I was always a very petite girl growing up…and that held true for my bra size, too. I remember hearing my friends complain about how much their breasts hurt around their periods. They couldn’t run. They couldn’t play sports. They had to wear a softer or bigger bra for a few days. And they avoided hugs like the plague.
I felt sorry for them, but I didn’t really get it.
And then I had kids. I had five kids. And, I swear, with each pregnancy I understood their pain more and more. Don’t you just love how your body changes after having babies?
Now, I can almost always predict when I’m going to start my period based on the sensitivity in my chest.
Do you experience monthly breast discomfort?
Breast discomfort during that time of the month affects millions of women – in fact, an estimated 50 percent of all women experience this during their childbearing years – yet many do not seek out treatment because they think it’s something normal and something they can’t do anything about. For some women, the menstrual-related pain and discomfort can get so severe that it affects routine, everyday activities like exercising, work, and intimacy.
Just yesterday, I cried out in pain because my son elbowed me while he was trying to snuggle up next to me on the couch. Ouch! Snuggling shouldn’t hurt.
A few words about breast health:
- Breast tissue is composed of milk ducts, milk glands, connective and fatty tissue. Women with dense breasts have more fibrous tissue than fatty tissue. Having dense breasts affects women in two ways:
- Dense breast tissue makes it harder for radiologists to see cancer so mammograms can be less accurate in women with this condition.
- Having dense breast tissue might also increase your risk of getting breast cancer, although it’s unclear at this time why dense breast tissue is linked to breast cancer risk.
- Diet, exercise, self screenings and mammograms are all important ways that women can take care of their breast health at any age.
- Violet® iodine is an easy, non-hormone daily supplement that can also help promote breast health by proactively helping to restore the natural, healthy balance of breast cells.
- When using Violet® regularly, you can reduce the symptoms associated with menstrual-related breast discomfort.
About Violet® Iodine:
- Violet® iodine is a new, once-daily, non-hormone supplement (that’s a huge deal for me!) that is made specifically for women to promote breast health and alleviate menstrual-related breast discomfort.
- Menstrual-related breast discomfort is thought to be caused by hormonal changes that occur during a woman’s menstrual cycle. These changes can lead to the buildup of breast tissue, resulting in breast lumps, tenderness, swelling, heaviness and aches.
