Trying to conceive. Taking Clomid. Tender breasts, darkening nipple. Am I pregnant?

Ive been trying to conceive for the last year and a half with no luck. for the past two cycles I have been on clomid starting at 50 mg and 100mg respectively. since all my ovulation test are negative my obgyn did an ultrasound and gave me a shot to stimulate my ovulation. My last period started on the 2nd of Nov and ended on the 10th of Nov. I am usually on a 25 day cycle so I was expecting my period on or around the 26th of Nov but nothing as yet. It is now the 1st of Dec and i am experiencing intermitent cramping and low back pain but no period. As usual I started what I thought was my Pms phase with swollen and tender breast. this usually will go away as soon as my period starts but since I havent gotten my period it went away on its on only to start back up a few days later. I have a heaviness in my breast that is not unusal but normally dont have this feeling this long and especially without my period. I have not noticed any changes in areola and or nipple darkening but i am not sure since I am of tanned complexion . I am also not experiencing any nausea or cravings. however, only one day did I experience a smell aversion to a usual dish I prepared for my husband. I have cooked it since but no issues. I am a bit concerned since I am 41 and about to turn 42 at the end of this month and I have read that clomid may anticipate early menapouse. I am scared to death to take a test and not be pregnant so I havent done anything at all. I also have felt warmer than usual but havent measured my temperature with a thermometer. Moody? yes but I didnt think anything of it since I am experiencing pre period symptoms everyday. i dont know what to do and I need some help. I hope i have provided enough information to get some sort of help and or clarification. oh by the way, as far as discharge goes I am experiencing some yeast infection life symptoms but very light. help!!

Thanks for your query
I can understand your problem and fear but you will have to do the pregnancy test to see the results. Symptoms you are having may be a part of PMS also. So you should check. In your case age is a important factor as ovarian reserve decreases with increasing age. I will suggest you to consult a good infertility specialist soon.
Best of luck and take care...
Hope it helps you..
