Hi there i have been getting extremely sore breasts now for 2 weeks after my period. Its the same sort of pain i get befoore my period, only its slighty more painfull and they seem slightly bigger too. I have done a hpt that was negative. I called my doctor and she told me " if your far enough into a pregnancy to get these symptoms then it would defo show up on a hpt". Other than that she didnt give any reason it could be like that. As i say my period only finished 2 wks ago and i have had this pain from as soon as i finished my period. Steadily it has gotten worse. Any ideas what it could be??

Hi again Leigal,
Since you have been experiencing these symptoms over 7 days, make an appointment with your doctor. It does not appear to be pre-menstrual symptoms or pregnancy so get a check up with your doctor. Can you keep us posted on what your doctor says?

Good luck,

Since you had a period two weeks ago and a negative HPT-- this pain in your breasts is not caused by pregnancy. However, if you say that it is getting progressively worse then I would recommend calling your doctor back and scheduling a visit to determine what could be causing the pain. Have you had any other symptoms? Have you had any trauma to your chest/breast area? Recent exercise? I ask about the exercise because sometimes people will work out and feel sore without realizing that the exercise may have caused the sore chest feeling.

Please keep us posted!
