Soreness of nipples can also be due to hormonal imbalance or fibrocystic disease of the breast. In that case warm compresses and anti inflammatory medicines is required.
Lastly, it can be due to pregnancy as well due to tubal ligation failure. For the same, the ideal time to do the urine for pregnancy test around 1 week if you miss your periods. You can also get your serum HCG levels estimated.
