Home remedies for Breast Pain

Most women with moderate breast pain are not treated with medications or surgical procedures.

The following suggestions have been shown to reduce breast pain in some women (although there is not sufficient scientific evidence to establish the effectiveness of any of these suggestions):

  • Wear a good, supportive bra to reduce breast movement. Many women with breast pain find it comfortable to also wear a bra while they sleep.
  • Limit sodium intake.
  • Reduce caffeine intake (coffee, tea, soft drinks, chocolate).
  • Maintain a low fat diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and grains.
  • Maintain an ideal weight. Losing excess weight may reduce breast pain by stabilizing hormone levels.
  • Occasionally use over-the-counter pain-relief drugs such aspirin, acetaminophen, or Motrin.
  • Take vitamins. Some women have found that taking Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), Vitamin B1 (thiamine), and Vitamin E relieves breast pain.
  • Try evening primrose oil. Some women have found that regular consumption of the herb, evening primrose oil, in liquid or tablet form reduces breast pain.
  • Cyst aspiration. Physicians sometimes drain benign (non-cancerous), fluid-filled cysts to relieve breast pain. It may not be possible to drain very small cysts.
  • Relax... Some breast pain can be caused by stress and may subside by reducing anxiety and tension.
