If you want to learn about preventing sore breasts during menopause, then read this article all the way to the end. We will discuss possible causes of sore breasts and then give you ten suggestions on how to quickly and easily prevent the very uncomfortable symptoms of sore breasts.
The biggest reason for sore breasts during menopause is hormonal changes in the body. During menopause a woman’s body begins to produce less estrogen to make the transition from a body that produces the necessary ingredients to produce children to a body that no longer needs these ingredients.
A woman’s whole physical body usually goes through the process, along with the mental and emotional parts of her makeup. Many women opt to take artificial or natural hormone replacement products in order to relieve the symptoms that accompany menopause such as hot flashes, depression, loss of libido, sore breasts, and other symptoms.
There are ten things you can do to prevent sore breasts during menopause:
If your breasts become irritated while wearing a bra, you could use soft pads to prevent your bra from rubbing.
If your bras do not fit the way they used to, they may lack the support you need and may fit too tight and rub the nipple area. Get fitted for new bras by a professional.
Use a natural progesterone cream that works to balance the effects of estrogen in the body. This also helps to eliminate water retention and swelling. Make sure you don’t use too much as this will cause your sore breasts to worsen.
Try borage oil or evening primrose oil. Rubbing your breasts with either of these oils help to reduce fat levels and make you less sensitive to hormones.
Take a good, daily multivitamin supplement that has the B vitamins, Vitamin E, magnesium, zinc and Vitamin C.
Use an herbal formula with vitex, dong quai and blue cohosh.
Detoxify your body with a combination of barberry, milk thistle or goldenseal, dandelion root, burdock root and yellow dock.
Caffeine in drinks and foods.
Dairy products as much as possible.
Meats that have been injected with hormones and other drugs and eat organic meats and chicken.
A bonus tip to preventing sore breasts during menopause is to make sure you don’t use estrogen without progesterone. You need to maintain a balance of hormones.
