In brief: Breast pain

Is caused by hormone fluctuation between our cycles.
The breasts are glands and as our cycle prepares the uterus for a baby, the breasts also prepare. Sometimes we become tender, swollen, cystic, harder in our breasts in different times of the cycle. It does not signify pregnancy or an abnormality.
