breast pain due to Duphaston?

User Profile
My last period was in Dec 3, 2014, and on the 23rd of January I went to my OB Gyn for a checkup since I was negative on both urine and Serum pregnancy tests. She had me take Duphaston for 5 days, and it is now 2 days since i finished my cycle. I didn't have this much pain in the breasts on my first pregnancy, is this due to Duphaston? I also tested at home this morning and it was negative. Is there a possibility that I'm not pregnant after having all those signs? Or it would show only after two weeks? My husband and I wanted to be pregnant so bad that when I saw the single line this morning frustrated me. Thanks so much.

Welcome to e health forum.

yes, Breast tenderness is a side effect of Duphaston. Other side effects include migraines/headache, nausea and bloating/weight gain.

Since the pregnancy tests done recently are negative it is most probable that you are not pregnant.

For a woman to get pregnant, there are 2 necessities. She has to have her periods regularly and have unprotected sexual intercourse.

In case the cycles are irregular, it is a indicator, that there is no regular ovulation, and hence chances of pregnancy would be very less.

Other very common causes of lack of regular periods include - Severe stress and anxiety, acute weight changes, eating disorders (Bulemia), Rigorous exercises, conditions like ovarian cysts (with irregular cycles), and hypothyroidism.

Hence if you are planning to conceive, it would be highly recommended that you consult your OBGYN and seek proper medical evaluation and specific treatment.

I hope this helps.
