How long will my breasts be swelled and tender?

After breast feeding: Breast engorgement is common when milk first comes in... That is a good sign for most new moms. If you don't want to breast feed, do not express milk. Wear a tight bra and apply ice. You can also take a pain reliever. Without pumping or feeding, no new milk is stimulated, and it should go away after a few days.

Probably hormones: It depends on why they were sore in the first place. If they were sore or tender before or at the start of your period this is a response to the hormones in your body at that time. These cycle throughout the month, making your breasts tender or sore at some times but not others.

It is also common for breast tenderness to occur in the first trimester of pregnancy, but it is normal for it to resolve.

Can I workout if I am still sore from last one?

Yes, take it slow: Mild muscle aches within the muscle groups worked is the rule and not the exception father a good workout. You can exercise through residual soreness on subsequent days. Just take it slow with a thorough warmup (stretching, aerobic training) to begin your workout.
