Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

You should take a pregnancy test as you are 16 days late and also have tender breasts. If this is negative, then other causes such as menopause, PCOS, hypothyroidism etc will need to be looked at.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
