Had PMS for 2 weeks prior to that. started with period again on 7/9, still going strong. bleeding subsided, but started heavily again last night. extreme pain and nausea present. breast very sore for more than a month now and intercourse is extremely painful. could not have been pregnant. do not have money to go see a gynae, what could be wrong?

It could be the endometriosis causing this. Cysts can also cause pain and an irregular cycle. You will have to see a doctor to sort things out.
