Breast tender: Breast tenderness can have several causes but it usually is related to Progesterone levels. In early pregnancy they hurt but also in the latter half of your menstrual cycle is very common to see breast tenderness. If you think you are pregnant it is best to get a serum or blood test. I have other questions such as this is happen every month was this an isolated occurrence?
