Why do my breasts get very sore before my period starts? I've always wondered this. Do any ladies here have the same problems?

Yes, that's a common symptom of PMS - mostly caused by fluctuating hormones that increase water retention. Cutting back on sodium (which can increase bloating) and caffeine (which dilates blood vessels) can help by not adding even more to the bloating. Some people also say that cutting back on animal fats can help.

Having Evening Primrose Oil can be helpful to reduce the symptoms of breastsoreness while what Toosie comments is gold standard for the management - reduce SALT to reduce swellings and pains.

Every woman that I ever knew had sore breasts before their periods. Sometimes worse than others. It has to do with increased estogen levels. The uterus is getting ready to receive a fertilized egg. When that doesn't happen, you have a period and the hormone levels drop until next month.
