Severe Pain In The Breast Before And After Menstruation?
Hello, I am Wulan. I have been experiencing breast pain in the past three months. Usually before and after menses. Until it feels crowded. What is the cause and deal with it?
Good morning Wulan, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Breast pain, or mastalgia, can occur due to various things, including:
Effects of hormonal imbalances Bacterial and viral infections in the skin or breast tissue Abnormal tissue growth The use of a bra that does not match the size Side effects of drugs High-fat diets and can also be other causes depending on the results of the examination. Against this condition, actually 30 percent of women experience improvement in menstrual-related breast pain after 3 menstrual cycles without any treatment. So this could be the last pain that you experience in the near future, although in the future it does not rule out the possibility of it happening again. So our advice, try to see first if the pain still persists in the next month. And if that is the case, check with your general practitioner to find out the possible causes and determine the best treatment, including if it turns out you need to be referred to a surgeon, obstetrician or another.
Meanwhile, you can reduce pain by compressing your breasts warm, reducing caffeine intake, avoiding cigarette smoke, avoiding fatty foods, and taking pain relievers such as paracetamol, ibuprofen and aspirin according to their recommended use. If you are under 20 years, do not use aspirin because it can cause other diseases. Avoid touching your breasts, wear a comfortable bra, and see a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
