Why do my nipples itch and why do my breast hurt very bad?? Please help... could I be pregnant?
My nipples and the area around my nipples started itching about 4 days ago.. my breast are also hurting as well. My breast are very tender and if my fiance touches them even alittle they hurt very bad. I have been trying to get pregnant for about 7 months now and nothing yet. Can the itching be caused by pregnancy? Im suppose to start my period on the 3rd or 4th of January. My period cycle is 29 days and the first days of my last period was December 5th. When I was ovulating we had sex the whole time all the other times we were trying we really didn't. Could I be pregnant??? Please help.
I also have pressure on the right side of my stomach.
Yes, pregnancy can cause the breast to become tender and itch. However its too early to diagnose by conventional urine test. A vaginal sonography will help you confirm pregnancy.
However the itch could be due to dermatitis, Paget’s disease of the breast, or eczema. We have a similar discussion on MedHelp which you can read: http://www.medhelp.org/forums/BreastCancer/messages/3934.html
Fibroadenosis of breast should also be looked into. Cancer of the breast or duct too iis a possibility.
It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. Please discuss this with your doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
