During periods women can experience changes in the breasts such as swelling, tenderness, soreness, and a change in texture.

Dr Poonam Khera, senior consultant Gynaecology, explained that these changes happen in the breast due to increased dilation of the ducts present there under the effects of the oestrogen and progesterone.

Increase in oestrogen during your cycle can enlarge your breast ducts and the progesterone rushes a week before your period can make the milk glands swell.

It is not something women should worry about but it can cause issues like sleeplessness and moodiness.
