Highly Sensitive Nipples. No period this month.

Hello! I've been experiencing highly sensitive nipples for the past week. Just to rub or scratch them they hurt. The rest of my breasts are a little sore. I didn't get my monthly period this month (April). Not uncommon though for me. My cycles aren't always regular. But lately they have been coming on time each month. I've been a little stressed lately so that may have been the reason why I missed it this month (has happened before with no pregnancy). But usually if I miss my period I don't have the sore breasts or the PMS symptoms. I've had a little cramping yesterday that felt like I was going to start my period but it still hasn't come yet. Now I've been pregnant before and I know the symptoms. Just not experiencing all of them. I don't know if there may be something else wrong though. Any ideas?! Also my husband deployed to Afphganistan in February so I haven't had sex in over two months. So I know I'd have more pregnancy symptoms by now if I was. But they say each pregnancy is different.

Hi Armywife,

Thank you for your question. Since you are late for your period, I would suggest trying a pregnancy test just to be sure. If you are not pregnant, this could certainly be a sign of pre-menstrual symptoms as well. Preganancy and pre-menstrual symptoms often mimic each other. Do yourself a favor and try the pregnancy test to rule out the possibility. Stress could certainly be a contributing factor as well. Every women deals with stress differently therefore, a positive diagnosis should be consulted with your treating physician.

Good luck,
