My breasts are really sore! Over the past two years I've gained some weight and they seemed to grow! I'm a gg cup! Please help?

Very common: That is very common as breasts get bigger. You're best off trying to lose the weight so the breasts can shrink down to a size without pain. For some women this can be difficult, but likely it's worth it in the long run because it's win/win. If you are at a normal bmi (19-24.9) then you may be a candidate for breast reduction surgery to help with the pain. ...Read more

Annoying: This type of reaction of one's breasts to the hormones of the ovary (estrogen, but more significantly, progesterone) is annoying, but unfortunately, normal. An idea would be to take birth control pills as that would override your body's own hormone levels of Progesterone which are causing this water retention and soreness. If you're overweight, weight loss can help too. Sorry you're going thru. ...Read more

Normal variation: Fibrocystic breasts is the technical term and is very common in many, many women. I usually point it out doing breast exams so women know what it is.
