Menstrual cycle causes cramping, breast soreness, enlargement, but not pregnant?

Hi, my name is (…) and I am 24 years old. I currently take Microgesterone but that is the only medicine that I am taking regularly. I am nervous and unsure about whether I should be. I have been cramping and have been experiencing breast soreness and enlargement which I have not ever experienced the latter even during regular menstrual cycles. I did take a home pregnancy test which showed as “not positive.” Since I have been on birth control, I have had some irregularities with my cycle, but this just seems different with the added symptom that I haven’t experienced before. Could you help me with this?

actually these symptoms could be really just normal menstrual cycle pains although you may have never experienced it before,could also be something else like PCOS or other ,if your period has been absent for a while i recommend doing a BHCG test to rule out pregnancy …if nothing showed then a transvaginal usg is recommended.

Breast tenderness or enlargement; changes in appetite; changes in weight; dizziness; headache; mild hair loss; nausea; nervousness; stomach cramps or bloating; vaginal spotting or breakthrough bleeding.

All these previous lines are of.Microgesterone side effects

Check with your doctor another option for contraception.

if pregnancy test is negative,then consider this as normonal imbalance. get a usg abdomen to rule out other causes of dysfunctional uterine bleeding.
take anti spasmodics for pain.
PCOS,fibroid needs consideration.

Microgesterone + recently being sexualy active can cause hormonal imbalnce , if your problem continue for more than 1 month then you need to consult your gynaecologist about changing Microgesterone to another contraceptive method
Good Luck
