Hi! I have been experiencing sore breasts for about 6 days now and just yesterday they started to tingle also. My last period started Aug 19th and I am pretty sure I ovulated sometime between Sept 2-4. I do not track my ovulation as I am not trying to get pregnant but I can usually tell when I ovulate because of an increase in discharge. My husband and I had sex twice on the 4th. I am not on birth control but he did pull out both times. About 2 days after this my breasts became very sore and have been ever since. I am also starting to break out on my face which hasn't happened since I was pregnant with my daughter. I am also bloated and a little crampy. My period isn't due until the 18th and I have never gotten any menstrual symptoms except like the day before it starts and that is usually just cramps. I've never had sore breasts like this except when I was pregnant. Is it too early for me to take a HPT? I feel like these symptoms are too early to be from pregnancy but I have no other explanation for them.

About a week after a missed period is a good time to take a home pregnancy test. If the test is negative, call your doctor to report these symtoms and hopefully, find the cause. Please keep us posted.
