    I take menopausal support as I get very tired, down and snappy. It helps. I am 47 and think I have been premenopausal for about 3 years. I do not have periods anymore! It's tough but accepted it now- nothing I can do about it apart from go through it and come out the other side !

      Hi Tracey Breast pain is very common in the menopause and usually caused by fluctuating oestrogen levels. As your periods have ceased, using a soya isoflavone supplement such as our Menopause Support can often be of benefit. Dehydration (especially if you are getting flushes and sweats) and constipation can be contributory factors, so do make sure that you are drinking plenty of plain water every day. Tea, coffee, fizzy or sugary drinks can make symptoms worse so are best avoided! Some women find changing from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant can help, - blocked sweat glands in the armpits may affect the lymph drainage in the breast area! Have you had yourself measured properly for bra size? In and after the menopause breast tissue, size and shape can change quite dramatically and an ill fitting bra, especially if you wear under-wired ones, can cause breast pain too! Most big department stores offer a free service so it would be worth checking out. It is important to get any breast changes checked out by your doctor so do make the time, worrying about this can put more stress on your nervous system and this can make flushes worse. Hopefully the doctor will put your mind at rest.

      Hi Debbie This is a difficult question to answer as it is different for every woman. Some may only experience symptoms for a short while and others can get them for a long time. However, looking after yourself well, having a good, varied diet, lots of water and plenty of rest and relaxation can often go a long way in helping to keep symptoms to a minimum!
