In brief: Many possibilities

There are many causes of breast tenderness other than pregnancy.
A lot of salt or caffeine can cause this as can some medicines. If your periods are regular and the pregnancy tests are negative, you're not pregnant. Now is the time, however, to start a reliable method of contraception and remember to always use condoms to decrease the risk of STDs. Hope this helps.
