Anyone get sore boobs immediately after ovulation??

Hello. I had a mmc in Sept at 10 weeks. We've been ttc ever since with no luck.

Since the mc I've had sore boobs every month after ovulation. The pain is to the sides and underneath (almost where the underwire is).

What I really wanted to know is if anyone else gets this and whether it's a sign of a hormonal imbalance?

Thank you!

I didn't think it was possible but I started getting sore boobs around 3dpo so I hope this is a good sign! I read a couple of posts from pregnant women that they got sore boobs really early and got their bfp!

Oh I hope it is for you!

It hasn't been for me sadly (although it was my first indication of my mc pregnancy, so if it's not usual it could be a good sign!)

Possibly just another way my body has chosen to let me down! (not at,all feeling sorry for myself!!)

Yes I get sore nipples!

I do.. it;s one of the ways I know i've ovulated that month (I don't every month). No chance of pregnancy for me though so can't link it to that.

Hi Luckystar.

I also had a mmc in September. prior to the miscarriage the only time my nipples were sore was the few days before AF. Since the mmc it starts immediately after ovulation which is a bummer as it was the first signal I was pregnant if my nipples were sore more than a few days before af. . I don't know if it is a hormone imbalance. On the last cycle I took vitamin b6 and vitamin b complex and vitamin c. During that cycle my pre af spotting stopped and my luteal phase increased by 2 days. This cycle ovulation was a day earlier again but as I am in 2ww I don't know what my luteal phase will be.

Look at all us booby ladies!!

boo us shit isn't it. I assumed I'd get pregnant almost immediately!!! Wrong!

I took b6 this cycle too and I'm also in 2ww but I'm not holding out much hope tbh.

I actually have gone privately to a gyno and I'm getting bloods done for progesterone,so it'll be interesting to see if it seems to be linked.

Fx for you this month!

With my two pregnancies I didn't get my usual sore boobs after ovulation. It only kicked in towards the time my period was due.

Funny how we're all different. Wishing you the best of luck :-)

Luckystar1 Tue 28-Jan-14 14:33:16

toothy if you don't mind me asking, did you have any difficulties conceiving?

Toothygrin Tue 28-Jan-14 14:46:35

No, none at all - quite the opposite. I've researched fertility stuff quite a bit, though, and from what I can gather there don't seem to be any rules. I think if something's unusual for you it's worth checking out, but because our bodies all seem to be so different, it's hard to compare between women.

Hopefully your gyno will be able to shed some light.

Luckystar1 Tue 28-Jan-14 14:53:36

Great thanks. Yes it's so true. The body is a minefield of annoyances!!

Bumpforme2014 Tue 28-Jan-14 21:24:06

I do I do and it gets worse until AF comes. Currently waiting for AF and they feel so heavy like bricks stuck on my chest and cannot lie on my front, never knew it could get this bad, not been off pill long so forgot what it feels like.

Luckystar1 Tue 28-Jan-14 21:36:38

Me too bump! The pain just radiates up the sides to my armpit! Joy of joys eh!!

Love your name by the way! I hope it's true for us all!

Bumpforme2014 Tue 28-Jan-14 22:05:36

Thanks luckystar I am determined to be preggars this year, I've waited all my life for a baby!! My pain is all over the breast but nothing on nipple. I read pain at sides of breasts are common in ovulation but not sure if them feeling heavy and sore all over is normal or not for me to be honest I just know I feel huge! Lol

Bumpforme2014 Tue 28-Jan-14 22:07:32

Oh and sorry to hear about your mc at ten weeks, must have been so difficult for you :-(.

Bumpforme2014 Tue 28-Jan-14 22:11:29

Oh and can I just say another thing coz what you said about your body letting you down made me sad, it wasn't your body letting you down it was the opposite - your body saying it wasn't right this time, next time will be the one. I know this offers no comfort and I don't know what it's like to go through it but I just felt need to make you see your body is as capable as any other woman and don't ever think otherwise :-) x

Luckystar1 Wed 29-Jan-14 07:38:09

Aww bump, that's very sweet, thank you. You are right of course, I just wish I could get my bfp and for it all to be ok. It has somewhat dampened pregnancy for me.

But onwards and upwards. Your boob situation sounds promising! Sore boobs was my (and many others) first sign of pregnancy. How many dpo are you?

Bumpforme2014 Wed 29-Jan-14 08:31:16

Luckystar it's only a matter of time for your BFP especially since you have had a BFP before! I am 14dpo today but unsure when AF is really due, going off luteal phase being 14-16 for most it should come any day now and I am resisting testing until weekend as I get so very sad with BFNs. Don't feel bloated or any cramping yet so don't think it will be today, don't feel pregnant either but then I don't know what that feels like. All I know is temperature is still up and I haven't slept well for weeks now.

Luckystar1 Wed 29-Jan-14 10:08:20

I didn't feel pregnant either when I got my bfp, just had weird boobs! Fx for you this month! Are you ttc#1? How long have you been trying?

Bumpforme2014 Wed 29-Jan-14 17:40:03

Errrrrrrrm okay I caved and just tested, I got a line on cheapie but wasn't convinced so tested on super drug brand and got a line on that one as well. Errrrm I'm very shocked and I still don't believe it I'm so scared. TTC number one for few months!

Luckystar1 Wed 29-Jan-14 17:55:06

Yeh!!! Go you! A line is a line as they say!! I had a good feeling for you!

Everything crossed for you for the coming months! It'll all be ok!

Bumpforme2014 Wed 29-Jan-14 18:02:08

Thank you, i can't even be happy because I'm so shocked and I can't tell anyone DH is at work until later! I want to do digital but scared in case it says no because it's not as sensitive is it. I know it's so early days though as you know too well and my sister had a miscarriage so that scares me so much. Am I suppose to go to the doctor now??

Luckystar1 Wed 29-Jan-14 18:24:56

I did a digital 3 days before af was due and got a positive. Don't start worrying, enjoy this little bit of time you have knowing what only you know!!!

It is of absolutely no consolation to you, but mc while 'common' are not as common as a healthy pregnancy. Please don't stress.

I also get sore boobs straight after ovulation anything from a few hours to the next day (confirmed by opk's and bbt) they then get progressively more sore upto 8/9dpo and then it starts to wear off before being almost unnoticeable by the day af arrives. Sometimes it's the tops, sometimes the sides and underneath, sometimes nipples too but not always confused

Also boobs fill out considerably and are known to go up as much as a cup size grin

When I was pregnant my sign was that my breast pain continued past 8/9dpo and were still very sore the day af was due, that was a major signal to me that I might be pregnant.

Thank you luckystar I hope you get your BFP as well so we can go through this together!
