Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been on Metformin for PCOS treatment, chances are that your ovaries responded and you had ovulation (egg release from ovary). If you have been sexually active around ovulation time, then your symptoms of delayed periods, sore breasts, lower abdominal pain could suggest chances of pregnancy. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you have missed your periods, or if you have got abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). You can get false negative results with urine pregnancy tests done very early in pregnancy, as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. The test should always be done on early morning first urine sample to get accurate results (pregnancy hormone HCG is believed to be in highest concentration in this sample, and you should avoid lot of fluid intake and caffeinated beverages in the night before taking the test). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
