Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. If you are having your regular periods, then the possibility of pregnancy is less likely. However, it makes sense to do an ultrasound of the pelvis and a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy in view of the sore breasts.

The USG abdomen will not only help in ruling out prgancy but will also assist in finding the other common causes of such a pain like endometriosis, PCOD, gall stones, pancreatitis, kidney stones etc. You might need other tests like serum amylase, urine examination, upper GI endoscopy (to rule out peptic ulcers). I’ll suggest you t consult a surgeon for the same and get youself investigated. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
