Hi, For the last few days, my nipples have been sore to touch. They are easily erected (Firm and hard just like when someone gets cold/or has chills.) I am not pregnant. (I can go into that if you need more info) and it just happened out of the blue for the last few days. My period isn't due for about 13 days yet.... It hurts. No discharge is coming from them.

Hello ForceChild91,

Two weeks cannot be too early to start experiencing PMS. Hormonal fluctuations are happening at this time in your menstrual cycle.

It is difficult to evaluate skin changes over the internet. The white dot could be a white head, or something else. You need to be evaluated in person by your physician.

Thanks for replying, I just thought it was too soon for PMS symptoms since my period isn't due for about 2 weeks yet. I also noticed a white dot on the end of each nipple.... is that part of PMS or something else?

Hello ForceChild91,

It is possible that the soreness may be caused by hormonal changes as the start of your period approaches. If the symptoms do not resolve once you start your period, you may want to contact your physician.
