Hi,

Sore and tender nipples are due to following possible causes:

1) If you are taking any hormonal medicines like progesterone.

2) If you are due for your periods.

Let me know if any of the above apply to you ?

Hormonal imbalance

Hi,

The problems you are facing likely to be are from hormonal imbalance due to irregular cycles.

I suggest you take birth control pills for 3 cycles to regularise cycles which will help you with breast pain and tenderness.
