Montgomery's Tubercles
Hi Everyone,

I have severe breast tenderness, the M.Ts on my areolas are more prominent. When I say severe I mean really painful, like before menses but only worse. This all started on the last day of my last period. I have had sore breasts for about two weeks now but I dont know whether to take a preg test or if there is something else wrong with me. I have a regular 27 day cycle and usually my breasts become tender about 5 days before my period but never the last days of my period and steadily worsen. Also I have period like cramps also for about a week now, like I would get a period again!

Please help and thank you for your time

If you had a normal period, pregnancy is unlikely. Possible causes are a hormone disturbance or a cyst.
