Over a week ago just out of nowhere my areola started hurting first it was just my right but then both. Even just wearing a bra can make them hurt when moving around. On top of that my breasts seem to have gotten slightly bigger almost like they've swelled a bit and are a little firmer. I have no complaints there but I would like to know if it's something I should be concerned about. My breasts used to be bigger and then I lost weight so maybe that could be relevant.

It's just weird since I have not gained any weight and I've been taking the same birth control pills for over a year, also I'm in between menstrual cycles and I know usually these symptoms are before mestruation but never have been for me. I'm 19 yrs old in case it matters.

  • Hi lady_snowI'm no expert, but that sounds like symptoms of pregnancy... You might want to grab a test or two from the pharmacy and check it out.Best,paul

  • What you are describing has happend to me many times over the years. I have put it down to hormones. As long as you have no other symptoms and both your breasts are bothering you then there is no need to worry. If it doesn't go away after your next period, then you should talk to your doctor about it. Kiera

  • Not missing a pill doesn't mean anything. You can still get pregnat. You have sore nipples and I think you need to see your doctor. ASAP It could be a nipple infection or pregnancy Hey it happens!
