Painful breasts
Hi Doc

My breast are very painful &  tender. It started about a month ago, got better for a week and then started again. I am not pregnant (or could I be? had my periods and on birth control).
Could it just be hormones or what else? I am 27 years old.
Thanks doc

It is possible that your hormones are the cause for your sore breasts. If you are really worried, consult a gynaecologist for a full examination and full hormonal profile to evaluate if anything is abnormal.
