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?

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

Why do your breast get sore or tender two three days after your period goes off

Why do your breast get sore or tender two three days after your period goes off

Doctor can evaluate: Breasts can be sore with a woman's periods because of hormone fluctuations, which may lead to changes in the amount of fluid in breast tissues, the amount of blood flow in the breasts, the sensitivity of nerve endings in the breasts, etc... If one's breast pains are more than mild, especially if persisting after her usual menstrual periods, her doctor can check things out. ...Read more

I was on the Depo-Provera shot for a year and now that I'm off my breasts are sore and tender constantly. It's been three months of this. What's wrong?

I was on the Depo-Provera shot for a year and now that I'm off my breasts are sore and tender constantly. It's been three months of this. What's wrong?

Estrogen: Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) suppresses ovarian hormone production. Once the injection is stopped, it can take several months for ovarian hormone production to return to normal. Estrogen stimulation of the breast can cause tenderness especially in women where estrogen production is dominant or Progesterone production is inadequate. Of course, early pregnancy can also cause breast tenderness. ...Read more

If: If your discharge does not clear up after your next period, recommend that you be evaluated by your doctor. If it is really bothering you, you might wish to see your doctor sooner. Reasons for nipple discharge can include stimulation of the breast, pregnancy, medications, galactorrhea (secretion of milk or similar substance), an abscess or other breast infection, hormonal imbalances (like hypothyroidism), fibrocystic breasts (breasts are very fibrous), blocked mammary duct, breast cancer and intraductal papilloma (non cancerous mass), use of marijuana, anise and fennel. This is not an all inclusive list. I think that nipple discharge can be worrisome for a woman. But the cause can be very benign. Most often there is a cause other than cancer. Take care. ...Read more

If: If a patient has spotting and the symptoms described, and there is any possibility of pregnancy, then a pregnancy test should be checked. Sometimes other hormonal fluctuations (from physical stress on the body, weight (too high or too low)) can cause abnormal spotting. Perimenopausal patients get spotting at times though 41 would be considered very young for that. If spotting continued of the patient had other symptoms, then the patient should see their provider for an evaluation, and also to be sure that their pap is up to date. ...Read more

I am three days late for my period, and I have extremely tender breasts. Also when I go to the bathroom there is white discharge. Should I be concerned about pregnancy since im only 3 days late?

Pregnancy: Pregnancy is a possibility. If you want to be sure you can purchase an early prediction pregnancy test. This will usually give an accurate result a week before your missed period. However if you want to wait a week or more that is also a reasonable option, since a woman's menstrual cycle can vary for a variety of reasons (stress, weight changes, medications etc.). Your tender breasts and discharge may just be pre-menstrual symptoms.
Good luck. ...Read more
