    Hi - First, keep in mind that having your tubes tied doesn't always guarantee you can't get pregnant; accidents happen. So you might want to take a pregnancy test, just in case.

     

    This sounds very hormonal, with both breasts involved; both breasts being sore isn't a breast cancer symptom. Not sure if cysts could cause this kind of soreness, though I imagine they could. So, wait a couple of weeks; and if the soreness doesn't abate (or if it gets worse; or if your breast or breasts seem infected), see a doctor, OK? Good luck - PJH

    Good morning Shellbell, several years ago I had sore ,swollen and tender breasts in fact it was so bad it hurt to walk. I only have small breasts by the way. I went to see my doctor several doctors in fact and no one seemed to be able to help me. I then was advised to go and see a highly recomended Gynocologist in Madrid...I had to take with me a hormonal blood test ...my estrogen was very high...the doctor explained to me that in cases such as mine he advises a short course of Tamoxifen....(I did not have breast cancer)...Within 6 weeks all inflamation and pain had disappeared.

     

    After you have followed PJs advice and the pain is still there it might be worth mentioning this to your gynocologist...

      ty PJ & Ironside for both of your advice :)

      I rang my doctors this morning gave him the symptoms and dates when it started.. he suggested i do a pregnancy test just to make sure (at least 3 days before period is due) which is this weekend..  If the test is negative i have to make an appointment for Monday.. Though today my breast are worse i can't even wear a bra.. so i hope i find out the problem soon. I shall suggest that problem you had Ironside.. so fingers crossed i'll be sorted Monday :) I'll keep you posted.

       

      Thanks again

      :)
