Hello I am 4 DPO & starting yesterday, my nipples have been constantly hard and very tender to touch. Could this be an early pregnancy sign?

Too soon to know: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

Is constantly hard nipples, and more prominent veins a sign of pregnancy?

Is constantly hard nipples, and more prominent veins a sign of pregnancy?

What will we think?: What can we think of next to worry about? No. The answer is no. First comes conception. Then comes implantation. Then the fetus has to grow big enough to have blood cells and share chemicals with the mother's body. That is about fourteen days or so after conception. Then the body missed a period and the pregnancy takes hold. Please if you have missed a period get tested. If not you must wait. ...Read more

My breast hurt they are getting bigger and my nipple is always point I've had a pregnancy test and it came out negative what could this mean?

Hormonal fluctuation: Always perform bse (breast self examination) and check for lumps or bumps. Breast size and tenerness can be influenced by many factors including female horonal variations; however, you must be examined by a physician. Since you are so young I would not worry- use gentle (gym halter) support bras and see if this is a monthly occurence. In some women breast growth continues into their 20s. ...Read more

I am 19 years old, and am experiencing hard sensitive nipples for the past 2 days. I am on nexplanon implant and haven't had sex since august 19. I took a urine pregnancy test and it was negative. What is going on?? Its quite uncomfortable.

Side effect: Breast pain was listed by 12% of the women in the trials of Nexplanon. You appear to be sensitive to the hormone in this product. I couldn't find a reference of how long to expect this to last so I would speak to your MD soon. Good you took pregnancy test - women on this product more at risk of ectopic pregnancy.

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection.

Last period ended. Feb 13th, I have sore swollen breats hard under both nipples to touch. To early to take a pregnacy test what else could it be?

Based on your last menses, you should be in this time of your cycle when Progesterone levels are high and breasts can respond as you have felt.
