Burning Nipples and Pregancy

I have been burning in my nipples for about two weeks and I now just got my period. Is burning nipples apart for pregancy?

It can be a symptom........but if you have your period it dosen't sound likely. Who knows some women have a light period through pregancy. i would ge it checked out

I am confused because I have never had any kind of problems with my breast. I usually don't hurt or burn at all. This is the first for me.

Is there any discharge coming from your breasts? Put your mind at ease and go to the dr. Let us know how it goes.

Well since I got my PMS on monday night I haven't been burning, just feel tender.

Are you sure it is not PMS??? I never used to have breast pain and started getting it about 4 months ago before my period arrives.

You could very well just be producing extra hormones this month which could cause burning and/or breast tenderness.  You said you are having our period, I do not believe you are pregnant.  If the burning/tenderness does not improve after your period is done, then call your gyn or dr.  and see what they suggest.

Has anybody out here experienced what I am talking about or am I just going crazy?

I hope i didn't scare you sweetie. I always think it's better to be safe than sorry. I have never experienced this before

You are not going crazy.  Last cycle I just KNEW I was pregnant b/c there were a couple of times when I got this shooting pain just in my nipples.  Well, AF still arrived.  I often get tender breast before AF, but never the shooting pain in my nipples.  Now I just get to add that to my list of could-be-pregnancy-could-be-PMS symptoms.  It stinks, I know. Just keep trying!

No discharge they just feel really tender. They kind of feel like   something is pulling in up to the nipple.

Hi ladies, I got my AF on Jan. 31st I had sex with my husband on Feb, 12,13 and 15th. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it came back negative, according to my ovulation chart we were RIGHT ON TIME!!! Could I have tested too soon? I know EPT says they can detect as soon as 4 days before you next AF, for me I am due to come on On Feb. 28th, but I took a urine test at a clinic is there test better than an EPT? HELPPPPPPPPP

I have breast pain, but not really in the nipples. I didn't develop nipple pain until later in my previous pgs, but a few months ago my PMS symptoms started really mimicking pg symptoms, right down to the breast pain, nausea, fatigue, etc. Had i gone by my symptoms, I would still be waiting for af. Nature can be cruel.

I agree with the previous poster, the only way to know is to take a test. If it is neg and the pain continues, I also recommend making an appt to see your doctor.

I am not sure if you ladies can help. But I had a miscarriage in December, 6 weeks later i had a period well now 5 weeks later nothing. I went to the doctor a week ago and he said that I should start anyday but if i haven't in 2 weeks come back. they also did blood work then too and all was negative. My question is, is this normal and is there a possibility that i am indeed pregnant and it is just to soon. Thanks for all advice.

P.S. sorry for posting here

Don't feel stupid, everyone has to learn the acronyms from somewhere.  It might as well be here, right?  :)

Are you kidding, I was here for 6 months before i found out what it meant!! I was so shy about it, I never did ask. SOmeone finally listed the acronyms for the group and I felt so silly for not asking!

Here's a link that I saved in my favorites from another thread a few months ago.  I still go to it when I'm confused about what an abbreviation stands for:

Thank you all for your advice and opinions. Would also like to add how much I want a baby. I just feel like there is an empty spot in my life and my heart. I just got engaged on Valentine's to a wonderful man I have been friends with for years. I am also recently divorced from a marriage that was doomed to fail from the beginning. Now I feel that I have found my soulmate. He wants children too. We have been VERY active and so far we think a couple of months ago we got PG but I had a light period and then I got checked and they said it was very possible that I M/C.

Be patient, I know it is easier said than done. Keep up your "activity level" and in time it will happen.

When's the big day? (wedding)

on my 2nd pregnancy, i was 2 weeks late and still didnt' have a distinctive line.  the dr's test (urine, just like a hpt) was 2 big lines.  i dont know...wait a couple more days, look out for af and test again.  use first morning urine.  if af, is a no show, and hpt is still neg.  then see your dr. for a blood test.  good luck to you!

The reason I think it's a possibilty is b/c I have had three people tell me that that is what they experienced when they were pregant. Any advice?
Blank

Before my m/c I had some breast pain during pms but it is totally different since the m/c.  I have shooting pains and much more tenderness.  Have you recently had a m/c or baby?  I know those pregnancy hormones do a number on your body and can take a while to readjust.  I would contact a doc if it doesn't stop soon, but try not to worry.

To be blunt and straightforward, take a test or go to the doctor. I get the burning/tender nipple thing with all 3 of my PGs and it stays as a symptom the whole 1st trimester and I also have it as a pms symptom every few months and it last for about 3 days. Good luck.

My nipples burn when I am pregnant.  Not so tender just a strong burning sensation especially in the mornings.

Hi! Sorry it took me so long to get back with you. I was doing that burning nipples thing and then on Tuesday Feb. 21st I got my period. Well I usually only have a 3 or 4 day period. Well I went for 6 days this time. It kept acting like it was going to stop but then I would start again. I am NOT having the burning anymore but my nipples are still tender. Did your nipples look brown around the nipple and light pink/red in the center of the nipple?

Has anyone had breast pain similiar to pre menstruation and then had it go away but was pregnant?  I am 37 days into my cycle and still no period.  I was wondering if my breasts could hurt then stop and then begin getting sore once again?  
Thanks!
