Sore nipples

I have VERY tender nipples. It started on the last day of my period and is gradually getting worse over the last two days. I am on birth control and my breasts aren't tender. I exercise, eat well, and don't have any of the signs of pregnancy that my mother or grandmother ever had. Nothing else is weird, it's just that it started getting sore before the end of my period and I haven't ovulated yet. I still have two more weeks until my period starts, but I really don't think I'm pregnant.

You're on birth control, and haven't ovulated yet...what kind of birth control is that?  Generally, the breasts and nipples get sore in response to estrogen.

Springtec. I've taken it for 8 months now and haven't had any problems like this before. I mean I haven't ovulated because I shouldn't until next week or so I think. Could this be a sign of pregnancy?

OK, I'm confused.  Springtec is, as I understand it, a birth-control pill.  You shouldn't ovulate on a birth-control pill.  In fact, that is the whole point of birth-control pills.  

My guess is that your breasts have gotten sensitive to the estrogen in your pill, but I'm at a loss about your ovulation statement.
