Physiological changes associated with ovulation and the release of the unfertilized egg, there is a minor discomfort in the organs that perform the reproductive function. But what if sore Breasts after period. Such as exciting and requires complex examination.
What is considered the norm?
The process of ovulation is characterized by rising levels of estrogen and progesterone, promote the growth of breast cells. Increasing the volume of the breast located inside squeeze their nerves, thereby causing pain. However, the process is iterative, which disappears as the end of menstruation.

- a small nagging pain in the lower abdomen and lumbar;
- spotting does not exceed the boundary rate and duration (maximum 7 days);

Physiology or pathology?
If a week after menstruation pain persists, then it is an occasion to meet with a gynecologist or a breast.
There are the following causes of the painful condition of the mammary glands:
- the high level of female sex hormones as a residual phenomenon;
- mastalgia in puberty;
- pregnancy (ectopic or full);
- menopausal syndrome;
- hormonal disturbance due to endocrine diseases;
- injury to the breast;
- the use of drugs;
- imbalance of fatty acids in the tissue;
- parasitic infestation;
- genetic predisposition.
If the month is over, passed a certain period of time, and the breast hurts, then it may indicate an overabundance of female hormones. Their increased education contributes to the growth of fat tissues contained in the mammary glands. Note the imbalance of fatty acids in the tissue. The increase in volume causes soreness. In this period, you should think about changing a bra size larger.
Choosing the right model, with the simulation cups, durable underwire and wide straps will allow you to move this period more comfortable. Shapewear relieves pain not only in the muscles of the chest, but in the blades.
Pregnancy is one of the main reasons why sore Breasts after period. Human chorionic gonadotropin, which is produced by the body from the moment of fertilization, creates a favorable environment for gestation. Painful gland — one of the symptoms of its presence in the body.
Enlarged and painful breast see and ectopic pregnancy that requires hospitalization. Spotting spotting, dragging pain in the abdomen and in the ovary region, with increased breast volume may be present in the early stages of pregnancy. This complicates its detection.
Hormonal disturbances observed in the period of menopause, in most cases, cause an increase in hypersensitivity and chest.

If after a month began to a sore chest for the first time, we can not rule out parasitic infection, especially in cases where there were prerequisites for infection (contaminated water and food).
Hereditary predisposition to the formation of pathological changes, you should be attentive to any modifications in the area of glands and nipples. The use of tumor markers can confirm the presence of malignant tumors. Even in cases when the test is negative, the conducting of complex examination — a mandatory procedure.
Especially exciting when the sore nipples, there are purulent or bloody discharge from them after a month. When such symptoms does not exclude the development of serious diseases, life-threatening.
