Breast pain immediately following ovulation implies no pregnancy?


This is not addressed to the women who have no breast pain or whatever after ovulation. This is more of a question about myself, and women who also experience this, and maybe they could share a story or add something that may be seen as informative and useful to me or other women wondering the same thing.

So every month right after ovulation I get sore and swollen breasts, and this last until I get my period. When my breast are no longer sore, I know my period will come within a few hours or the next day for sure.

So now every time after ovulation when my breast get sore and swollen, I figure I didnt get pregnant, and I will have to try again. It makes me very sad. I know that sore swollen breast are an early pregnancy sign for some women, but I read a couple posts on a forum- not a baby forum like this one, but just one where you can ask any type of question - where one woman said she always had sore breast after ovulation, then when she actually was pregnant, she didnt get sore breasts until 2 weeks after ovulation. Another woman had the same experience - no sore breasts which was unusual, and then she was pregnant that month.

Is this common among other women? If so, do you know what would cause this? Like is there a way that our bodies can somehow tell that the egg hass disintegrated, so it starts producing hormones to shed the lining etc, and those hormones is what causes breast soreness and swelling?

And why would those women not have breast swelling and soreness for weeks if the egg had been fertilized? What I am thinking is that the hormones that cause our period is what makes breast swollen etc right after ovulation, and the hcg is what causes breast to be swollen right after implantation.

So basically what I am asking is: Is my body telling me that I did NOT conceive right after ovulation hence the sore breasts etc? Perhaps if so I will not drive myself insane during the 2ww.

I hope this question makes sense. Would love to hear what you ladies have to sa

That is me exactly. The first time we conceived (the miscarriage) they didn't get sore until 8 DPO. So when I conceived this time I thought I was out because they were sore right away. Nope. :-)

One thing I have figured out, is if it is different it's probably a sign. I got different symptoms with the chemical, the miscarriage and this time. But if it was different, ie I got hiccups A LOT this time and I hardly ever get them normally, so I believe that was a sign/symptom. I burped a lot unexpectedly with the last one, again not normal and therefore a sign/symptom :-) Hope this helps.

So, Vaurissa, so you know what I mean and understand exactly what it is I am asking. That makes me feel a lot better that someone is understanding me

So what you are saying is, you thought you werent pregnant because you had sore breasts right away, and then it turned out that you were? Did you have sore breasts right after ovulation or a day or so after? Like what is normal for you is what I am trying to say I guess

This is an interesting question because I have slightly tender nipples after ovulation and I have sore breasts a few days before AF. It's not extremely painful, just a little noticeable.

So, say I conceive this month, would NO sore breasts/nipples be a sign to look for or would EXTREMELY sore breasts/nipples be a sign? Since my normal cycle symptoms are only slightly sore..? I've definitely had sore breasts here and there, but nothing like what I hear happens during pregnancy.

Thanks for the question Whimesy- I've been wondering about this but looking for a way to word it! Sorry I'm not much help with answering it, though!

Yes I thought I was out because they hurt within 24 to 48 hours which was typical for me with a period cycle.

My nipples were a little more sensitive, but hardly noticeable and after a while, the pain moved to the sides of my boobs... that was a little different. LOL

I understand exactly what you mean, Ash. Its frustrating too because women who do not experience this will not understand what we are talking about, so the question wont make sense to them at all.

Hey it says you are on day 10 of a 29 day cycle. My cycle is usually 27 days (but a few times a year it is 30), and I am on cycle day 11. We should be ttc buddies

Ah I see, so there was a slight difference. Its good that you noticed that though even though it was small. Thanks for answering

I would love a buddy!!
I'm new to BnB and this is my first cycle ttc! Do you temp or use Opks? I don't use anything yet since I'm just starting and trying to remain as calm as possible about it all.
I'm on CD 10, and my cycle is averages 28-32 days. I don't know exactly what day I'm going to ovulate on, but to cover my bases I'll need to BD on Sept. 11-20!! Thats a lot of BDing!!
Do you know what day you're going to ovulate on?

Yippeee I am so happy to have a buddy, I made a post yesterday looking for one, but nothing.

I too am fairly new to baby and bump. My first thread was in May of this year, and that was just me asking what vitamins I should take while ttc. This too is my first cycle of actually TTC. I guess last month I was kinda trying, but hadnt really did the correct timing etc. This month I had a talk with my boy friend, and now he knows whats up, like we only have a certain time etc lol.

Before this, I had not exactly been "trying" but I wasn't preventing. I had been over a span of 16 months, & 5 or 6 of those months I didnt BD, so I can count those out. So I guess for 10 I wasnt preventing, I was just having sex all the time. But I did nothing such as taking vitamins, I didnt stay down after sex etc etc.. you know what I mean.. Not trying but not preventing.

Well I figured since out of about 10 of those months that I was not preventing and still didnt get pregnant, I ought to take a more serious approach to it. I did a fertility cleanse kit in June, and July I didnt really BD.. Last month I tried kinda & took some soy isoflavones for a little luck, but as I already said, I dont think we had the timing right.

So this month/cycle will be my first time actually trying. I do not know when I ovulate. Temping would not work out for me as I am never awake at the same time do to my job, and OPK's just seem like they would stress me out even more. Not something I wanna try as of yet.

Since my cycle is usually 27 days, but could possibly be 30, I am going to try baby dancing from today (already did today), all the way until next Saturday, and that should cover it in case I do have a 30 day cycle...

Are you taking any vitamins etc? I took soy isoflavones from cycle day 2-6, and I have been taking prenatal vitamins (the chewy kind..quite good actually), the folic acid, a b6 vitamin and I am taking cough syrup with 200mg of guaifenesin in it for thinner cervical mucous. I noticed a little bit of cervical mucous yesterday.. Have you noticed any?

I happen to get swollen breats 5 DPO, And shooting pain/tingling pain in my breast right right after ovualtion. And, I don't ever get a BFP with it. Sucks, too. Because with my daughters the only sign I had was shooting pains in breasts as well as soreness. But, with my son I had just the morning sickness. But, Now I always get these pains/soreness right after O.
