Sore/Sensitive Nipples

Very Early Pregnancy Symptom

Symptom Details

Changes to the breasts can begin very soon after conception. Increasing levels of hormones cause increased blood flow and changes to the breast tissue. This increase can cause sore or sensitive nipples, a change that can be enjoyable for some but painful for others. As your body adjusts to the new surge of hormones the pain should subside.

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.
