Soreness, tender spots on breast & nipples

User Profile
My boyfriend and I have been having unprotected sex for the last few weeks and he has ejaculated in me numerous times.
I just looked at my breasts and noticed the usually pale pink skin around the nipple is a tan-pinkish colour and the nipples are a lot darker and stand out more. My nipples also seem to be a whitish colour at the very tip of the nipple. My breast are quite tender under the areola and the part closest to my armpits. But the top of my breast are not tender at all. I think my breasts are heavier although I cant be sure.
Although I have never noticed my boobs do this before, could it just be my upcoming period?
Also, I have a strange taste in my mouth sometimes. (i recently had my tongue pierced, could that be the cause?)
i am getting hungrier a lot more often, but filling up more easily.
Yesterday I had a sharp pain in the left side of my stomach when I was doing a pooh. A pain ive never experienced.
I have discaharge, although that is not totally unusual.

The sensations that you are noticing on and around the breasts could be due to an incoming menstrual period. Yes, the strange taste in your mouth could be due to the pierced tongue.
Your appetite is not a problem as long as you keep your present weight.
It is hard to say what possibly caused the “sharp pain in the left side of your stomach” without a physical examination.
Vaginal discharge is probably due to a vaginal infection but that should be confirmed by a gynecologist.
