I'm on Nexplanon (2yrs) and I've had extremely sore and swollen breasts for the past three weeks. NEVER happened before. What is going on?

I'm on Nexplanon (2yrs) and I've had extremely sore and swollen breasts for the past three weeks. NEVER happened before. What is going on?

Hormonal changes: resulting from the Nexplanon and/or any other type of hormonal birth control can cause swelling and/or soreness of your breasts. NSAIDs (eg. ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen (Aleve) should provide some relief, but taking these medications frequently on a regular basis may not be a good idea. Depending on how long you have had the Nexplanon, this is a side effect that may resolve in a few months. ...Read more

Normal finding: I am amazed about how often I have women ask me about the veins on their breast. Occasionally they are spider veins but mostly they are blue veins. These are almost always normal findings and normal variations of chest veins. They tend to be more pronounced in fair skinned females. Your symptoms may be normal, genetic, hormonal or even related to pregnancy. See your Ob or Vein Specialist. ...Read more

Due to start my period in 4 days. I have tender, swollen breasts, increase in vaginal discharge, thick & white (3days) Neg preg test 2 days pregnant?

Hard to tell...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Took provera (medroxyprogesterone) to induce period. 3 weeks later I'm still experiencing very tender swollen breasts, cramping and mood swings. Is this normal?

Took provera (medroxyprogesterone) to induce period. 3 weeks later I'm still experiencing very tender swollen breasts, cramping and mood swings. Is this normal?

Possible: Provera (medroxyprogesterone) can also make your breast swollen and tender and with mood swings. Sometimes, you can have a hormonal cyst that makes delays your period. By taking Provera (medroxyprogesterone), the hormonal cyst is not treated. So, the hormonal cyst continues to make hormones which makes you moody and also gives you swollen and tender breasts. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) only induces your period. It doe snot treat the cause. Hope this is clear. ...Read more

Sharp radiating pain next to armpit from top breast to shoulder. Both sides. Very swollen breasts very tender abd swell fatigue not pregnant. Cause?

Sharp radiating pain next to armpit from top breast to shoulder. Both sides. Very swollen breasts very tender abd swell fatigue not pregnant. Cause?

Be seen: If such symptoms are not from pregnancy, you should get a good history and exam as many causes exist. Obviously new exercise can cause pain in that area. But fatigue and swollen breasts make me consider something with your endocrine/hormone system, or something causing swelling throughout your body like thyroid disease, or liver problems. Medications can do that too. ...Read more

Can do preg. test: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more
