Why are my breasts still sore? I'm on bcp and I just got off my period

Side effects

Menstrual_cycle
Breast tenderness on BCP is common especially after restarting the active pills right after a menstrual period. Breast tenderness is usually a reaction to estrogen, and the type of estrogen in BCP is much stronger than what your body makes in order for the BCP to work properly. Breast tenderness is variable and may respond to a lower dose estrogen BCP.

8 days after a light period which was 8 days late my breasts are still swollen an very sore, cramping/aching . can't be pregnant as two tests thevday after period was due were negative but why my breasts so big an sore after my period?

Fibrocystic

Menses
If you have fibrocystic breasts you may have swelling during your period. That can cause discomfort. Avoid caffeine because it causes worsening of fibrocystic disease.

Dr. Kenan Omurtag answered:

3 days after period breasts are still sore. Why?

Likely related to

Sore
your cycle. breast soreness that is bilaterall (both breasts hurt equally) is less concerning than unilateral breast pain. Talk to your OBGYN but the best thing is to make sure you use approrpirate suppor garments. Tylenol and or motrin are helpful.

Dr. Jane Van Dis answered:

My breasts are very sore, I had a period 2 weeks ago! why iis the tenderness still there?

Hormones

Sore
Often sore breasts are due to hormonal changes. Being on birth control can cause, gaining weight can cause, as can wearing an ill fitting bra or one without enough support. If you feel a mass or lump, be sure to go to the doctor for an exam. Otherwise, you can take some ibuprofen, stop drinking caffeine and see if those 2 things help. Good LUck!

Neg hpt, period over a week ago lasted only 2 days but breasts are still sore, could I be pregnant?

Trust the test

Pregnancy
Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection.

Had my period but still got sore back and heavy and tender breasts will this last until my next period?

Period symptoms

Menstrual_cycle
Not sure if the symptoms are caused by your period. Make sure you are not pregnant by chance. Also, there may have been a superimposing of a viral illness and both obviously have the same presentation. I would not worry too much but wait and see what happens next.

Missed period sore breasts and fatigue negative doctor urination test is it still possible im pregnant?

Still possible

Micturition
You should have a blood test to be 100% certain that you are not pregnant. It is more accurate than the urine test. If that is negative have a work up for another cause.

Dr. Lonna Larsh answered:

my period was 4 days late and my breasts are tingly and sore. hpt was negative . could i still be pregnant.?

Possible

Menstrual_cycle
but not likely. Your breasts are probably sore because you are about to start your period. However, home pregnancy tests are not 100% accurate. If you still haven't started your period in the next couple days, so another test.

why 4 days after period which was light, red blood an lasted 3days do i have still sore swollen breasts an cramping?

Pregnancy?

Menstrual_cycle
Pregnancy is always a possibility. Obtain a home pregnancy test. They become positive at about the time you're ready to start your next expected period. If i's negative, repeat in a week and call your doctor.

It could be pregnancy but the only way to be certain is to do a pregnancy test which you can do at home.
