Menopause

Stopped taking premarin

10/23/2007

Question:

Is it normal for my breast to have become sore since I have stopped taking my premarin and if so what can I do?

Answer:

Breast tenderness is usually not related to stopping hormone therapy.  It is not well understood why women get bouts of breast tenderness throughout their adult years.  Some women obtain relief by discontinuing caffeine and chocolate, but that does not help everyone.  Use of Evening Primrose Oil has helped some women, but not all.
