Breast pain - likely to resolve?

Been taking Femoston 1/10 for six months now. Recently developed breast pain - sometimes shooting, sometimes constant low level. Do I need to try another HRT or is it likely to subside?

It depends on what is normal for you. Are you still in peri and could it be part of PMS?
How often does it happen?

I've never heard of this after 6 months- breasts sometimes get a bit bigger on HRT and may be sore at first but TBH I think you should see your GP for an examination because it may not be linked at all to HRT anyway.

Any chance it could be muscular? Been doing any different exercise?

I’m still in peri, this seems to happen on both parts of the HRT sequence so don’t think it’s PMT. I had a breast exam when I got my first prescription so don’t think it could be anything sinister. I’ve ordered some Starflower oil to see if that helps.
