Welcome to ehealthforum.
Chest pain is usually diffuse over the entire chest and can be aggravated by movements, deep breath etc. Breast pain is localized in the breast tissue and usually precipitated by touch, pressure etc. The Breast pain can be cyclical (mastalgia) which is usually due to changes in hormonal levels during your menstrual cycle. Hormone containing pills can aggravate it.
Consider discussing about the symptoms with your gynecologist and request for complete hormonal analysis. Discuss about getting started on insulin modifiers and ovulation inducers to help in regulating PCOS and also help with getting pregnant. Be in regular follow-up with your treating gynecologist.
Take care.
