Caffeine and Breast Tenderness

Caffeine and Breast Tenderness

It’s a question people ask. Can caffeine cause breast tenderness? The answer is absolutely. Caffeine can cause breast tenderness, and the reason it does is it actually has chemicals in it that irritate the breasts and at specific times of the month, right before the period, in particular, it can be even worse. In addition to that, caffeine can make fibrocystic breast disease a little worse. That’s where there are cysts that can actually build up. These are tender. They can be painful and they can be issues that you have to deal with and fight with.

Causes of Breast Tenderness

Breast tenderness is certainly an issue that plagues women, but it plagues them at different times of the month than others on a typical basis. Normally, what we find is breast tenderness is worse as we approach the menstrual cycle. That period of time right before the menstrual cycle is when the breasts can be more tender, especially for women who suffer from fibrocystic changes. These are lumpy breasts that actually can become more problematic at that time. Breast tenderness also can be averted in many cases with hormonal support and also staying away from caffeine.
