Breast pain

Breast pain (mastodynia) is occasionally an early symptom of pregnancy. A less uncomfortable tingling sensation is more usually seen, and resolves spontaneously.


As your breasts typically increase in volume by 25% please ensure you have a bra that fits you correctly in pregnancy and after childbirth. This is very important when you are keeping fit and exercising.
