Welcome to HCM.
Your period was 5 days late and now presents with brown color bleeding with tender breast.
It is due to hormonal imbalance with premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
It has several symptoms like abdominal bloating,breast swelling & tenderness,fatigue,wt gain,mood swing,depression,anxiety,nausea etc mainly in 2nd half of menstruation or prior to period.
You can take several measures to overcome this like:
1)Avoid stress by yoga,deep breathing,do light exercise.
2)Avoid taking salt,caffeine in 2nd half of cycle,only take healthy diet.
3)Bowel should be clear by taking more vegetables and lots of fluid.
4)Take anti spasmodic drug like NSAIDs(Mefenamic acid or Brufen or Drotin),take OCP or Progesterone pill (Duphaston 10 mg twice daily for 10-15days or anything else) to relief from symptoms of Dysmenorrhoea.
5) Take Pyridoxine 100mg twice daily along with SSRI (like Fluoxetine 20mg single oral dose) to improve symptoms associated with PMS.
6) Can take Prime Rose capsule 1000mg daily to overcome breast discomfort.
Be well.
