Why do my breasts feel tender a week after my cycle?

Estrogen. But...

Menses
Sore breasts after your period relates to your body producing estrogen. But, if you have abnormal breast tenderness before, during or after your cycle then you may be producing too little progesterone or too much estrogen. Since you are obviously concerned and this is not normal for you, the best advice for you is to schedule an appointment with your gynecologist soon.

Why do my breasts hurt all the time? Sore, like engorged but i haven't nursed in over a year. they feel like someone punched my boobs! Is it a cycle thing?

Cyclic?

Sore
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.

Had a hyst 9/11/13. ovaries remain. my breasts are tender and I feel really emotional..what could this be??

hormonal imbalance

I would suggest you have your hormone levels checked. Make sure you ask for an extensive panel. I have had GREAT results with patients with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy via pellet insertion. Please visit us at www.doctorscotts.com for more info. Being emotional can be one of the manifestations of hormonal imbalance!

Is it normal for your breasts to feel tender and to hav them abnormally big?like really big?

Hormonal?

Hepatitis_a
Sounds like either premenstrual or early pregnancy symptoms. Why not take a pregnancy test if that is a risk. If the symptoms don't go away and you are not pregnant call your doctor.

Is it normal for my breasts to feel tender once I start birth control?

Likely yes

Birth_control_pills
Birth control pills contain estrogen and progesterone. These hormones are active on breast tissue, so your symptoms are very common. You can always ask you OB-GYN or PCP if you remain concerned. Best wishes.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

Ive heard its possible for some to have tender breasts the day of conception? is this true cause i feel that way

Yes, but unrelated

Breast_development
A woman can have tender breasts the day of conception. She can just as easily have tender breasts the day before conception or the day after conception. The reason is because the conception that just happened does not cause tender breasts that day. Also, her body has no idea that conception has occurred that day. Her body won't know about the conception until a week or so later.
