streaks on breasts

Recently, within the past 2 weeks or so, I've noticed a large number of red streaks on my breasts. I notice them mainly on the underside of my breasts, but there are some on the top, as well. Also, on the side of my right breasts, there are very small, circular red spots, the same color and appearance, just different in shape.

I've had stretch marks on my breasts before, but these don't look quite the same, and I have a large number of them all of the sudden. It almost looks like streaks and spots of blood under the skin. There is no associated pain.

I started taking Ortho-Tricyclen about 2 months ago. I also became more sexually active within about that same time frame. Could either of these be an explanation, and what is likely the problem I am experiencing?

Re: streaks on breasts

Hi ajg0000,

I suggest that you call and/or go to your gynocologist. Tell them exactly what you just said here. It may just be a side effect of your new pills. But, I would check with your dr. just to be safe.

Take care and good luck. Wannabe
