Pregnant on the pill???

Ok so this is an weird one and I'm probably worried over nothing but need others opinions or advice please.
I've been on my pill for three years now but recently my dad past away and I've been a mess which resulted in me forgetting to take my pill on afew days here and there (aswell as my other medication for a nerve damage to my leg). I've had periods but worried this is because obviously I've had pill free days so my body would automatically have a bleed.
It's just I've been feeling rough and since yesterday had sore tender breasts.
I'm still taking the pill but worried incase I could be pregnant and if so am I damaging baby. Also would a pregnancy test show up positive with the pill.

I must sound really thick sorry.

stop taking the pill just in case. then POAS. leave it two weeks since you dtd otherwise it might be too early.

Don't stop taking the pill until you know one way or another. If you have missed two or more pills there is always a possibility of pregnancy.

A pregnancy test would still show positive even when taking the pill. If you were pregnant you would be unlikely to bleed in your pill free week.

You can reliably test 14 days after the last time you had sex.

If you think your pregnant stop taking the pill and use other contraception until you confirm.
I got pregnant while on the pill and my period didn't come in my 7 day break.

POAS I fell pregnant on the pill. Tests will work fine and no one was worried that I'd still taken the pill for three weeks whilst pregnant. You do need to stop taking it ASAP, so peeing is needed!

Thanks everyone, I just took a test and it was negative so I will continue as normal. I guess maybe my tender breast are just my hormones??
Thanks again.
