- Your monthly period or when you have premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Pregnancy, usually in the first trimester
- Breastfeeding. Sometimes a blocked milk duct can get infected, a painful condition called mastitis. It needs to be treated immediately, usually with antibiotics.
- Menopause- take ALEVE
Fibrocystic Breast ChangesThis is likely linked to hormones, as well. Fibrous tissue (breast tissue that’s scar-like or ropey) and cysts (fluid-filled sacs) form in your breasts. It can be painful, but it’s normal and usually harmless.About half of women in their 20s to 50s get it. You don’t need treatment unless your symptoms are severe.
Fatty Acid ImbalanceThese acids are found in vegetable and animals oils. If there’s an imbalance of them in your cells, your breasts can be more sensitive to hormones.To reduce your symptoms, try cutting down the fat in your diet. Your doctor might also recommend a diet high in complex carbs.Some doctors think taking evening primrose oil helps correct fatty acid imbalances, too.
Noncyclical Breast PainBreast pain also can be triggered by reasons other than hormones. Yours might be linked to another issue if:
- Your pain feels like soreness, burning, or tightness
- Discomfort is constant (or unpredictable)
- Pain seems to affect one breast in a particular area
- You’ve passed menopause
Extramammary Breast PainThis pain feels like it’s coming from your breasts. But it’s actually radiating from somewhere else, often the chest wall.
