Periods, boobs

I take I'm not pregnant because I've never had sexual intercourse and only was fingered with Precm. Plus, I've had a period like bleed which last 5 days and the 6 day some dark brown discharge which I believe is quite normal. I'm guessing it couldn't have been implantation because I read that that type of bleeding is just spotting (not a flow) and only lasts up to 2 days.
However, I'm just wondering if it's normal for my beasts to appear bigger and fuller after a period. I don't recall this ever happening before? Just wondering if it's normal or will I have to do a HPT to rule out pregnancy?

Your input would be great (:

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about breast fullness.

How old are you? If you are in your early teen years, your breasts may still be developing. Otherwise, I really don't know why they appear fuller after your period.

You would not be pregnant if you have never had unprotected sexual intercourse, and since you just finished your period.

Hi Maryann
Thanks so much for your reply

I'm 24 so I doubt that's it
I did lose a lot of weight which caused my breasts to go smaller so don't know if that could be related?
It's only been a day after my period so I guess I should just Wait a few more days to see changes?

Also, how can I tell the difference between menstruation and implantation bleeding? This is for future reference

Hi Anonymous,

Wait a few more days and see how your breast look.

Not all women experience implantation bleeding.

After a sperm fertilizes your egg, they become an embryo. It then travels to the uterus, where it implants itself into the lining.

Sometimes, as the embryo attaches, it causes a little bleeding. This doesn't cause any problems for the baby that will develop.

Implantation bleeding occurs about six to 12 days following conception. It is pink to brown spotting. Never increases to a flow. Lasts about two to three days.
