Hi! I'm 17 and for the past week my breasts have been in a lot of pain. I don't believe it has to do with my period because my cycle ended a few days before it started and I usually have a longer amount of time between periods than average.
Here's some facts that might help:
-I am a virgin, so pregnancy is not an option.
-I wear sports bras nearly everyday.
-I do not drink caffine or eat a lot of salt
-I am not over weight or unhealthy, I do just the right amount of excercise.
-As far as I know, I am not under a lot of stress.
-I have slightly larger breasts than most girls my age.
-I am taking a medication that slows my heart rate but I doubt that can cause breats pain as intense as this.
-I know that for half of my family, there is no history of breast issues.
-It hurts all around the breasts, but on one breast, there is a slightly 'harder' part(and most painful part) on the top and on the other breast it has the same thing but on the bottom and to the side a bit.
I know for a fact this isn't about my cycle. I have those pains two days before I start and it's over the minute my cycle starts. And the tenderness is hardly recognizable. The pain I'm feeling now is overwhelming, and it's gotten to the point where I began to cry... multiple times. And I am not the type that crys out of pain on a usual basis.
Sorry, if some of the information seems weird to put online, but I figured that the more information the better.
