Please help ?
Hi Ladies and Doc
I never experienced this before so i need your guidance my period starts on the 10th of this month and since the 4th Jan 05 my breast on the sides are sore not swollen just very sore could this mean something or is hormonal change. My question is when does your breast start to pain or swell how long before a period?

Thanks and this site is excellent the Doc & u ladies are wonderful helpers?

Everyone is different. Many women have sore breasts a few days before a period. This does not indicate a hormone imbalance. You don't say how old you are, but patterns of the menstrual cycle do change at different phases of your life, periods get longer or shorter, premenstrual symptoms occur or disappear. It does not sound like anything to worry about.
