Dr. K. :

Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

How old is your wife?

Dr. K. :

If the tests were negative, shes not pregnant.

Dr. K. :

She may feel her breasts are fuller since this is the time before her period

Dr. K. :

  • Most likely what has happened is that ovulation was delayed this month for some reason, stress or otherwise. This then delays the period

Dr. K. :

When this happens, premenstrual symptoms such as breast swelling may be worse

Dr. K. :

You cannot really do anything but wait for a period :)
