Brief Answer: Possibly Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Yes, some women may experience breast pain during perimenopausal period. This occurs due to hormonal fluctuation during this period. Some general measures can help in decreasing the pain, like: - Decreasing caffeine, salt and sugar intake. -Increasing intake of high fiber diet, green leafy vegetables etc. -Taking supplements of vitamin E, B complex etc. -Using well fitting inner wear -Routine exercises like walking, breathing exercises etc. You can use ice packs to control the pain. If pain persists even after doing all these things, once consult gynecologist. By examination and sonomammogram, possible cause of the pain can be identified. And treatment can be taken accordingly. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.
