Home Remedies for Breast Pain During Pregnancy

Women of all ages report having breast pain, also known as mastalgia. Pain can occur before and after the menopause. However, breast pain is most common in younger menstruating women. While nearly 70 percent of women report breast pain at some point during their lives, only around 15 percent require medical treatment. The severity and location of breast pain can vary. Pain can occur in both breasts, one breast, or in the underarm. Severity can range from mild to severe and is typically described as tenderness, sharp burning, or tightening of the breast tissue. Hormonal changes due to events such as menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause can also have an effect on the type of breast pain experienced.
