Late For Period...sore, Itchy Breasts...please Read The Rest Below.

I have really sore, itchy breasts, I am also 3 days late for my period...although, I do feel like I'm ready to get it, down there. Is this just signs I'm about to come on? I have had unprotected sex with my boyfriend for the last couple of months.

Answer

Sore, itchy breasts are not unusual right before a period. Breast changes can also be an early symptom of pregnancy. This article on itchy breasts can give you some background information. It may turn out that you are not pregnant this month, but unless you and your boyfriend have decided you are ready to be parents, please use protection from now on. You will want to see a doctor if your period doesn't start or if the soreness continues after your period is over.
