ask: Help! Sore breasts two weeks before period!?

By NoName
 
Rate This

I have a question/concern...I am wondering if it is normal for my breasts to feel sore/firm/heavier than normal two weeks before my period is supposed to start. I got my period on June 6 and it ended on June 15, which means that I would be getting my period around July 6. I would say that my breasts started to hurt around the 22 or the 23 of June. My breasts normally start to feel sore a week or so before my period starts, which has always been normal for me, so I'm a little concerned since they started feeling sore so early this time. My breasts are sore around the outer edges, and they only hurt when I push down on them or move around/lift my arms up. The area around my nipples definitely seems more stretched out than usual. There is some darkening around this area, but I think they have always looked like that. I have also been having a clear, watery discharge for the past couple of days.

I'm 22 years old and I am not on birth control. The only form of birth control my boyfriend and I use are condoms, and we have never had unprotected sex. We have always, always used a condom. I know that condoms are not always 100% safe so...ugh.

I have been reading some forums on early pregnancy symptoms that have to do with breast soreness and what not, and I have made myself very nervous and scared. Sometimes I feel very paranoid about becoming pregnant since that's that last thing I want right now. I also sometimes feel that having sex isn't worth all this worrying and that if I am not mature enough to handle a pregnancy than I shouldn't even be having sex in the first place. I tend to over-exagerate everything and assume that it's an early pregnancy symptom as opposed to PMS, and this is not the first time that this has happened. This is the only thing I have been able to think about for the past couple of days! It is so distracting/annoying! So, it would be nice to hear someone else's advice or input. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

Thank you for your time and help!

Hi Anon

Pregnant women experience different symptoms at different times so I don't think this is anything to worry about.

Hi Anon

This is common when a woman has pretty severe PMS. Even walking or going up and down a stairs can be very painful. The pain should subside within a few days. Advil can help. I hope you feel better soon. 

Best,

Susan

I'm 16 years old and for the past few days my breast have been very tender and sore, if I grab then lightly it's very painful but if I just touch them it doesn't! I'm not having sex but have done other sexual things I've also got little white dots on the top of my nipples and when I look this up is comes up wit pregnancy but surely I can't be pregnant ? Please help!

No there is no way you can be pregnant if your not sexually active.

Hi Anon!

If your period isn't due to 18 days, you may not even be ovulating yet - it's far too early to know. If you don't get your period on time then take a pregnancy test. It's too early to tell now.

Best,

Susan
