try evening primrose and aqua ban tablets. An old wives remedy is cabbage leaves (the dark green ones) in your bra
hope you;re feeling better soon

BW, no it doesn't sound stupid as I keep having tons of baths in warm water as finding thats helping.

At least if I was pg I would be suffering for a good reason and wouldn't care but this is  :'(

hi there,
if you use the cabbage leaves, put them in the fridge first!! this really helps, also wear a sports bra(crop top type is best) The reason they are so sore is you are having a progesterone surge, try dandylion tea.
Hope this helps  :)

Hi nikki,
i think someone mentioned evening primrose oil to help your sore breasts but if they ment evening primrose oil capsules and there is any chance you might be pg don't take them as they can cause uterine contractions in pg.They are ok to take up to ov but thats it.A good tip for evening primrose oil tablets is they make your cm more fertile and when bding if your normally quite dry(tmi...sorry)they can help increase cm.
Hope that helps

Nikki,

I use hot flannels on my boobs when they get like that, that way you dont have to have a complete bath everytime! or old faithful, the hotwater bottle!!

Hope they calm down soon for you hun
