Hi Shilpa,
Welcome to HCM.
Breast pain a few days prior to periods is perfectly normal and you need not worry about it.
Do regularly check for any lump formation in the breast.

Hi,Shilpa,
Your problem is likely due to premenstrual tension..
many a time one gets this type of pain like breast engorgement before or during period, so do not worry after your period it will be alright.
One point I want to highlight that have you any lump or crack on the nipple or in the breast ? If you find lump or swelling in the breast you consult your doctor.
Ok and bye.

Hi Kamala,
I think what you are taking is adequate. The pain will gradually subside. Stop worrying and have a positive attitude in life.

Hello shilpa;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Pain in breast can occassionally occur before periods in some females but it is bilateral and not on one side.Also the pain is not due to gas.If the pain is same and not increasing then check it after menses if it goes away fine if not then get examined by a Gynaecologist.If the pain is increasing day by day then get examined immediately.
Take care.
Thanks

Hi Kamala,
Take MAXAMIN FORTE, 1 tablet daily. It contains all the vitamins as well as minerals required for the body, in correct proportion.
