Painful boobs

Sometimes the girls throw a temper tantrum. Yup, those girls. The twins if you will. They can be achy, sensitive, and annoying. While many of us have hurty boobs around "that time of the month", sometimes they just hurt. The question is, why are my boobs hurting, is this normal, or should I do something about it?

The ladies over at Gyno Gab went over some reasons why your boobs may hurt, and when you should seek out help from your lady parts doctor:

  • Am I knocked up?  Probably not. Although women's websites are always filled with "Am I pregnant" questions. If your boobs hurt, and  you could be pregnant, just go out and get a home pregnancy test so that you know for sure. 
  • Is my latte addiction causing my boobs to hurt? Several studies have shown a connection between the two. Since being a caffeine junkie isn't that great for you anyway, cut back and see if that helps. 
  • Will taking birth control pills help?  Sometimes yes, since steady hormones help boob pain, although starting a new hormone regimen can cause boobs to hurt even more in the beginning. 
  • My boobs are killing me, I need pharmaceutical intervention! If they are that bad, give your lady parts doctor a call. You can also try Advil or Tylenol to see if that helps. 
  • Only one of my boobs hurt! Since most normal boob pain is in both of the girls, if only one of your boobs hurts, call your lady parts doctor. 
  • My partner likes to play rough with my boobs during sex, and now they hurt. While rough sex can cause some discomfort, if they are really hurting and there is bruising, perhaps time to check in with your lady parts doctor. 
  • Can there be some sort of infection? Yup. If the skin on your around your boobs are red, warm, or feels funny, give a call ASAP to your doctor. 
And there you have it folks.  Boob pain can be totally normal, since those girls can be mighty finicky, but if it seems out of the ordinary for YOUR particular boobs, do a little self exam, and give your lady parts doctor a call.
