Question: soreness in breasts, different from PMS


 panama - Wed Jan 07, 2009 5:12 pm

My period is late, which isn't unusual for me. Normally a week after my period has ended my breasts become very sore. I can't even hug!
Up until a few days ago I hadn't had any soreness at all. Then I noticed that they were sore, but only on the outside. It's the same spot on both. I've never had this happen.
If I am pregnant, would this be a normal thing, or would they be sore all over?

User avatar Hello,
If you were pregnant, this could be a symptom but every woman is different and how she might experience breast tenderness (if she does at all) can vary greatly so the type of pain would not be a clue about pregnancy. If you suspect you might be pregnant, take a home test which should be accurate 4-5 weeks from your last menstrual period.

This may just be some hormonal fluctuation and would fall in the range of normal.

Best wishes
