I had my period but my breasts are sore and there is visible blue veins on my chest, what might be the cause?

Normal finding: I am amazed about how often I have women ask me about the veins on their breast. Occasionally they are spider veins but mostly they are blue veins. These are almost always normal findings and normal variations of chest veins.
