What's your question: If you're wondering if you can be pregnant, best way to answer question is to take home pregnancy test. They're inexpensive, accurate & available w/o prescription. Of note, I assume you had sex w/o protection. Regardless of test results, go see your Family Doc, OB or Planned Parenthood for prenatal care or birth control. Don't forget screening for sexually transmitted diseases/infections too. ...Read more

Unusual sore breasts each month after ovulation for 2 weeks after abortion of twins 9 months ago? ttc is everything ok? also get palpatations dizzines

Can be normal: Breast tenderness before your period is normal. Premenstrual symptoms can change with time & increase or decrease from period to period depending on age, diet, emotional & physical factors. It is not related to your abortion directly, although emotional issues can increase premenstrual symptoms. Here is a good info sheet on mastalgia (breast pain) during your cycle:

Hormonal changes: It is possible for women, especially young women to develop breast tenderness and ovarian/uterine cramping due to hormonal changes, despite your menstrual calendar suggesting you are not about to ovulate or menstruate. I recommend treating these symptoms the same - ibuprofen or naproxen, moist heat on pelvis, sports bra or no bra, and limiting caffeine. Take care! ...Read more

HELP PLEASE! got my period this month, lasted 2 days and a week later i still have sore breasts and pain in my left ovary. ovulating? can't be pregs .

Sore Breasts: Sore breasts can have many causes other than pregnancy. Excessive caffeine and salt can both contribute to tenderness. Tenderness is also commonly experienced in the second half of the cycle due to progesterone. Pain in an ovary can be associated with ovulation or with a corpus luteum cyst that forms after ovulation. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Taking oral progesterone due to 2 miscarriages. Last period on 7/6. Ovulated & started progesterone 7/24. Sense of smell very strong and sore breasts?

Taking oral progesterone due to 2 miscarriages. Last period on 7/6. Ovulated & started progesterone 7/24. Sense of smell very strong and sore breasts?

Ouch!: The symptoms you are experiencing are likely d/t the Progesterone- remember the breast swelling just before your period? Prog levels are highest then; and that is part of it's function, to also enrich the uterus to sustain pregnancy. First, let me empathize, my wife took Prog to maintain her pregnancy (our only one!) Also, you may get pregnant underneath this, so much the better! Good Luck! ...Read more
