Breast Tenderness (Definition)

Your breasts may provide the first signs to you that you are pregnant. Women's breasts often get extremely tender and begin increasing in size very early in pregnancy. These changes are preparing you for breastfeeding. The size may increase throughout the first 3 months of pregnancy. It is important to wear a bra that fits and supports your breasts throughout your pregnancy. Your nipples and areolas (the darker skin around the nipples) will darken early in pregnancy. By weeks 12-14, you may start leaking colostrum from your breasts.

I had last menstrual cycle on february 20, 2014. I am having breast tenderness near armpits and cramps on left side. 4 negative pregnancy tests?

Exam: I think this warrants a physical exam by a physician, either a gynecologist, family medicine doctor or internist. You want to make sure that there are no lumps, swollen lymph nodes or other reasons that could be serious for this breast pain. It's likely due to hormones, but always always check things out when it comes to breast pain. Could be related to cramping, but could also be independent. ...Read more
