Together with irregular periods, women can experience BREAST TENDERNESS as they enter perimenopause.
This is usually a result of hormonal changes. Two thirds of women will experience great discomfort at some point during perimenopause. The discomfort can be described as soreness or burning in one or both breasts. Women may complain that their breasts are too sore to touch and find that they cannot tolerate wearing a bra at this time.
This feeling may be temporary and may come and go, but other women may experience more constant discomfort that may be sharp or throbbing in nature.
If women are not in their forties or fifties, are in perimenopause or menopause, and are experiencing breast tenderness that they think is not related to hormonal changes, it is advised that they consult their health care professional.
There are Essential Oils that can be used topically when breast discomfort occurs. These are:
• Ylang Ylang
