Tenderness can be due to premenstrual syndrome, birth control pills, pregnancy, or breast-feeding.
Exercises such as jogging and aerobics in improper way , can also cause breast tenderness.
Trim fat from your diet, recommend the health care providers. A diet that’s high in fat isn’t only bad for your body — it can increase breast pain, as well.
Experts believe that eating large amounts of fat can interfere with the production of chemicals in the body that are responsible for reducing breast pain. In addition, dietary fat has a way of turning into body fat, and fatty tissue has been shown to interfere with the body’s ability to regulate estrogen.
Doctors recommend getting no more than 20 to 25 per cent of your total daily calories from fat. The best way to reduce fat in your diet is to cut back on the worst offenders — high-fat foods such as mayonnaise, red meats, margarine, butter, ice cream, and cheeses.
Avoiding caffeine, reducing salt and sugar in your diet before period or taking an pain reliever are all helpful steps.
If the tenderness persists, consult your doctor.
