It has happened to me pretty often. One month I was convinced I was pregnant because I was sore enough to have to sleep in a bra.

I just added a similar question in the February POAS board. This is the first time I’ve experienced sore breasts right after I O’ed. It seems to be subsiding now (3 DPO)…but very strange because this is new to me. Someone responded to me that this is a normal thing caused by hormones. Wish it meant I was prego! 🙂

Yeah, I’d always get sore nipples the day of O and then throughout the LP. Actually, that was one of the main things about my BFP – I didn’t have it for the first time in 11 months. Now that I’m pregnant, I’ve had barely any boob tenderness and Im 5 weeks 3 days – go figure.


So yep, totally normal.

Same here, always Ovulation to AF. Boobs, nipples and Montgomery glands, the whole 9 yard… As I’m TTC, I’m interested to know how this changes when I get BFP.

This happens to me almost every month. I only know I’m in trouble/going to have a short LP/not going to get pregnant when it happens the day of or even before ovulation.

I usually get sore breasts/nipples within 5 days of ovulation, though usually within 2 – 3.

@Future Mrs.L:  yeah, I always knew I’d Od based on my sore breasts. It’s a pain but also reassuring. I had a mc 2 months ago and now my breasts never get sore. I was told this may be down to low progesterone which is not good so it turns out sore boobs is Good for me!!
