Causes of Tender Breasts
Breast tenderness and pain usually occurs just before your period. This is probably nothing new for you, but during premenopause, your breasts often feel even more tender and swollen than before.
Our breasts go through cycles as the hormones in our bodies change each month during our menstrual cycle.
Just before you get your period, your estrogen and progesterone levels rise. These rising levels signal the breasts to prepare for breast feeding, which makes our breasts fill with fluid and become more full, and also, more tender.
During premenopause, our bodies begin to skip ovulations, which makes our breast pain hard to predict.
What's Up, Doc?
It is always good practice to see your doctor to be sure that your breast pain is just a premenopausal symptom. Your doctor can test your hormone levels and screen you for breast cancer.
Take the time to be honest to yourself and others about your feelings. Holding pent-up feelings does nothing to help your physical or emotional state. Some women find that by taking more time for themselves and focusing on their dreams, they can alleviate some of the physical pain in their bodies.
