How often?

  • In the beginning it is best to examine your breasts once a month, best one week after menstruating. This is the easiest time to examine your breasts.
  • Some women suffer from painful and swollen breasts prior to menstruating. At that time small lumps may be felt, but they usually disappear naturally after your period.
  • If these symptoms do not disappear spontaneously, you should see your doctor for further examination.
  • Once you are familiar with your breasts, you can do a self-examination every three months. This still allows you to detect changes in time.
  • Women who no longer menstruate better do it on a fixed day of the month.
