If it remains negative & you skip a month or 2 call your OBGYN. They can trigger a cycle for a system reset. ...Read more

It is always good to assume that you may be pregnant, since breast tenderness is one of the first signs of pregnancy. If both tests are negative, and you have a period, then you know you are not pregnant. Breast tenderness can also come from hormonal imbalance and overstimulation, or infection if it is just one breast. ...Read more
