I've noticed that from mid chest area blue veins and progresses to my nipples. Also I have tender breast & my nipples now hurt, should I be concerned.

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 and they may be related to hereditary factors or even pregnancies. No treatment is necessary unless for cosmetics. ...Read more

Hormonal engorgement: At you age your breasts can still be growing and the growth is certainly influence by your body's production of female hormones.

Unless you miss 1-2 cycles, this is not pregnancy; however, use condoms and spermicidal foam or gel until you are placed on BC pills. ...Read more

Sometimes even if pregnant, the test may show a negative because the HCG level wasn't high enough to trigger the test. In that case if can be repeated 7 days later (or earlier). ...Read more
