Sensitive Breasts

Very Early Pregnancy Symptom

Symptom Details

Changes to your breasts can begin very soon after conception. This might be your first clue that you are pregnant! Increasing levels of hormones cause increased blood flow and changes to the breast tissue. As milk ducts and milk-producing cells develop your breasts may feel swollen, tender or very sensitive to touch. You may also feel throbbing, burning sensation or itchiness. Your breasts may also grow in size, feel heavy or change in shape.

Comparison Chart

The chart below shows a comparison between the number of times this symptom was experienced by pregnant vs non-pregnant women.

**NOTE: Data for 15-21 dpo tends to be lower than expected as many women stop tracking symptoms after a positive pregnancy test.
