    Sore breasts/pregnancy?

    Asked Nov 21, 2006, 06:36 AM 18 Answers
    I have been having extremely sore breasts and swollen nipples for about a week now. I usually get tender breasts about 5 days before my period but never this early or this severe. Also, my friend told me to pull gentley on the nipple and look for fluid, when I did, a little bit of clear fluid came out! This has never happened before, but I've never really looked for it or pulled on them before. My last period was Nov 1 and my next one is due Nov 28th. My cycle is normal, I'm not on birth control and my husband and I have been trying for a baby this month. I took a highly sensative pregnancy test today but it was negative. It is too early? The test says that it can detect 20 units of the hormone excreted when pregnant. The way I've been feeling for the last week is usually how I feel 5 days before my period. Why am I having these feelings so early before my period? Could I be pregnant and have physical symptoms before a positive pregnancy test? Any help would be great!

    Frozenfeet,

    It is certainly possible that your are pregnant. Breast tenderness is a well recognized symptom of pregnancy as well as nausea and vomiting and urinary frequency, as well as the signs as venous distention in the breasts, gradual darkening of the nipples and areolae, bluish discolouration of the vagina and cervix and increase milky discharge.

    Ovulation occurs 14 days before your next period, in a 28 day cycle that is also 14 days after your last period. According to your dates that means you ovulated on the 14th meaning if you are pregnant it is about 7 days post conception. Most retail pregnancy tests are sensitive to five days after conception so the test should be valid.

    It is possible that the test gave you a false negative, so try again if you are unsure. It is also possible that you are not pregnant and your symptoms are explained by something else.

    Nipple discharge 7 days after conception is not a symptom of pregnancy. You say that this has never happened before but then again have you ever pulled on your nipple to try and make it happen before? If you are concerned about your breast symptoms you must see your Dr.

    Dr Wood.

    Thanks for the info Dr. Wood. I'm not too concerned about the discharge, I'm just going to be patient and take another test on Sunday or Monday. My period isn't due until the 28th. I do have tests from earlypregnancytest.com and I have taken one today which came back negative. I've read about mixed feelings and gotten mixed review of this test strips so I might go and get a test at the local pharmacy. The sympotms that I have been feeling have stayed the same over the last week, I'll be anxious to find out what is going on.

    If it says positive, you're pregnant. Go to your doctor to find out how far along.

    Hi I have been having unprotected sex with my husband since I got off Implanon in Jan 2013. We are usually carefully however lately we have been a little careless.
    I had a period on Oct 11 to Oct 14th. I ovulated on the 23rd, but now my breast are severely sore all around. I do have colostrum coming out when I squeeze the nipple but, I have always had that from when I breast fed. Today is Oct 28th... Could I be pregnant or could it be something else? It is probably to early to have symptoms or is it?

    You have to wait until you get your period, if you haven't gotten in within two weeks of the day you expected it, then take a pregnancy test.

    A lot of the symptoms of pregnancy come a little later in pregnancy and not at the beginning. It will not be, "I concieved, OMG my boobs are sore!!" It will take a few months for that to happen. It is a waiting game for now because the only reliable symptom is a missed period.
