    Sore Breasts for Over 2 Weeks & Negative Blood Test

    Brisgyrl17 posted:
    My breasts have been sore and swollen just a little over 2 weeks now, and I took a pregnancy blood test a few days ago which came up negative. I am 2-3 days out of ovulation, and there is no signs of my breasts returning back to normal. Could I be pregnant? I still have 1 1/2 weeks until I know whether I am going to miss my period.

    If I am not pregnant, what could possibly cause my breasts to be this sore?

    Ok, so if you are 2-3 days past ovulation it would be way too soon to have any pregnancy sypmtoms, including swollen and tender breasts. It takes 6-10 days after ovulation for implantation, so not saying you are not pregnant, but your breasts right now are not any indication.

    You sore breasts could be from another cause, as the other poster said, 2-3 days post ovulation is way to soon to be experience any symptoms of pregnancy. Sad to say you are going to have to wait and see. If you miss your next period by more than 2-7 days then test.
    Best of luck.

    It turns out my period started a week early. My breasts are still slightly swollen though but not as bad. I guess it is possible I just started ovulating after being off the Paraguard IUD since early Nov.
