Breast Pain in Menopause

Statue Lady

You might guess the lady above is thinking poetic marble lady thoughts.


She’s in a grump because her top hurts.

She hasn’t had a period for over two years, but the other day her top starting hurting like it did in her PMS days.

And so our marbled friend, while pleased about her hair and her complexion, is in a stew about the state of her boobs.

Same thing happened to my in the flesh human friend.

“To my surprise,” she wrote to me,  “2 years after no menstrual cycles, I was struck with breast tenderness! It scared me at first but then I quickly realized the all too familiar sensation. Yikes. It was a not so gentle reminder that hormones are still present.”

Consult with your doctor about any breast pain, but more often than not, it’s the result of hormones.

There’s a bit of info here, on the site 34 Menopause Symptoms.

My own pain seems to get worse after a salty restaurant meal.  I’ve never been sensitive to salt, so it’s taken me a while to figure this out.

They do say a good bra can help, although finding a good bra is a struggle in itself.

I told marble lady I’d see what we can find for her at the mall.

Now that will be an interesting shopping trip!

Anyone else experience menopausal breast pain or swelling?

Any remedies?
