Re: Anyone else notice tender or sore breasts with peri?
I'm 48 and have been getting this same sypmtom for a couple of years or so. It's usually about a week and a half before my period starts, but some months it seems to last most of the month. This month I'm particularly messed up, because my period came about a week early, and yes, I was gettting sore about 4 days before it started, and I seem to still have it on day 5.
I never know what to expect these days. My gyn said I can take progesterone for the half the month starting on day 12 of my cylce, and this would held them become more regular, but I read the side effects, and breast tenderness is on the list, so I'm not sure (among other reasons), is I want to go this route.
I really wish I would stop having my periods and just be done with all of this.
