My breasts are really tender. I know they get a little bit tender during your period. But, do they get tender when your pregnant?
This has been going on for about 3 days, and i'm not sure if it's just my period or not b/c it has become quite irregular. Can you help me?

Breast tenderness is not a good way to tell if you're pregnant. If you think you may be pregnant, then go take a test, that's the only way to know for sure.

And as far as irregular periods go, you period will most likely be irregular for the first 5 years or so while your body adjusts. Talk to your doctor about it if you're worried.

Breasts CAN get tender when you're pregnant, but they also can be tender for any other number of reasons. Having tender breasts does not meant that you are pregnant. If you are worried that you might be pregnant, take a pregnancy test. If the tenderness desn't go away in a week or so, ask your doctor.

My get tender too right around me period time. That usually how I know if I'm going to get it or not. Like everyone else said, if you feel you are preg, take the test or go to the Gyno, thats the only way you will know for sure.
