This answer was rated:

I've had tender sore breasts and my nipples have gotten darker 1 week before my period which was on agust 15 its been 7 weeks since then and they're the same oh and they have very visible veins too my last period was 2 regular days and the other 3 was just spotting I been cramping what conserns me more is my breast why do I have veiny sore breasts?

Dr. Pfeiffer :

hello

Dr. Pfeiffer :

I would recommend taking a pregnancy test.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

pregnancy can cause the change in appearance of the veins and skin color.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

so...that's the first thing I would check...

Dr. Pfeiffer :

now, if it's negative..the pain and changes you are noticing are probably due to a hormonal imbalance, which is usually due to not ovulating.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

this is also why you would have missed a period.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

if you are going months without a period...you need to have testing done to try to find out why.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

thyroid, polycystic ovarian syndrome, elevated prolactin levels...being the most common tests.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

but...start with the pregnancy test.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

the results will be accurate now.
