Hugs Shouldn’t Hurt | We’re Talking About Breasts Here



Back in college, I had a month where I noticed my breasts really hurt. So much so that I went to the doctor because I thought I had found a lump. It turned out (thank goodness) that I had very dense breast tissue. He told me to lay off the caffeine (I hardly had any and now have none) and exercise. It helped a little, but the girls were still really tender. When I started to pay attention, it was more than just discomfort sporadically. It was actually cyclical. Like menstrual cycle cyclical.

They are just so painful, it is like having melons mounted on my chest.

{It’s a good thing he loves me, because this has been stored just waiting for the right occasion!)

I didn’t even want to be hugged during certain times of the month. And, if somebody bumped into me…OUCH!

Violet® supplements

There is now a new over-the-counter supplement called Violet® Iodine that was created to alleviate the symptoms of breast discomfort and promote breast health. Yes, a supplement to help with that discomfort!

  1. That’s cool. I have super dense tissue also, thankfully they don’t hurt though. It has made for a scare for lumps though. I’ll have to check it out and read more on it.

  3. I know exactly what you are talking about. I can’t stand that time of the month because for me this doesn’t occur every time so I don’t know when to expect it. It is such a pain in the neck. Thanks for sharing this product.

  4. I was so intrigued by this when you told me about it. I really want to try it!
