I took 3 pregnancy test that came up negative and I’m on birth control but I don’t have tender breasts before my period? It should be coming up in 4 days. I’m worried.

Hello. Thank you for posting.

A woman does not always have to have tender breasts at this time. If you are on birth control and taking it regularly, as directed, you are protected every day. There is only about a 1% chance of becoming pregnant on the pill with full intercourse, so the risk is very small.
