Be sure also to rotate positions equally such that you are compressing all the mild ducts equally! ...Read more

I'm 10 days past ovulation my left breast has a burning sensation headaches and heartburn.  Could this be an early pregnancy symptom or something else.

Yes: These could be signs of early pregnancy. Additional signs are nausea, sensation of abdominal bloating, dull lower abdominal cramping, sensation of fullness in the breast, and backache.

In case this turns not to be pregnancy, it could also be symptoms preceding onset of menses, sometimes called premenstrual syndrome.
