It's possible...: Most home pregnancy tests are reliable, but not at the lowest levels of pregnancy hormone, which would require blood testing. If you have negative home testing over a 7-10d period you are, in all likelihood not pregnant. Metformin is not a "fertility drug", but a drug aimed at improving carbohydrate metabolism. Not all women with pco will benefit, and the drug can have GI side effects.

Doubtful: If your pregnancy test is negative, you are not likely to be pregnant, and if you have conceived and your pregnancy test is not yet positive, it is not likely that the symptoms you feel are related to a pregnancy.

Yes: Bcp use is not associated with any significant incidence of breast cancer regardless of risk factors, however, certain breast cancers can grow in response to estrogen use. It is advised to begin cancer screening 10 years before your mother was first diagnosed with breast cancer. This should include yearly physician exam and mammography, ultrasound, and/or mri, depending on age and risk factors.

Consult physician: As you can imagine there are several causes for your symptoms, some severe and some not severe. But a physician needs to see you to question you about them and perform a physical examination. Test may/may not be ordered according to the physician's impression, but most of the time he/she will do. Good luck!

Depends: During sexual activity there are many points when sperm containing sexual fluids can leak & contaminate fingers or end up at your vaginal opening apart from the main event. If none of this fluid had access to your vagina, you can't get pregnant from sex using an alternative site.
