Menopause and Breast Tenderness
When ovulation and menstruation cease and are absent for a year, a woman is said to be in menopause. The period immediately preceding menopause is known as perimenopause. Perimenopause and menopause often bring with them dramatic physical and emotional changes that can include uncomfortable symptoms, such as breast tenderness. A natural menopause treatment may be able to help alleviate this type of breast discomfort.
Breast tenderness is often cyclical in nature. Women may experience increased discomfort around the time of their menstrual cycles. Non-cyclical breast pain may be related to cysts, breast size or trauma. Women who are nearing menopause may have both types of breast pain even if they are still having their menstrual cycles.
Increased levels of hormones or hormone fluctuations can lead to breast tenderness, but there are ways you can reduce your pain and discomfort. Excessive caffeine or salt consumption can both increase the risk of developing breast pain. Since a too-small or too-large bra can aggravate pain or discomfort, getting professionally fitted for a bra can also help. Losing weight may help relieve the pressure from very large breasts. Warm or cold compresses may be able to reduce pain or tenderness.
If you are suffering from menopause-related breast tenderness, DON’T PAUSE may be able to help. Designed as a menopause natural remedy, DON’T PAUSE contains purified soy isoflavones, black cohosh extract and pomegranate extract to reduce the incidence and severity of menopause and get you back on track to a healthy, comfortable life.
