Hey, well approximately at the end of december my girlfriend breasts seemed to be sore all the time and when the time for her period to come in January nothing came...Well not the usual just a smear of blood on a tampon kind of period...very very light...i posted on here awhile ago and they said it happens so i took pregnancy off the list. However, her breasts still were sore and getting darker...in February we double checked with a pregnancy test it said negative and we tried again a week later same result. At the end of February she got a very heavy period that lasted 7 days of heavy bleeding and then lightened up...and this month she had a normal period like heavy first 2-3 days then lightened off...however, her breasts have become bigger and darker especially the aerolas and nipples. I don't know if she's pregnant or not or what could be causing her breasts to change...she's only 19 years of age...One thing that might be affecting I think is that she is training to become a nurse and is doing maturity this semester and is around babies a lot... Maybe that's what causing all the changes?
Just wondering if you guys think she's pregnant or some other issue?

Your girlfriend cannot be pregnant and have a normal period at the same time, so you can rule out pregnancy.
Someone else on Scarleteen may know more about the physical effects (or lack there of) of non-biological babies on women. Breasts are generally done growing around her age (they likely change as she ages) so I doubt that is a possibility.
She can always visit with her doctor if it is bothering her!
