Sore/fuller breasts two weeks before period?

I'm wondering if it's normal to have sore breasts that feel bigger/fuller eleven days after my period has ended and two weeks before it should start again (it started on June 8 and ended on June 15, so it should start again around July 6). I normally don't get sore breasts until a week or so before my period, like normal PMS, so them being sore two weeks before seems a bit strange to me since it's happening so early this time. I am 23 years old, and my boyfriend and I have never had unprotected sex before - we always use a condom and are always as careful as possible. Sometimes I get very stressed over the possibility of becoming pregnant since I don't want to be, and I tend to over-exagerate everything and assume it's an early pregnancy symptom. I'm not sure if it could be a sign of ovulation or not since I don't know much about that. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Any input would be helpful, thank you!

I am also 23 years old. I have been contrmplating if I am pregant, also. I had sex with my boyfriend the last day of my period. And I have noticed that my breast seem to have gotten fuller/heavier and they also feel sore? Constint bathroom breaks are happening to me? What does this mean. Could I be pregnant?

Thank you so much for responding! And no, I am not on birth control yet, but it is something I have been considering.

Mine started feeling fuller a week after my first day of menstruation and up to now 6 days before next period. Just want to know if you are not pregnant?

Thank you for your question and yes, this is very common. This happens to me probably every 3-4 months. I even get cramping feelings and think I am starting early...then nothing until 1 or 2 weeks. Good news that usually when I get this, my cramps and breasts don't hurt so much when my period finally comes. Thats always a happy feeling!

I wouldn't be too concerned about pregnancy until you actually miss your period. Just to mention, are you on birth control? This may help being sexually active (although careful) but to be double protected. This may be something you want to look into.

Good luck!
