Sore Breast...ouch!

Good morning sisters...
I have been taking tri-est and progesterone compounded creams now for years. Within the last month I have been experiencing very sore breast which I have not had before. Has anyone else had these symptoms? Tweetee

Hi Tweetee The sore breasts are often a sign of estrogen dominance. Where do you apply your creams? I had the soreness when I wasn't using any progesterone, and it went away when I started using a little progesterone cream on my breasts at night.

Linda...I use the estrogen...1.25mg/0.1ml ( apply 0.2ml daily) on the right side of my body, inner arm, inner thigh and butt and the progesterone...200mg/ml(apply 0.5ml daily) on the left side of body inner thigh, inner arm and butt. I change the areas but always keep each on the one side. I didn't know you could apply to breast...I always stayed away from that area...thanks for your input..tweetee

(((tweetee))) you can put progesterone on your breasts, but not estrogen. For more info on this, I would recommend Dr. Lee's book, "What Your Doctor Might Not Tell You About Breast Cancer", which is a useful reference on breast health (not just cancer ).

Sore Breast...ouch!

Hi surferbabe! I have run into the sore breast problem and from your past post's have started using a pea size dab on a breast almost everynight--the only problem is the one that I don't use it on is always sore till it's turn the next night. Also it seems to make them abit 'flabbier' Does progest. do that? Do you think that I should use more and get both sides? It's funny since my hyst. I need estrogen/progest. pills to keep the 'whole me' working, vagifem to keep the 'lower me' working and progest. cream to keep the 'upper me' comfy lol --next I might need some menapausal fix for my feet!

Hi I use only a tiny bit and do both each night. If you otherwise feel good on the amount you're using, I'd try splitting it in half and hitting both. I don't think progesterone makes them flabbier, but estrogen alone makes them firmer - which looks nice but might not be so good for us

thank you! I just figured I had to rotate like when I was using the creams for estrogene and the prog. just to feel normal. It will be great to go threw days with both of them not bieng sore! Its amazing how I can be sore but as soon as I rub some prog. on the pain is gone! I am so glad you had mentioned it!
