine, repeat: Excessive caffeine intake can cause breast tenderness as well as pregnancy. What are her dietary habits? A negative repeat pregnancy test in 2-4 weeks if still not menstruating would be reassuring.

I agree with Dr. Russo. If the first test was a home pregnancy test, she should consider a blood pregnancy test on repeat. Slightly more accurate and allows her to follow up in the office.
