Breast Discomfort

Most women feel some breast discomfort with their menstrual cycle. This is because the hormones (estrogen and progesterone) stimulate the glandular breast tissue. This may cause a small fluid accumulation in the tissue and can cause the breast tissue to be more lumpy and uncomfortable or even painful.
