Can anyone offer advice????? I wrote earlier this week about only one breast hurting and while it doesn't hurt as bad anymore, it is still WAY more tender than the other one.  Well, I keep spontaneously getting this shooting pain across the same painful breast and then it goes away. I have no idea what is causing this pain and the fact that it is so quick and fleeting is confusing. If I had it in both I would think that perhaps I AM preggo but I only have it in the right breast.
Have any of you experienced anything similar to this? What do you think it could be?

Yea, Wear a sports bra, and take a tylenol. it's safe during pregnancy. it's normal. and I've had them when I wasn't preggo, just when I was PMS'ing and everything was swelling up a little.

Where are you on AF/DPO?

Today I'm 8 days away from the great AF, and about 7 or 8 dpo. I'm beginning to think I'm really not preggo, based on "womens intuition" but I'm still wondering why the hell I have one sore breast WITH shooting pains. Perhaps too much estrogen. I turn my saliva test in when AF starts so hopefully I'll have some answers soon!

Why a saliva test?  What does that do?

Saliva test is more thorough than blood tests AND it allows for the lab to check individual hormone levels throughout the ENTIRE cycle instead of just a one time thing like with a blood test.
We're looking for a hormone imbalance and the more I read, the more I'm thinking that I have an estrogen dominance issue and probably have for a while! I just haven't EVER had only one extrememly sore breast so I'm thining, what the hell???
