Hi, I been on the site before a year or so ago.
Im having an issue with my breasts. My right breast has been extremely sore for the last few days that ive noticed. It was slightly tender after my period last week. But now it seems to be really sore, the left one is sore too but no where near as sore as the right one. I don't remember hitting them on anything. There is no discharge coming out of them, no itching, or bruises. A bit of a tingling feeling though in both just more in the right. The right one also feels fuller or heavier than the left. In my eyes they do not look bigger, but my fiance has mentioned they looked bigger. My nipples seem to be normal color and size to me but I look at them everyday so im not sure of any diffrence that way. I have repeatedly done a self exam and can feel no lumps or knots. I am not sure if I am pregnant, given I had just came off a week ago. I did come on a couple days early and had lighter bleeding than normal. The first three days was just spotting then the fourth day filled a pad then the las couple days back to spotting. Please let me know what you think could be going on.
Thanks so much

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question.  The changes in your Menstrual cycle might be due to hormonal changes, other changes can be. 

  • Excessive weight loss or gain. Although low body weight is a common cause of missed or irregular periods, obesity also can cause menstrual problems.
  • Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia. For more information, see the topic Anorexia Nervosa or Bulimia Nervosa.
  • Increased exercise. Missed periods are common in endurance athletes.
  • Emotional stress.
  • Illness.
  • Travel.
  • Medicines such as birth control methods, which may cause lighter, less frequent, more frequent, or skipped periods or no periods at all.
  • Hormone problems. This may cause a change in the levels of the hormones that the body needs to support menstruation.
  • Illegal drug use.
  • Problems with the pelvic organs , such as imperforate hymen, polycystic ovary syndrome, or Asherman's syndrome.
  • It's best to talk to your doctor about the changes.
