Not too sure where to post this…
I read an article recently and I’m wondering if something said in it is fact or fiction. Here’s the quote:
If your breast pain is on the sides of your breasts, this indicates that ovulation has occurred, according to Dr. Jerilynn Prior, a Canadian clinician, researcher and professor of endocrinology at the University of British Columbia. If the pain is in the front of the breasts or over the nipples, this indicates that estrogen dominance has occurred, which may mean the lack of ovulation. If a woman experiences pain both on the sides and in the front of her breasts, this can mean that ovulation occurred but an inadequate amount of progesterone was produced after ovulation so estrogen dominance is still occurring.

Has anyone ever heard of this? Did you experience this? Did you experience something different? I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions. Thanks!

Based on the fact that before I got my BFP all of my breast pain was in my nipples, I’d have to say that this is false.

I’m also going with false. My nipples were always super sensitive and painful for the my entire LP and I know that I ovulated. I never had pain on the side of my breasts until I was pregnant.

I think this is true but since most women don’t have estrogen dominance they can’t vouch for the 2nd part of it. After I ovulate I always get breast tenderness on the sides. When I got pregnant my whole breasts were tender & my nipples were ultra-sensitive & sore.

I never got breast tenderness (that I ever noticed for the most part) except for during pregnancy so for me its not true.

Mine hurt pretty much all of the time but I am a very full C, small D and I have excess fibrous breast tissue which supposedly causes it. That said, when I was pregnant you couldn’t touch my breasts at all because they were so swollen and painful.

I hardly ever had breast tenderness in my ovulatory cycles so this doesn’t work for me. I did find out I had low progesterone this pregnancy cycle though and was put on supplements but I definitely didn’t have the breast pain pattern they describe.
