8 Signs of Ovulation to Detect Your Most Fertile Time
Your nipples, and maybe even your breasts, may feel sore or achy around ovulation. The discomfort could range from minor to severe. You might have pain in one or both nipples. Ovulation is a phase in the menstrual cycle that happens when the ovary releases an egg each month. It occurs about 14 days before your period starts.
Breast pain, also known as mastalgia, is commonly present in women. The pain may occur as breast tenderness, tightness in breast tissue or as a sharp burning pain. The pain is generally categorized as noncyclical or cyclical. Cyclical breast pain is linked with your menstrual cycle and it usually gets better after your periods.
Noncyclic breast pain. The pain may come from the breast. Or it may come from somewhere else, such as nearby muscles or joints, and may be felt in the breast.
