Question: Really sore breasts

 missmoonshine08 - Sat Nov 08, 2008 12:15 am

I have had extreamly sore breasts and I am 3 weeks away from my next cycle and it occurs all the time and they are never not sore. I am concerned this might be able problem. I have a very large chest and it is very hard for me to find a proper bra that supports, could that be the problem? I am only 19 years old.

User avatar Hello,
Large breasts alone can cause pain, especially back pain. But, some people do have ultrasensitive nipples and when it is cyclic it is hormonally caused. Water retention can also manifest in sore breasts. You should discuss it with your doctor.

Best wishes.
