They can go away on there own. They seem to be bothersome right around your cycle. They start to go away when you reach menopause.
what about pregnancy? i am pregnant at the moment and in severe pain from cysts? is this common with the hormone fluctuations?
Definitely .. your body is experiencing hormonal changes related to your pregnancy. Breasts become unusually tender even without the presence of cysts during a pregnancy.
That sounds reasonable to me.
There are dietary changes you can make that will reduce cyclic pain and swelling. I tried them and they do work if you stick with them. Eliminating or significantly reducing caffeine and chocolate intake is important. Then add in vitamin E. I think one of the B vitamins helps too, but it's been a while and i can't remember which one. Maybe B6.
Of course you should check with your doctor before ADDING supplements to your diet while pregnant, but I certainly can't see a doctor objecting to you REMOVING caffeine.
