I've been on a lot of other sites where people have been saying that their nipples/breasts are more tender around the time of their period. But I'm like you, my NIPPLES get EXTREMELY tender around the time I ovulate and go away a few days after I ovulate. I get very tender and sore BREASTS when I get my period, but the only thing that gets tender during ovulation are my actual nipples, not even the areola...very weird. It happens without fail every month when I ovualte- and I know I'm ovulating b/c I'm tracking my temperatures and doing OPK's. But I guess it's normal :) I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you're normal too!
