Battling with boob ache? Here’s five top tips to help soothe sore boobies

We all suffer from it. That week when your boobs feel like they might explode and you just can’t get comfortable. We’ve put together five top tips for battling against the boob ache we thought you might appreciate.

C H O O S E  Y O U R  B R A  W I S E L Y   | When you’re super tender around the boob area, the last thing you need is any added discomfort so make sure you choose a well fitting bra. Your breasts may increase in size at certain times of the month, so it might be an idea to get measured throughout your cycle and have a few size options in your undie draw. Under wired and push up styles can also add to the pain so a comfort bra could be ideal to get you through.

G E T  A C T I V E | Okay, so maybe running a marathon isn’t exactly what you need when your boobs feel like bricks, but getting some light exercise can help to ease the pain. Aqua aerobics is a great way to take the pressure off your boobs and get some exercise at the same time as the water gives that little bit of support and reduces the ‘bounce’. A nice walk on a sunny day or taking part in a yoga session are other examples of gentle exercise that could help ease your discomfort — just make sure you wear a good sports bra for extra support!

F I B R E  U P | Eating plenty of fibre helps your body to flush out any extra oestrogen that’s hanging around which is the main cause of the dreaded boob ache. Brocolli, cabage & kale as well as wholegrain foods are great fibre sources which can all be included in your daily diet.

C O P P A F E E L | Giving your lady lumps some attention in the form of a massage can help relieve any tension held in them and reduce inflammation. In the shower, lather up some soap and gently massage them for a few minutes from the center of your chest out to your armpits.  Alternatively use some massage oil or make your own instead of soap. Regular boobie massage will help you get to grips with what they feel like normally so that you can notice and report any changes sooner.

T A K E  A  T A B L E T |  There are lots of herbal remedies such as Evening Primrose which if taken regularly can help reduce breast pain as well as other hormonal symptoms. If you need something a little more instant, paracetamol or ibuprofen work well to combat tenderness, just make sure you read the instructions on the box regarding dosage etc.
