- Could a girl’s breasts burst?
- Could a girl’s boobs pop like a balloon?
The answer to these questions is, “No.” For a long time, we didn’t understand what was behind these questions. Then one day, a girl in our class clued us in:
Grown-ups are always saying things like, “Oh, you’re really popping out,” or “You’re sure bursting out all over.” Sometimes my breasts feel sore, like they really are about to burst, so I wondered.
If you’ve worried about this, you can stop worrying. Your breasts won’t pop or burst. Many girls I talked to had concerns or worries about their developing breasts. I’ll share their concerns with you in the below paragraphs:
Itchy, Tender, Sore, or Painful Breasts
One or both of your developing breasts may be itchy, tender, sore, or downright painful at times. One girl told us:
I was really freaked out. I had these little flat bumps under my nipples. They hurt all the time, especially if they got hit or something. They were so sore. I thought maybe some thing was wrong.Developing breasts are often itchy, sore, tender, or even painful. This is not a sign that something is wrong. It’s just a normal part of growing up. The discomfort usually goes away on its own. The pain usually isn’t severe. In the rare cases when the pain is severe, the girl should see her doctor. He or she can prescribe drugs to help the problem.
Once a girl’s periods begin, she may find that her breasts are sore around the time of her menstrual period. For more information on this, read other related posts.
