Tender breasts: Ofter women wear bras that are too small. You may have gained weight and stuck with your old cup size. Hormonal conditions and salt consumption may aggravate these symptoms.

Not sure: This could be a side effect of a medication. It may be due to hormonal changes. Please see your physician or gynecologist for further assessment. ...Read more

My breast are sore all the time. Has been for a year.  What could cause this?

See your doctor: It is not uncommon to experience sore breast, but if this has persisted greater than a year, you will need to see your doctor. Soreness can be caused by some medication, certain things in the diet, changes in your weight, health problems, or potentially serious breast concerns, like breast cancer. Your doctor can review your history to help rule out these causes and offer treatment. ...Read more

This is the second time of ovulation that my breasts are very sore and hot. I never used to get that symptom. Why am i suddenly getting this?

Ovulation breast: At the time of ovulation there is a surge in luteinizing hormone, commonly known as lh surge. Associated with this is an increase in production of progesterone, one of the two main hormones made by your ovary. Progesterone is thermogenic usually at higher levels than during your cycle but with breast tenderness which is not uncommon the sensation of warmth is possible. ...Read more

Cyclic?: It could be cyclic if it occurs prior to your period or with it. Women often retain fluids at those times. This stretches the breast & causes pain. ...Read more

My breasts get sore during my time of the month, but i'm no where near due and it's just my nipples are randomly horribly sore, and a bit bloody. Why?

My breasts get sore during my time of the month, but i'm no where near due and it's just my nipples are randomly horribly sore, and a bit bloody. Why?

Many possible causes: Mastodynia, breast pain could result from dilated ducts and low grade inflammation. Low caffiene, avoid smoking, evening primrose oil (herbal therapy) and proper rest can help. An ultrasound and visit with a breast surgeon can evaluate for a pappilloma that can cause bleeding nipples, but you must rule out a more serious cause. ...Read more

My breast are sore on the outer part and ive noticed for the first time after intercorse only the seman was a lite pink what could that mean?

Unrelated: breast soreness can come and go depending on your cycle, so this would not worry me. Having a little bit of pink semen may indicate its mixture with blood which may have resulted from pressure on the cervix. As long as you are up to date on pap smears this should not be worrisome unless it persists. ...Read more

Had a very light 6 day period breasts are larger not sore using the toilet more feeling sick all the time tired alit, done test says no?

Not sure of reason: The main reason for light periods is a change in hormone levels. Causes for what seems to be a light period can include: thyroid problems, eating disorders, excessive exercise, initial periods for a girl, use of an intrauterine device, oral contraceptives, perimenopause ; implantation bleeding in early pregnancy which rarely occurs. ...Read more
