User :   My nipples are sore and I just started getting pains in the middle of my chest. However, my breasts are not sore, just my nipples. Does this mean I am pregnant?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hello, my nipples are sore, but not my breast, and I just recently got chest pains while eating dinner, does this mean I am pregnant?
Doctor :   May I know your age?
User :   I am 17, and I'm currently on birth control.
Doctor :   Since when are you having these symptoms?
User :   I my nipples started hurting maybe 2 or 3 days ago and my chest started hurting half an hour ago
Doctor :   Can you describe the chest pain?
Doctor :   Are you active sexually?
User :   It was minor, and not painful. It was more uncomfortable to have. And yes, I am sexually active. I also took Nyquil last week because I was sick, could that reduce the effectiveness of my birth control pill?
Doctor :   Let me explain.
Doctor :   Since I am unable to physically examine you, I cannot pinpoint the exact cause for the symptoms that you have been having.
Doctor :   The pain could be a heart burn issue while soreness of nipple can also happen due to multiple other reasons.
Doctor :   So, if you are concerned of pregnancy,
Doctor :   the best method to rule this out is by getting yourself tested via urine pregnancy test.
Doctor :   As far as your symptoms goes, of the various possible condition that can cause symptoms, few of them could be
Doctor :   1. Stress factors
Doctor :   2. Indigestion and reflex
Doctor :   3. Side effects of birthcontrol pills (if the pills are mini pills - progesterone only pill)
Doctor :   So get the pregnancy test and see a doctor for physical examination.
Doctor :   Hope I have answered your query?
User :   Oh, but I also have been getting random bouts of naseua and cramps, could that also be related?
Doctor :   Stress and anxiety can explain,
Doctor :   The medications (mini pills) can also cause similar symptoms.
Doctor :   However, you need to rule out pregnancy first.
Doctor :   So get the urine pregnancy test done.
User :   Okay, how soon can I take a pregnancy test?
Doctor :   Pregnancy test is best done after 2-4 weeks after sexual exposure.
User :   Okay, thank you so much!
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me.
