Sore boobs means no conception occurred this month?

Quick question though to all those who already conceived BB #1.... My boobs usually become sore right after ovulation every month religiously.... & this month I have been carefully charting & taking my prenatal vitamins for my iron deficiency.... does my sore boobs only means that I haven't conceived ?

  • Have you had blood work done? I'm thinking there is something off- I get sore boobs right after ovulation- But I'm in perimenopause- I would see a doctor and get blood work done. You might have some issues going on there!

  • Not necessarily -- sore boobs is an early sign of pregnancy...

  • Well I had blood work done & everything is normal! I'm 19 years old. My doctor said for some females it is normal and its due to your progesterone level increase after ovulation. Thats why I was still wondering if theirs a possibility of conception occurring although my bbs are sore.

  • Sore boobs is a sign of pregnancy

  • It's a sign of pregnancy- UNLESS you have estrogen dominance. Which shouldn't happen if you have normal ovulation patterns. If your boobs are sore right after ovulation- it's unlikely you're pregnant- and you should have your hormone levels checked.

    Trust me, I'm 43 and this only started with me about 2 years ago. In fact, my boobs are huge right now, and I know I'm not pregnant. I know my period is coming.
