Recently, my breasts have been very sore, and my boyfriend said that they've been getting bigger..

Is that normal for a 17 yearold? I thought they stop growing at an earlier age...

And no, i'm not pregnant because i'm on my period right now [Smile]

Also, is it possible to be pregnant but still have your period? A friend asked me this today.. and I had no idea hehe

It's normal for a 17 year old to still be undergoing some of the body changes associated with puberty, yeah. Your breasts might also be sore because of your period.

Having a period means that you're not pregnant. However, sometimes women confuse spotting that can happen in early pregnancy with a period, so if a woman has had a pregnancy risk, it's always a good idea to take a test.
