In brief: Analgesics/Hormones

You may treat yourself with over the counter Ibuprofen or acetaminophen.
You may also talk to your doctor and consider hormonal therapy such as the birth control pill.

In brief: Nutritional help.

Breast tenderness can be decreased by decreasing caffeine in your diet .
For some patients with hormonal imbalance, evening primrose oil capsules help to decrease breast tenderness. If this is present at other times in the cycle and is unilateral (one side), it will need to be checked by a physician.
