Some women experience frequent pain in the breast. Sometimes, it might be something negative while most times, it is just symptoms to something our body is reacting to or an activity. Causes of breast pain are many when numbering but we have done justice to the most common ones here.


Here are some causes of breast pain you probably don’t know about;

1. Stress

Just like it can alter your menstrual cycle, severe stress can also be behind that mysterious breast pain. Emotional stress can create hormonal imbalances, leading to cyclical breast pain, even when you’re not on your period. Breast pain can increase or change its pattern with the hormone changes that happen during times of stress. If you feel pain in both breasts, it could simply be hormonal pain, as hormones tend to affect both breasts equally.

2. Your period

Breast pain comes and goes with your cycle and is caused by the monthly hormonal shifts you experience. Some women are more sensitive to these changes than others- so they regularly experience this pain, while some only experience it randomly or even never.

3. Medications

Any hormonal medication, especially birth control is one of the common causes of breast pain, because you’re getting a dose of hormones different from what your body normally sees. Although the exact mechanism behind this isn’t well understood at this point, we do know that some women definitely notice breast pain with these drugs. Other drugs that can cause similar pain include those prescribed for high blood pressure, hair loss, or acne.

4. Your bra

An ill-fitting bra will definitely cause breast pain. Often, that’s due to underwire pushing into the tissue of your breast in a really uncomfortable way. Jostling your breasts around can aggravate the tissue and cause pain no matter the size of your bust. But bra-related breast pain is more common with women who are large-breasted or do vigorous types of activity, like running. That’s why it’s always important to make sure you have the support you need for whatever activity you’re doing.

5. Infection

Breast infections are most common among women who are breast-feeding. These can form within the tissue of the breast (in a condition called mastitis). But they also happen if milk gets backed up in the milk duct, causing a buildup of bacteria. Women who aren’t breast-feeding can still get breast infections, though they are less common. In these cases, the infection is often traced back to some sort of damage to the nipple, including piercings.
