Hello, I am not sure if this is the right board to post on but here goes.
I am 26 yr. old female, healthy overall. I do not take any drugs and only drink maybe one drink a month. I do not smoke and have no health problems.
Over the past two and half months I have had severe breast pain. At one point and time it hurt to brush my arms / hands against my nipples. I thought it was a pre-period symptom however, my breasts get extremely sore almost 3 weeks before my period is due. I use to take birth control, the pill, but have not been on it for 7 months. About a month ago my nipples were leaking a clear liquid. Not enough to stain my clothes and only when I lightly squeezed my nipples. It went on for about a week and hasn't happened since. No, i am not pregnant, I have taken pregnancy tests and still get a normal period.
Most of the pain is in my nipples and they are swollen and the outer sides of my breasts. I have done a self exam and even had my husband check for lumps too he felt nothing unusual, any ideas?
I don't have health insurance and the state I live in doesn't offer assistance to low income families, so I am hesitant to go to the doctor, especially if it isn't anything.
