In brief: Breast pain&periods
The brest pain during and before periods is caused by hormonal imbalanace, i will recommend first of all lifestyle changes like low fat diet, avoid caffeine, tea and chocolates, avoid salt one to two weeks before the periods and exercise vigourosly daily.
You may try supplements like vite, b6, and primrose oil.If that does not workbirthcontrol pills, provera, (medroxyprogesterone) danagel, bromocriptine and last resort tamoxife.

In brief: Try ...
A support bra, even to bed for the few days surrounding cycle.
Vitamin e, primrose oil, reduced caffeine intake have also helped some. Cyclical breast pain will usually resolve over time. I would not use any prescription remedies.
