Pain Relief for PMS Breasts
While a bit of breast tenderness during your menstrual cycle is to be expected, some women experience such pain they must limit their activities. No hugs, no exercise, no intimacy.

PMS breasts, also known as fibrocystic breasts, are caused by engorgement of non-lactating glands as hormones come and go. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help. Birth control pills can regulate that engorgement hormonally. You may also need more iodine in your diet.

If your breasts are too painful, you don't have to accept it.

Listen in as Dr. Lee Shulman discusses how to address PMS breasts.
