Really sore breasts

I've been on HRT about 6 months.
About a week before period, my breasts get so sore- I never remember it happening before. They definitely get bigger, and feel a bit like when you finish breastfeeding- you don't want anyone brushing against you as it's so sore.
No lumps or unusual things- but really sore.

You need your HRT re-evaluating. Sore breasts like that are due to oestrogen excess.

I haven't been on HRT myself but before I had DS, I had serious hormonal problems, and oestrogen excess was one of them. My breasts used to hurt so badly from ovulation until onset of my period that I wanted to cry.

Thanks for your comments. I'm due back at drs next month so will ask. Am on very low dosage hrt, and even though boobs are sore, it's better than the hot flushes!!!
