This is caused by an increase of hormones in your body. It is a natural response and the pain can be alleviated with a warm towel or heating pad.

Each month your body produces hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. These hormones cause pain because they make the breasts. Each woman suffers, although everyone has various levels of hormones.


Answer by  thattractorguy (2970)

Before ovulation, there is a decreased amount of estrogen. After ovulation, the amount of estrogen increases. This increase in estrogen can cause your breasts to become tender and remain tender until your period. Breast tenderness is very common during this time. If you consume a lot of salt, sugar, and caffeine during this time, this condition worsens.

If you have breast pain, then you probably have fibroid cysts in your breasts. This is normal and does not mean that you have cancer. All it means is that your hormones cause your breasts tissue to grow and become lumpy throughout the month. You should still go to the doctor and let them check you out to confirm this.
