This is perfectly normal, so don't worry. The tenderness of the breast and any painful sensations that you may feel around this time are actually completely normal. The pain is a result of a hormonal action in your body which is closely related to your menstruation period. This can happen at any time for women, but is particularly problematic for most women just before their menstruation begins.

The problem is related to the hormones that play a part in actually creating the menstruation cycle. This is of course in relation to the fluctuation of estrogen and progesterone within your body.

Many people worry that due to the fact the pain starts just before their period, that they are pregnant. Pain in the breasts is obviously associated with pregnancy and when you haven't quite started your period yet it's understandable to get a little worried about the pain, and the possibility of you being pregnant. Just remember that this is completely normal and you only ever need to start worrying about whether you are pregnant or not a couple of weeks after you were meant to have your period. It is then that you should consider a pregnancy test or a consultancy with your doctor.

Your local family planning clinic can also cater for you, providing you with all the information and assistance you need for when it comes to pregnancy and your period. They will be able to talk to you about what is and isn't normal and what you can do to make your period less problematic. They will obviously talk to you about pads and tampons and how you can reduce the pain you suffer during your menstruation period. So get in touch with them as soon as possible and you'll get all the help you need.

Breast tenderness and painful sensation is a result of hormonal action in the women especially if the menstruation is approaching. It has something to do with the hormones which plays a role in women's menstruation cycle such as the fluctuation of estrogen and progesterone. this is just a normal event so there is nothing to worry about. If your concerned much about your breast condition, learn to do breast self examination. inspect and palpate or touch your breast for unusualities such as mass, lesions or unusual discharges.

The increased hormone levels will make your breasts, hurt, feel heavy and feel huge! There would be months that my breasts hurt so bad I could hardly stand up straight. You can take some OTC pain relief, and it would not hurt to wear a good supportive bra- even to bed- during those days.

It is due to hormones. It is perfectly normal. Try taking a warm bath and some tylenol and stay hydrated can help. You can also try a warm rice bag for the pain. It is all due to hormones.

The extra hormones your body is producing makes your body tissue retain water. This is what causes your breasts to swell and puts pressure on the nerves causing the pain, soreness, and extra sensitivity.
