Did you know that recent survey revealed that 87 percent of women think this discomfort is normal? I had no idea that it wasn't normal because I have had breast discomfort for years but I thought that it was just something that I had to deal with. In fact, 81% have not consulted a doctor about their breast discomfort or tenderness and I was in the 81% until recently when I asked my doctor about it.
Menstrual-related breast discomfort is thought to be caused by hormonal changes that occur during a woman’s menstrual cycle. These changes can lead to the buildup of breast tissue, resulting in breast lumps, tenderness, swelling, heaviness and aches. I would get these aches the week before getting my period and many times I thought that I was pregnant because it felt a lot like that. Although I knew I wasn't pregnant, that breast discomfort made me question that.
Breast discomfort is normal and this condition affects millions of women – in fact, an estimated 50 percent of all women experience this during their childbearing years – yet many do not seek out treatment and view it as a normal occurrence each month that they have to accept. In some cases, the discomfort can be so severe that routine, yet important, everyday activities are disrupted – including intimacy and other physical, social and school activities.
Violet iodine is a new, once-daily, non-hormone supplement that is made specifically for women to promote breast health and alleviate menstrual-related breast discomfort. With the introduction of Violet iodine – the only non-hormone iodine supplement specifically designed to address menstrual-related breast discomfort — millions of women need not suffer and can now proactively manage their breast health.
