Self Care and Your Breasts
It’s time to start taking care of your mind and body. After all, it’s the only one you’ve got. The past few years have been monumental for women. Never before have we seen more women standing up and stepping out to talk about women’s rights, our bodies, and the issues that we face every single day. As women, we wear a lot of hats and we juggle a lot of responsibilities. We don’t have time for setbacks, especially those that can be prevented.
Breast pain associated with your menstrual cycle is a reality for over half of all women ages 15-49. Each month, and in the weeks leading up to their period, over half of all women in this age group experience what’s known as fibrocystic breast condition (or FBC). Caused by a spike in estrogen and prolactin, along with a deficiency in iodine, breast tissue begins to swell, causing tenderness, aching, heaviness, and even pain. Some women may even experience lumps and bumps along their breasts and underneath their arms. Many women report experiencing pain when hugging, wearing clothes that are too tight, during exercise, when trying to sleep, and even during intimacy.
Changes in Your Breasts
If you are someone who has noticed changes with your breasts or have begun to experience a new onset of breast pain, here are some symptoms to be on the lookout for and contact your physician if you notice:
- Nipple discharge
- Thickening of the skin
- Changes in the size or shape of your breasts
- Inversion of the nipple
- Pain in the breast or armpit areas
- Discoloration of breast skin
