Sore Breasts

I know I am going through menopause due to my period being very crazy, the hot flashes at night, and I guess the one symptom that has me concerned is my breasts are very tender and sore. I just had a period and usually after that, the soreness goes away but it is not. I am wondering if it is hormonal with menopause having the sore breasts. Does anyone else have this symptom? They seemed to have gotten larger and they are just so sore. I just had a mammogram.

Re: Sore Breasts

Hi Ashleymichele,

Like most women, I had cyclical breast tenderness all my life. It did get a bit worse when I started peri, but my main issues were the hot flashes, night sweats and anxiety. I started on HRT last summer, and that’s when the pain in my breasts got really bad. It even hurt to shower, and would actually wake me up when I rolled over at night.

Things have gotten much better since I quit HRT about a month ago. But then again, I’ve heard others say that HRT helped relieve them of breast pain, so I guess everyone’s different.

Lisa

Re: Sore Breasts

I started using a progesterone cream when my breasts started hurting so badly. It truly does take three months for the balancing, but it completely worked for me. I hope you get some relief!

Re: Sore Breasts

Hi Ashleymichele,

I am 51 and always suffered with sore breasts before my period and then after my period finished they would be fine until my next period was due. Then a couple of years ago when my periods started being all over the place my breasts would be sore nearly all the time. I started taking vitamin E (200 iu) and my breast soreness lessened and now (touch wood!) I have no breast pain whatsoever! I certainly know how you feel though and feel really sorry for you ..... hope you feel better soon.

Wow...so it took 3 months to get any relief?

do you apply the cream on your breasts or does it matter?

Hi Sonic,

No, never put any kind of hormone preparation directly on your breasts. It is not safe to do so.
