Hello there. A approaching period can cause sore breasts and nipples so can any number of things from clothes or bra rubbing your breasts to early pregnancy symptoms and too much progesterone in your blood, hormonal problems, ovulating and being on birth control.
That can be caused by anything from hormonal changes to an allergy to laundry soap or body wash. If the pain is severe or bothersome, however, please contact a medical professional. ~ T
Nursing. Many times, a new mother can experience sore nipples just from nursing her newborn every two hours.
Your nipple will also sore due to the hormonal change in your body.
Being on the contraceptive pill has its side effects, sore nipples being one of them... it messes your hormones up for a while until you get used to it. This could be a reason?!
AnswerIf it comes and goes you may realize that it only happens before, during, or a little after your period. Also, you may be pregnant. If you are a teenager or young adult it is probably because your breasts are still developing. All of this is perfectly natural and is supposed to happen. If none of this applies to you and you find no other cause, you should go to the doctor ASAP and request a mammogram. Contrary to what is talked about, it is possible for even young people to develop a tumor or possibly even cancer in their breasts. It may just be a hormonal issue your doctor can treat.
They become sore due to the changes going on within your breast - the production of milk.
