Question.. maybe a little TMI

So for the past couple days I have been experiencing breast pain, and they haven't been as swollen as they are today. I have very small breasts so I notice when they swell and feel tender. I honestly don't remember this being one of my symptoms before aunty flow. I have cut out caffine completely, drinking water, and juice. Eating healthy, (before when I drank a lot of soda and ate unhealthy foods before my period I'd swell up like a balloon!)

I'm just not sure if swollen tender breasts are actual symptoms of PMS or not... If I'm pregnant, I'm pregnant. But I just want to know if any of you ladies have had this problem before, just so I feel like I'm not alone and if I should go get a pregnancy test or not.


thanks,

Katie.

Tender, swollen breast can absolutely be a sign of your period... Even if it's never been one before.

Okay! anytime something is swollen and hurts I get a little concerned! Thank you for your response! :)

Yes it can be a sign of starting your period soon. Not to scare you but it can also be a sign of being pregnant as well.

My first thought was a clogged duct, but if your not breastfeeding that wouldn't apply :)

The only time my boobs hurt is when I was pregnant.  I would go and get a test just ease your mind.....

Every once in a whole, I will get extreme/wonky pms symptoms that I rarely get.

yeah, sometimes i get sore boobs before my period. But not every time. Just like sometimes i will get bloated or tired before my period, but not always. I would just wait a week and see if your period starts, if not, take a test. Although, if you are anything like me, you will be late and wait and then day after you take the test and it shows up negative you get your period. seriously. i may as well just flush dollar bills down the toilet!

Yes, it's a symptom of pms and well as pregnancy and some other things.
