Could breast pain develop in one breast after being on birth control for 4 months? 1-2 weeks before period. Could caffeine cause random breast pain?

Yes: It is possible for one breast to be more sensitive slight hormonal changes than the other. This is much more common in patients with fibrocystic breast disease. These patients are also more sensitive to caffeine in coffee, tea, soda, and chocolate. Decrease these foods in your diet and see if that helps. Make sure you see your physician for a breast exam if symptoms don't improve. ...Read more

See your doc: Some psychiatric medication, antidepressants and atypical neuroleptic medications, rarely can increase prolactin, which can lead to in irregular periods, lactation, tender breasts and firm, enlarged nipples. But you need a blood test to confirm elevated prolactin level and, if so, subsequent diagnostic radiology testing to confirm it is not from another cause. Call and see your doctor. ...Read more

Age 24. Gave birth a week ago. Dark looking breasts during pregnancy. Flat nipple. Blood from both breasts in colostrum. Boil beside breast. Advice?

Nipple problems: If someone is breastfeeding and has cracked nipples there may be some blood. Most women don't have to deal with that. Also need to have someone see if it is a boil - as in an infection - or if it is a blister from nursing. If someone is having problems breastfeeding it would be a good idea to talk to a lactation consultant. Also should have breasts checked by MD to see if infected or not. ...Read more

Swollen breasts swollen breast veins dull cramping for 4 days a week before periods due and moody&increase in bumps on breast mean pregnancy?

Get a pregnancy test: If you missed a period, get a pregnancy test. It's the only way to know. If it turns out that you're not pregnant after missing your period or if your period comes, then you need to get a birth control method now. Especially if you don't want to be pregnant. Consider an iud or Nexplanon which are implants that you just set and forget. ...Read more

Hi, 20 year old female, yellow crusty discharge from one nipple, its also itchy and the nipple is dry and cracked. ?

Areolar rash: Studies show eczema can occur in this area, however the yellow crusty discharge gives me concern for impetiginization of likely eczema/atopic dermatitis in your nipple area. Please see MD. Likely treatment will be a steroid cream and topical antibiotic. If there is nipple inversion, mass or lump underneath the discharge you may need to rule out other conditions with a Dermatologist. ...Read more

Irregular periods > 1 year, orange nipple discharge 6mos, &self-diagnosed fibrocystic breasts 6mos. Quit breastfeeding 1.5 yrs ago. What's happening?

I suffer from premenstrual symptoms (abdominal cramps, mouth ulcers, painful gums, sore breasts) for 2 weeks in every month. why so prolonged?

Visit MD: If your body reacts to your female cycle like this every time it probably has to do with the way your body handles hormonal changes they accompany this window of time. Palliative treatment of mouth ulcers with Advil (ibuprofen) and a swizzle rinse with a numbing agent would help you get through mouth soreness. ...Read more

Both nipples have been erect (without going down) constantly for 7 days straight & nipples are sore (though my breasts aren't. What could cause this?

Both nipples have been erect (without going down) constantly for 7 days straight & nipples are sore (though my breasts aren't. What could cause this?

Not entirely sure: I will assume that you are a new mother who is breastfeeding. Nipple engorgement can occur with accumulation of excess milk, which can be associated with pain and tenderness. It is managed by removal of the milk. Another cause of nipple erection is sexual arousal or use of a nipple toy, although these shouldn't account for persistent erection for 7 days. ...Read more

7 months pregnant and breasts have been leaking colostrum, third baby, nipples stinging really bad. Why?

7 months pregnant and breasts have been leaking colostrum, third baby, nipples stinging really bad. Why?

Body preparing: Congrats on baby number 3! your body has "been there, done that" before, and so knows a baby is soon to come and is now beginning to prepare for what happens after birth, including early milk production and toughing of the nipples. This time it recognizes the pattern, and so these type of changes occur earlier in subsequent pregnancies. Make sure you are getting plenty of rest to prepare for birth. ...Read more
