Tender breasts WAY after menopause
An_205917 posted:
I am 54 and went through menopause about 4 years ago. Zip, nill, void... Just within the last 2 weeks I've been experiencing very sensitive, tender, painful breasts, the feeling of a period coming on. Is this normal after menopause?
mbachia responded:
It can happen. Have you been under more stress than usual or drinking more coffee, eating more sugar? Sometimes women will have a period out of the blue this way just like sometimes a woman will get pregnant out of the blue years after experiencing periods. It's a low percentage but does happen.
