Misinformed?: Nope. Not at all. A missed period would come before there were true physical changes in your body. But, if you miss your period you should still test for pregnancy. ...Read more

Menstrual cycle: If you have had unprotected sexual intercourse do a home pregnancy test; breast issues are not diagnostic. It might be a great idea to get on birth control pills or use condoms. ...Read more

Maybe. Maybe not.: One can re-test in a week. An early menstrual period may be caused by changes in hormone levels, which can be due to anxiety, stress, overworking, intense exercise, fatigue, or excessive weight gain/loss. If pregnancy happens, a bit of spotting sometimes occurs 9-14 days after conception and may seem to a woman that she's starting an early period. If symptoms continue she can see an ob-gyn doctor. ...Read more

10. Days of missed period, getting white bumps around my nipples, negative pregnancy test, can I still be pregnant?

10. Days of missed period, getting white bumps around my nipples, negative pregnancy test, can I still be pregnant?

Time and technique: If you did the test correctly at 10 days after missed period and it was negative, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor.

Concern: At age 20 not having a period for a year is no normal and should be evaluated regardless of the raised bumps or sore breasts. See your doctor soon. Good luck ...Read more

Sebaceous glands: There are sebaceous glands around the edges of the areola. Around the base of the nipple, there may be some milk ducts. These are getting stimulated to het ready for lactation and are normal. If there is tenderness , you may have a blocked duct. Warm, wet compresses can help with this. ...Read more
