Breast tenderness means that you do not have the ability to properly detoxify estrogen. Your breasts are full of estrogen receptors and these receptors love water. There is increased estrogen in your cycle during ovulation and the last week before your period. This estrogen, like all hormones, must be detoxified by your liver. If the liver already has its work cut out for it due to other hormones keeping it busy or digestive issues (90% of the job of the liver is to detoxify the bowel), then the estrogen must wait its turn. And what better place to hang out than in the breast tissue. The increased water and swelling is what causes the tenderness. This is a very common daily occurrence for many women due to the inability of the estrogen to be detoxified.
