Hi there. Yesterday I began experiencing a burning pain (very quick, comes off and on and lasts about a few seconds) in my breasts. I've experienced breast tenderness many times before (I'm on the pill) and this isn't like it at all- and it has me very concerned. I was wondering if this is considered a pregnancy symptom: I have not had sex since weeks before my most recent period, but I was concerned that maybe dry semen (or some that for some reason didn't get washed off?) may have come in contact with the outside of my vagina while going to the bathroom or something. I've also become a bit nervous of my BCP's effectiveness after reading posts of people that think vitamins alter the integrity of oral contraceptives (I had a very high dose of vitamin c on the day of the potential dry/partially washed off semen on hand risk). My questions are if I should be concerned by pregnancy due to the hand incident/ high dose of vitamin c, and if pregnancy isn't a risk, what should I consider when thinking about the breast pains?
p.s. I'm up to date on all my STI tests (negative).

What you've described doesn't pose a pregnancy risk, but this pain is likely something to get checked out by a doctor if it doesn't subside quickly.
