Ovulation / Breast symptoms ?

I've been posting alot about my peri symtoms and have been monitoring this one for few couple of months now.
I am still ovulationg (on and off). I know the months that I do, because I have the little cramps in that area. It seems most of the time I feel it on my left side more than my right. I also have a small complex cyst on the left, so I wonder if that makes the pain more so.
Anyway, the part that I'm wondering about - I also am getting a little sore/heavy feeling in the left breast, during this time. The few days before my period both are a bit sore, but the left always seems worse.(It's also slightly larger, but not alot - I'm the only one that notices).

This must all be my hormones going crazy - breast,cyst etc... I also get very moody/anxious at this time. The last few days were bad, and now it seems to make sense.

Just venting again. It's nice to let it all out.

Re: Ovulation / Breast symptoms ?

Hi Mary,
I have a complex cyst on my left ovary. It may be gone by now, started on BCP 6 months ago and the pain is much improved. I still get some twinges, but on both sides. I always have have soreness under my left arm. It is there pretty much all the time. My breasts used to be so sore about 2 weeks before my periods, now,no swelling or soreness at all. I wonder if that means I am high or low on estrogen. This whole thing is a guessing game I'm tired of playing. What symptoms do I have today and what does it mean? My only comfort is knowing others are having the same worries. Never knew before peri could have so many physical problems. I thought it was hot flashes and being emotional from time to time. That's just the tip of the iceburg! No wonder so many of us think we are dying when we start this, we were unprepared. Nice to have a forum like this to help learn so much about this time of life. Ann
