I don't understand this at all. Shouldn't monthly symptoms be the same? Yes, I know things get a bit sporadic at this point in life, but I still wish I knew just exactly what was different each month.
Until I lost our wee one at the end of January in 2009, I never had tender breasts unless I was pregnant. However, since then it has been a pretty consistent thing each month. What has not been consistent is the timing and the intensity of the tenderness. What is causing that? Usually it starts a couple of days after ovulation, increases in intensity and then starts to drop off a couple of days before AF. Some months though it starts quite late and does not get very intense and is gone in just a few days.
And then there is this month. Things are just odd. Again. My temp is nearly always below 36.5 C for the first two weeks and then above 36.55 C for that last two. This month it was very close or well over my coverline for the first 10 days, then dropped way down for a few days, finally jumping way up on CD16. Plus the tenderness started on CD14, which together with my CM would indicate I ovulated on CD13 (early for me) with a late shift in BBT. Just strange.
I just can't figure out why the difference in tenderness. I mean, they really hurt right now, I hope it doesn't get any more intense! Any suggestions what could cause the difference? I usually use a progesterone cream, but not until after ovulation (haven't started it yet this month, will tonight) and they are usually already tender by then. Otherwise I am not on any meds, just a multivitamin, B complex, and folic acid.
