Breasts may swell about a week to fortnight before your periods start. This is due to the fact that elevated levels of estrogen, as well as progesterone, may cause breast tissue within the body to change. Elevated estrogen might cause the breast ducts to become larger while progesterone may affect the milk glands on the breast to swell. This is the primary reason that breasts become enlarged and also tender during PMS. Conium and Bryonia is one of the best remedies for breast tenderness during PMS in homeopathy and has been reported to be very effective.
