They can be. Here are some personal experiences:

  • I had EXTREMELY itchy nipples with my first pregnancy, before I even knew that I was pregnant. I am ttc no. 4, and have itchiness in the left nipple.
  • I had itchy nipples and/or breasts during both pregnancies from two days after ovulating until I miscarried on the first or delivered my baby on the second. I have only had itchy nipples otherwise while trying to conceive (and there's evidence I was having an implant problem) or when I had thrush when I was breastfeeding. You could also have nipple eczema or thrush but you'd probably have a noticeable reddness or cracked nipples.

Sore nipples can be a sign of pregnancy, or if you're due for a period, your nipples with get sore about a week before your period, if you miss your period, take a pregnancy test.

Some women are more prone to yeast infections during pregnancy, and sore breasts and/or nipples is a sign of pregnancy. The sore throat could be related to the thrush (yeast) - but is not a sign of pregnancy. If you are questioning a possible pregnancy you should take a test and remove all doubt.

Pregnancy is one of many conditions that may be causing sore nipples.

Yes and also a sign of pregnancy. PMS symptoms can mimic pregnancy symptoms.

Nausea and sore nipples, most certainly. Car sickness, not so much.

Not always no. It can be a sign of nipple irritation or infection.

That can be sign of pregnancy or PMS. All women are different.

It can sometimes be a sign of pregnancy, PMS or nothing. They can be sore because they just are. I experience sore nipples whenever I am about to start my period and when I start PMSing. I have heard it is a sign you are pregnant as well.

The entire breast, including the nipples, can be sore at 6 weeks of pregnancy.

Depends on whether or not your taking any kind of medication. But could be, just get a pregnancy test.

Not generally. Sore, swollen, tender or color change in the breasts can be a sign thouogh.

Sore nipples and missed periods are two signs of pregnancy, yes. But the only way to be sure is to have a test done.

Yes this can be a sign of pregnancy however there are other things that could cause this such as hormones.

Spotting after a pap smear is not a sign of pregnancy. Signs of pregnancy are an absent period and positive pregnancy test. Sore nipples are a common symptom of both menstruation and pregnancy.

Sore breasts could be a sign of ovulation, a sign of pregnancy, or a symptom of the bloating that some women experience before beginning a menstrual period. Very sensitive nipples - I'm not sure about this one.

User Avatar

Yes; it is common to have sore nipples during the first trimester of your pregnancy.

User Avatar

For me, yes. It was basically the first sign of prefnancy. A lot of women first begin to wonder about pregnancy because of sore breasts. Mine were sore for a couple days and then they seemed to get fuller overnight. The soreness lessened but was still there as they swelled with my belly:)

You don't ovulate if you are pregnant and if you are not pregnant ovulation is perfectly normal.

This is a sign of early pregnancy. A missed period is the best way to know though
