Breast tenderness is a common symptom of pregnancy but not everyone experiences it, and it is not always the same in different pregnancies for the same woman. I was so sore in my first I couldn't even hug my husband, but in my second I had no tenderness at all.

Can breast tenderness and period that comes 2 days late that's light be a sign of pregnancy?

Yes. Breast tenderness is a good way of telling that you're pregnant, especially if you're late having your period. Breast tenderness is a huge sign of pregnancy. I would wait to see if you get your period within the next week or two and take a HPT. Other signs of pregnancy are nausea (not every women gets it though), back pain, fatigue, going to the bathroom more. If you think you're pregnant, take an HPT, but give it enough time to detect the hormone. Which is about a month or so after conception. Otherwise, go to the doctor and they'll tell you for sure. Good luck!

You want to make a breast large?

Answer: You need to train/pump your breast-muscles, do that every day for as long as you like, the muscles will grow and your breast will appear larger. You can also drink hops-free beer, you will not get drunk since it got no hops in it but it will give your breast much more liquid.

Could you be pregnant if your period was two weeks late and your breasts are getting bigger or swollen?

My breasts swell and become tender from PMS which happens around the time of my period. You could just be experiencing a greater rush of hormones due to your period being late. Hello. If you period is normal then its unlikely your pregnant. The hormones released during your period do cause a increase in breast size or a change in breast shape and tenderness to the breast and nipple area. But in what way it effects you is different in every woman. Because your period was two weeks late I would do a pregnancy test. If positive then see your doctor. Good luck.

Could you be pregnant if your breasts feel sore and your tummy twinges and feels tired and your period is due next week?

Breast tenderness is one sympton of pregnancy, but my breasts get sore the week before my period every single month, so that alone is not a good indicator.

If you don't start your period on time and the test was negative, then go to your doctor.

Do you have to have breast tenderness to be pregnant?

AnswerNot necessarily, every woman and every pregnancy are different.My breasts were extremely sore with my first, before I even missed a period, but I had hardly any discomfort the second time aroundAnswerPMS can cause breast tenderness as can peri-menopause and menopause. Taking birth control pills can also give you breast tenderness and believe it or not in some older women drinking too much caffeine. Before I went for my yearly mammogram I was told not to drink any caffeine 24 hours before getting the test. Some women (from 20 up) can form cluster lumps or small non-cancerous lumps and by drinking too much caffeine this can raise them enough in the x-ray for the technician to become suspicious and worry yourself to death. Nix the caffeine when going for a mammogram! Also some medications can cause breast tenderness so when taking any medication (especially any medications with hormones such as birth control or Hormone Replacement) expect sore breasts.In some women this can be extremely uncomfortable so wear an old bra to bed to support your breasts during this time and you're sure to have a good nights sleep.
