I'm on Nexplanon (2yrs) and I've had extremely sore and swollen breasts for the past three weeks. NEVER happened before. What is going on?

Hormonal changes: resulting from the Nexplanon and/or any other type of hormonal birth control can cause swelling and/or soreness of your breasts. NSAIDs (eg. ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen (Aleve) should provide some relief, but taking these medications frequently on a regular basis may not be a good idea. Depending on how long you have had the Nexplanon, this is a side effect that may resolve in a few months. ...Read more

Very sore breasts. Very Short period three weeks ago. One positive then one negative test. Possibility of pregnancy? Next steps?

See the doctor: It sounds like it's time for a serum pregnancy test, meaning a blood test. Call for an appointment with your primary care doctor. If you develop problems before the appointment like severe abdominal pain, bleeding and cramping, get checked right away. ...Read more

Pregnant?: I assume you are worried about being pregnant, if that is the case, pick up a home urine pregnancy test at your local pharmacy or supermarket. They are cheap and very accurate., and you will know for sure quickly. ...Read more

Change in weight: There could be multiple causes, sometimes when you experience sudden weight gain or weight loss you could be sore, or if you have been using certain muscles that are being used this can also cause soreness. It could also be hormones around the time of your period making you more sensitive to touch. ...Read more
