Re: Breast pain before period

I too have it... Might be because of hormonal changes. Just consult with your gynecologist for the remedy.


There are a number of things that you can try to ease the pain.

* Wear a soft bra at night.
* Avoid jogging, aerobics or other high-impact exercises.
* Make sure your bra fits correctly – get properly measured by a specialist fitter (most department stores have one).
* If you are taking any hormones, such as the oral contraceptive pill or hormone replacement therapy (HRT), consider stopping them for a while to see if the breast pain lessens. Breast pain seems to be common in women who have recently started HRT.
* Try a low-fat diet. There is some evidence that high levels of saturated fats in the blood make the breasts more sensitive to hormone levels, so it may be worth changing your diet. Avoid fatty meat, cheese, full-fat milk, cream, butter and anything made of pastry. Instead eat oily fish, such as herring and mackerel, twice a week. Fill up with carbohydrates (bread, potatoes, rice, pasta), fresh fruit and vegetables.
* Try avoiding coffee and cola drinks for a few weeks to see if this makes any difference.
* Consider Vitus agnus castus (Chasteberry), which is available from health-food stores. It affects various hormones, such as progesterone, and may help cyclical breast pain, though the scientific evidence is scanty (American Family Physician 2005; 72:821–4).
