Hi scarleteen,

I've been worried about pregnancy recently because my breasts have been constantly sore, veiny and have grown considerably in the past month. I have reassured myself that I am not pregnant but today I looked at my breasts to find the veinyness had increased considerably, with smaller veins leading into the nipple. I have read this is a leading sign of pregnancy so I freaked out and bought a test, came out negative so I'm thinking the changes of pregnancy are extremely low now. But why are my breasts doing this? Never happened before and so worried- please help!

The first symptom of pregnancy will be a missed period. Have you had a pregnancy risk?

Hi Samantha,

In your last post, Heather mentioned that at your age, changes to breasts will still be very common; that still applies here: http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/ultimatebb.php?/ubb/get_topic/f/28/t/007466/p/1.html#000003

I'm meant to have had my period at the moment and it hasn't come yet. Mostly dry sex and manual sex which I understand poses no risk, but I have possibly had a risk with slight genital contact? Thanks, I'm just worries as it has lasted a long time and I have been lethargic and lightheaded too

It's very common and normal for menstrual cycles to deviate by a few days sometimes.

I'm not sure what you mean by "slight" genital contact. If you had direct genital-to-genital contact, then there are possible pregnancy risks. If you didn't, and no one ejaculated onto your vulva or very near it, like on your anus, then there would not have been.

Thanks:) I was unsure at the time as in your articles you mention garments that can move like thongs etc which made me think there could have been slight genital contact but I'm sure now there was no contact therefore I'm hoping theres no pregnancy risk

When we talk about pregnancy risks, again and again we emphasize direct contact. By all means, if someone is wearing a garment that does not actually cover mother genitals at all or in any real way, like something that basically outs a piece of floss over a millimeter of their vulva, then we are not really talking about someone being dressed anymore.
