Why do my breasts hurt so much?

YANAD, but why do both my breasts hurt so much? They have been very tender and swollen for about two weeks. I am a 22 year old female, and I am not on any hormonal birth control. My last period finished on January 7th and was completely normal, so I don't think I'm pregnant. My breasts do typically get very sore and swollen up to a week before my period, but usually not quite to this extent.

I have been having problems with recurrent UTIs and recently finished another round of antibiotics to treat the latest one (I'm not sure if this is relevant). The soreness and swelling is evenly distributed over each breast, and I cannot feel any lumps, and don't see anything else strange or unusual (nipples are the same color and look fine, etc.) What could be causing this? Should I rush to see a doctor right now, or can I just wait for it to go away? Thanks for your help.
I am a 34D.
