What do swelling and pain in the breasts indicate?

Hello, I had my last period on 11/07/2017, though my period can be irregular most times but today is already 23/08/2017. I used postinor2 on 7/08/2017 which was within 72hrs of unprotected sex and I ve also been sexually active thereafter. I noticed increase in my breast size and painful nipple since 14/08/2017 which is only normal, I ve also been feeling little mentrual pains since then. On 18/08/2017 I felt like I was starting to have my period and wore a tampon, during that period within 3hrs I had red wine and hot gin then all of a sudden I started feeling a very sharp string of painful pull from my belly button all the way down. I couldn t walk upright and had to lay on my stomach for the pain to relieve me bit,I checked my tampon and only saw light blood stains. I didn t wear the tampon back on and didn t see anymore blood stains that day but the pain stayed for abt 20hrs and I had alcohol after. Towards evening the next day I start to feel the menstral pain again but it didn t come. On the evening of 21/08/2017 I started to feel it again so i used ampixlos then started getting stains again. I used the ampixlos the following morning too and got the light blood stains again, I ve used it this morning again. I don t understand what s really happening and I m hoping not to be pregnant but if I am, pls what pills can I use to wash it away with ease. Thanks

Hello,

Maybe sometimes the hormonal dysfunction cause those symptoms in your breast. I will suggest you a breast ultrasound.
