In brief: Breast Symptoms

Breast sensations are not about begin pregnant.
They are about the sensitivity to varying hormone levels. Young women have frequent and significant hormone fluctuations around their period. Do you have sisters or girlfriends to discuss this with. The females in your life can help you realize you are most likely just fine and normal.

In brief: Breast tenderness

You can get breast tenderness due to the hormonal changes that occur when the levels drop.
It may also happen when taking birth control pills or with other hormonal changes as well. Pregnancy causes those changes.
