Sore breasts, negative pregnancy test, metal taste on tongue. How common is having periods during pregnancy?

My breasts have been sore all over, especially my nipples ,for the past two weeks. My husband and I were scared that I may be pregnant, so i took a test. It was negative, however, my period missed away and my breasts seem to be getting bigger and hurt worse everyday. I have gained 7 pounds in the last month and feel very exhausted for no reason.(April 2nd is my last mensural circle and we took the test on may 11th).Nowdays sometime i feel like a metal taste on tongue ..and sometimes feeling tired.. Should I take another pregnancy test? I know that some women still have their period during pregnancy. How common is that? I do not have health insurance right now so going to the doctor is out of the question. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to HCM.
Your LMP was 2nd April and did pregnancy test on 11th which was also negative.There is complete absence of period during pregnancy. If bleeding is present, then possibility of abortion is there.
Do a USG lower abdomen to rule out underlying pathology or conception.
There are several reason of missed or delayed period like thyroid problem, psychological upset, stress, over wt or extreme loss, eating disorder, ovarian cyst, hormonal imbalance etc.
Do some hormone tests like thyroid profile and LH/FSH.Then consult with your doctor with all test reports and take advice accordingly.
Take healthy diet, control body wt, avoid stress and need proper sleep.Also wear tight breast support to relief from breast problems.
Be well and practice safe sex to avoid unwanted pregnancy.
