For the past 5 days my left breast, especially has been particularly tender. I tend to get this only a few days before my period.... I will be getting my period in 10 days. What about u, soreness and when?
I haven't ever really suffered from this, but I am suspecting you started with the pain when you ovulated. You have your period 10 days from now, and you have had this pain for 5 days. Most women ovulate on the 14th day, but some vary by a day or 2, so I am thinking that is what this is.
I have the same problem most months. Right after I ovulate the hormones kick in and I have tender breast right up until my period begins and I'm in my late 40's now. Would have thought my periods would ease up by now, but I'm regular like clockwork along with the same symptoms two weeks before.
You are on the pill? Well that sort of changes everything. You typically don't ovulate on the pill - that is the whole point of it. I know that some times that does happen, and when it does, the pill creates a "hostile envirnoment" to prevent implantation.
Your breast soreness might be an indication of ovulation, or it be something hormonal related to the pill. If it gets worse, I would give the doc a call. if it stays the same for thetime being, it might just be something this month that will end with your period.
I used to get breast swellling and tenderness anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 days before my cycle. Some months they would be so painful that I couldn't even sleep on my stomach!
One thing that I found, and I know you may say "that is strange!" but, my gyno is the one who told me this and, take it from someone who did it and it is SO true!:
If you drink alot of caffeine products, reduce them and chocolate too (which has alot of caffeine). After a couple of months you will find that the breast tenderness and swelling is reduced significantly!
I have been on Progeseterone therapy now for three months and I have noticed that the past two months I have had NO breast swelling or tenderness! I am assuming it is from the Progseterone although, the first month they were up and down like a helium balloon! Again though, I am assuming my body had to adjust to it.
