My breast hurt. They've never hurt before. What can it be?!

Question: My breast hurt. They've never hurt before. What can it be.?
I've been on birth control for a year now and I never had any problems other than dizziness and drowsiness. The last month my left breast had been getting sharp pain behind the nipple and I paid no mind, but today I woke up and my right one hurts. I am on my period right now, can it be that.? or what.?Health Question & Answer

Periods or pregnancies are the two most common things that cause breast pain. Since you are currently on your period I'd say that's what it is. If after a few days this pain is still there, you should talk to your doctor. Do you feel any changes in your breasts such as lumps.?Health Question & Answer

It depends on how old you are. If you're in your early teens, it could just be growth--breasts occasionally get sore in the growth spurts that occur during and just after puberty.

If you're an adult and this has never happened before, you should see a gynecologist, just to make sure nothing's wrong (regular check-ups are a good idea anyway, whether something feels wrong or not).Health Question & Answer

Yes periods can cause sore and tender breasts... pregnancy can too but since you're on your period I doubt you're pregnant. You really only need to worry if you find a lump, or hard spot in your breast. Then I would suggest going to a doctor to have it checked out.Health Question & Answer
