Hormones.


A lot goes on during pregnancy not only to grow a baby but to get breasts ready for lactation ( feeding your baby). They typically don't hurt so much the whole time. The first trimester is usually the worst for breast pain.

Other issues


Other issues can cause breast tenderness besides pregnancy such as taking more caffeine or taking hormones or eating more sweets or exercising with a poorly fitting bra. Decrease caffeine and see what happens. If the tenderness doesn't go away in several weeks or you feel a lump see a doctor

Talk to your doctor.


Some women experience breast pain from fibrocystic breasts, which is often worse around their periods. You will need a breast exam in order to determine what might be causing your pain.

IUD side effects


An IUD is coated with slow release synthetic progestins. Many time, progesterone and progestins will increase the breast's sensitivity to your body's own estrogen. Be sure to take an iodine supplement (ex SeaVeg, kelp, etc) every day. This will work to lessen your symptoms.

Hormonal


Just because your tubes are tied, does not mean that your ovaries and pituitary gland are no longer working. This is hormonal.
