My period isnt due til the end of the mobth. Usually around the 21 through the 28th is when it normally comes. The last few days my nipples have been really sore and ive been real gassy. I have had sex a few times in the past week and my husband tends to pull or pinch my nippples all the time. I really hope im not pregnant as I already have one child. My boobs normally do get sore right before my period but I just keeping thinking I may be pregnant.

It sounds like you have answered your own question in your post: "my husband tends to pull or pinch my nipples all the time", and that would certainly explain sore nipples!

Have you talked with him about what you do and do not enjoy sexually? Can you show him how to touch your breasts and nipples, so that it is pleasurable to you? Even if you do enjoy your nipples to be squeezed during the "heat of the moment", you mentioned the phrase "all the time" which indicates that it is bothersome and you do not enjoy it. Let him know when you do/do not enjoy your nipples being squeezed, or you can ask him to be gentle with your breasts for the next few weeks and caress them to see if the soreness dissipates.

You mentioned being worried about pregnancy. If you and your husband are having unprotected sex (without condoms, or without hormonal contraception such as the pill), there is a chance of pregnancy.

If you are experiencing any discharge from your nipples, if your breasts or nipples feel warm-to-the-touch, or you are experiencing pain that worsens, you would want to call your doctor (these are possible signs of infection).

Thank you for replying. And I have told him that my nipples are sore. It doesnt bother me for him to play with them. And no I dont have any discharge out of my breast. And yes we have an unprotetected sex. He was pinching and squeezing them for a few days straight but I just wasnt sure if they would be this sore from that. I guess I can wait it out and see if my period comes at the end of the month
