Breastfeeding can be one of the joys of being a new mom. It can also be painful sometimes. For most women, there is a remedy for this discomfort, and there is no reason to stop nursing. In fact, nursing may even relieve the pain.

There may be many reasons why your nipples or breasts are sore, including the following:

* Incorrect latching by your baby -The most common reason for sore nipples is that the baby is not latching onto your nipple correctly. With a little practice, you can correct this at home. Your baby should open her mouth widely and take in a wide area of your areola, the circle of dark skin around your nipple. Your nipple should be in the back of your baby’s mouth.
* Thrush -Thrush is a common infection caused by a candida fungus often called yeast. Yeast thrives on milk and in warm, moist environments. Your baby may also have thrush. Check her mouth for white spots on the side of her cheek.. Speak to your doctor about over-the-counter medications. Some medications for yeast infections should NOT be used on your breasts, so ask before you begin treatment.
* Engorgement- Your breasts may become engorged or full of milk and fluid. This usually occurs after delivery when you milk is first coming in, but it can happen any time you delay breastfeeding. Nursing or pumping (if you cannot be with your baby) will usually relieve this discomfort.
* Plugged or clogged milk ducts- Sometimes your milk does not drain completely and a duct can become clogged. Try applying moist heat to the area and gently massaging it. Be sure to continue to nurse on that side.
* Mastitis- Mastitis is a mild infection that may be caused by a persistent clogged milk duct. To resolve the pain, apply moist heat to the area, gently massage it, and continue to nurse on that side. If the pain persists or if you have a fever or chills, contact your doctor. You may need antibiotics.

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.

Hi,

Sore breasts after ovulation usually come from the progesterone hormone and are a very good sign that you have ovulated. Notice it each day after ovulation your progesterone increases until you get your period (it then goes down).

The following are the home remedies which you can try:

1. The best thing is cold fomentation on the painful area of the breast. Take few ice cubes from the refrigerator and wrap them in a clean towel. Now apply the wrapped ice cube over the painful breasts for 5 to 10 minutes. Do this procedure at least three times in a day. It is the most effective home remedy for treating breast soreness caused after ovulation.
2. Reduce your salt intake. Since salt retains water, reducing salt during acute phase of soreness it will help in reducing water retention.
3. You have to remain active during this phase and eat low fat and carbohydrate diet.
4. Eat fiber rich foods; this includes green leafy vegetables and fruits. Fiber rich foods help in regulating progesterone and estrogen hormones. It thus helps in reducing tenderness and pain in breasts.

Hope this helps

Cheers
