Pregnancy Concern - Tender Breasts

Apart from last weekend (which I'm not concerned about, since we used protection, and I wouldn't be having any symptoms yet anyway), I last had sex two and a half months ago. Since then, my periods seem to have been very light. I started using a menstrual cup right after that, and I'm bleeding less than 20ml each month. I have no idea if that's low for me, since I only started recording it then, but it's low on average.

My breasts are tender and seem to have grown. I've never noticed them being tender before, not to this extent. I've gained a little weight recently, and I'm constantly hungry and feel fatigued - but, I'm a duathlete and just stepped up my training program, so those things can be explained.

Oh, reading about feminism makes me cry, which seems like it should be another warning signal. That said, I'm about 3/4 of the way through my cycle, so I'm usually a bit hormonal right now anyway.

So yeah, I can explain everything except the magically expanding chest. It's possible the growth might be my imagination, but the tenderness isn't. Can anyone think of an explanation, or should I take another test? It might be worth noting here that I've had two negative pregnancy tests already, the last of which was almost a month after the last time I had sex (not counting last weekend).

Any ideas?
