Culprit #5: Your meds.

The birth control pill relieves pain in some women, but those who are sensitive to estrogen may find that it makes their breasts sore, says Dr. Minkin. Low-dose pills of 20 to 25 micrograms (like Alesse), which contain less estrogen, are least likely to cause tenderness. You should also steer clear of OTC headache remedies that contain caffeine. If you've got asthma, avoid the drug theophylline, which is chemically similar to caffeine and has some of the same side effects.
