I'm on lutera birth control, last month my breasts were

Patient

Q: I'm on lutera birth control, last month my breasts were not sore before my period. Now this month a week before my period my right boob is only sore. I have never missed a pill and take it aHt the same time everyday. Is there a possibility I'm pregnant or is this a normal symptom?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

Breast soreness is not a sign of pregnancy alone, it.can also be a part of premenstrual syndrome.
Since you are nearing the cycles, this can cause breast tenderness. However, do a beta hCG blood test to rule out pregnancy.

Hope this helped.
Regards
