What is the cause of breast pain?

So..my breasts have been hurting for a little over two weeks, maybe two and a half weeks (lost count) and I missed my period for three months and before that was two and a half years. I felt nauseous for a couple days but that went away and the flow was pretty heavy the other day. The cramps are so much worse then usual but they re slowly going away...and I don t know if this is true or not but I read online that the clots aren t supposed to be bigger then a quarter, and some were. I should probably mention that when the breast pain started, it actually started in my nipples...and then the pain spread to my breasts...I don t know if that means something...and the pain just gets worse little by little. I should also mention that on the heavy day I was using tampons that were for 5-6 hour use and I was changing them literally every hour. Also, that same day at 5:10 am when I woke up my bottoms looked like a crime scene...well not literally but my bottoms were soaked. Today my period was getting lighter to the point where the color was a little brown, which I heard is normal and means I m nearing the end of my period. But then I felt a rush of blood and when I got to the bathroom, an abnormally large clot came out. A smaller clot came out not too long after and a second smaller one came out when I felt another rush . The blood is bright red and my cramps are coming back and the pain is almost unbearable. What do you think this could be?

Don't worry . Actually you are havi g heavy bleeding bleeding because you did not have menses for 3 months so your uterine lining has grown a lot and is shedding now as bleeding and clots.
In my opinion get yourself examined from gynecologist as you have been bleeding lots since many days and you have chances of decrease in your hemoglobin levels and also for breast examination.
