Sore breasts & nipple shape: question

Ftw: I am 19 and a virgin, also not on the pill.
So, last week it was my fertile window of the month, and I had sore two breast: one on the left felt and still feels a bit stiffer than the other.
Both are sore in the inner part, left breast- right to nipple and right breast- left to nipple (hope that makes sense). When I put muscle ointment it helped a bit but when I press the nipples it's still a bit sore and feels stiffer. Is it normal? Should i worry?

There is no discharge or rash like stains on my skin.
As for my nipples: they are sometimes flat and sometimes out, is that normal? I don't think that they are inverted (like, inside). Just kinda flat.

Hello. Thank you for your message today.

It's likely hormonal. However, you should mention it to your GYN, if only for your peace of mind.

Thanks also I forgot to say that the aching breast (left one) has blue veins over it and connecting above it also blue veins.
It doesnt hurt as much any more but the nipple is sore a bit. Is it dangerous the veins?? Please answer thanks

Hi, again.

Below is a resource on veins in the breast you can look though.


As I mentioned before, see your GYN if you are concerned.
