5 Tips to Prevent Breast Pain and Hair Loss

Breast pain and hair loss are two common side effects of the contraceptive pill that many women suffer from. If you’re experiencing either or both, don’t panic! There are several steps you can take to prevent both conditions.

Here are five tips to help keep breast pain and hair loss at bay if you’re currently on the contraceptive pill, or to help avoid getting them in the first place if you’re not.

1) Breast Massage

Breast Pain and Hair Loss

Breast massage can help reduce breast pain because massaging your breasts stimulates blood flow, which improves circulation. Massaging your breasts also helps remove toxins from your body (which has been linked to hair loss).

And let’s not forget that massaging any body part can lead to relaxation, which many women find calms premenstrual breast pain.

If you’re not sure how to massage your breasts properly, a Google search will give you some helpful pointers. Some good keywords are: breast massage, breast self-exam, or breast health.

If you have further questions about breast health or breast massages, talk with a medical professional. You might even ask if they offer breast massages as part of their appointments!

2) Healthy Diet

Your breast tissue is largely composed of fatty tissue. If you consume too many simple carbs, it can make your breast tissues swell with fat, leading to breast pain. A well-balanced diet will help keep your breasts firm while keeping them nourished with important vitamins and nutrients that promote healthy hair growth.

In addition, exercise has been shown to slow down hair loss in women who are genetically predisposed to male pattern baldness; if you’re concerned about hair loss, consider a brisk walk or swim laps every day. And while some people claim that a breast lift is as easy as lifting weights or doing sit-ups you definitely should not try!

3) Exercise

Studies show that exercise is important in preventing both breast pain and hair loss. Exercise helps keep your body healthy, reducing stress and improving self-image. While we all have busy schedules, there are lots of different types of exercise you can try.

These include weight lifting, swimming, running, yoga or any other activity that gets your heart pumping for a sustained period of time. You should also try alternating between aerobic exercises that get your heart rate up for an extended period (like jogging) with strength training (weight lifting).

This kind of exercise program will help keep your breasts healthy while also working toward losing weight—all good things!

4) Hormone Balancing Techniques

It can be hard to know what’s causing breast pain and hair loss, especially because many causes are connected to changes in hormone levels.

In women, there are three primary culprits: high estrogen levels that cause breast tenderness and swelling as well as hair loss; low estrogen levels that result in painful breasts; and progesterone deficiency that causes symptoms such as painful cramps, heavy periods, and thinning hair.

5) Sleep Better

You should be getting seven or eight hours of sleep a night. When you don’t get enough shut-eye, it can trigger an increase in stress hormones that mess with your levels of estrogen and progesterone, two important hormones related to breast health.

As if that weren’t scary enough, poor sleep can also lead to an increase in hair loss. If you wake up exhausted and stressed every morning, prioritize some quality Zzzs!
