Tender breasts
I got married 2 months ago. I am taking Minerva which I have been on for several years as an acne treatment, 3 weeks ago I had a normal period (I think). I was also on antibiotics during that week. We waited 8 days after the antibiotics finished before doing anything. I have incredibly tender breasts and they seem to have grown a bit. The tenderness started in the middle of last week (during those 8 days). I took a home pregnancy test this morning and it was negative. What could be causing this tenderness, or is it possibly just too early to pick up on a pregnancy test? I have been feeling quite tired and emotional but I think this may be psychological.
Thanks in advance

Dear KK

Thank you for visiting

I recommend that you consult a GP, in order for him to draw blood to confirm if you are pregnant or not, as the home pregnancy tests do not always confirm early pregnancies.
