Breast tenderness is common before, after and during one's period. Breast can also be tender during pregnancy. Tenderness occurs when there is an increase in our female hormones (stress can also be a factor). If you think you may be pregnant, then call your doctor for an evaluation or take pregnancy test from the drug store.
