Hormonal water retention

Hello! Every month halfway through my menstrual cycle I get painful, heavy breasts. Sometimes I also feel like there is a lot of extra fluid in my tummy, roughly at the height of my belly button. Years ago I saw the GP for this and got some diuretics, but they didn't do much. I was wondering if anyone else gets this and, if so, whether you have found any tips or tricks to relieve the symptoms? It can last up to 10 days if I'm unlucky and whilst it's not painful, it is rather annoying and uncomfortable.
