Took plan b during ovulation now I have tender swollen breasts, hungry, emotional, tired, increased discharge and bloated. Did it fail?
Hard to guess: Plan B works regardless of ovulation, or broken condoms, or ejaculations into vaginas. Plan B can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too, so there may be some irregular spotting. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time. ...Read more

I have sore, swollen breasts. Veins poping out all the time, aereola larger than normal. No change during periods. C?
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. They tend to be more pronounced in fair skinned females. Your symptoms may be normal, genetic, hormonal or even related to pregnancy. See your Ob or Vein Specialist. ...Read more

Sex: July 13, period: July 16 (shorter by 2-3 days). it is August 7th now. I have swollen breasts and 2 negative preg tests. Can I be prego still?
Doubtful!: Although we never say never in medicine it would be very unlikely. First, the timing of sex and the period favors no pregnancy. Secondly, home pregnancy tests are very accurate today. The fact that you have had 2 negative tests is very predictive. If no pregnancy is wanted use protection. Good luck and take care. ...Read more

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
