Doctor:Ok. When was your last menstrual periods?

Doctor:Ok. Since when did you start having this pain in breasts?
User:It's been nearly 10-15days
Doctor:Let me explain.
User:Before also I used to get it...but it was not regular
User:Yes plz
Doctor:It is common to have pain in breasts during menstrual periods. Sometimes the pain starts a few days before the period starts.
Doctor:Some people do experience breast pains during the middle of the cycle too.
User:So that means there is nothing to worry about
Doctor:Moreover, when the pain is in both the breasts, most common cause will be due to minor changes in the hormone levels.
Doctor:With your history, it does not seem to be anything to be worried about.
Doctor:You can wait till your periods are over. Wait for 2-3 days after that.
Doctor:If the pain is still there, then get it examined by a gynecologist, just to be on the sure side.
