I am 50. Just had all testing done in December all normal. Biopsy, transvaginal ultrasound, etc. My period is erratic, staining now light on and off but no real period in two months. Feels like I am always getting it, bloating, light cramping and breast tenderness and enlargement. Though I understand, what can I do about the larger uncomfortable breasts and why is that happening?

hormone changes in your body can cause these symptoms of bloating and cramping and breast tenderness.

at your age, you most likely are going through perimenopausal hormone changes.

you can take a birth control pill daily which can help your hormone levels stay more consistent.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
