I've often read that caffeine can cause breast tissue to swell.  I'm wondering if any women have experienced this?  If so, can this occur on as little as 1-2 cups of coffee per day?

Hi connect,

Pre-BTD, I used to experience severe breast swelling before my period while I was drinking caffeinated coffee. And when I gave up coffee, the tenderness and swelling went away. I found that it wasn't just the caffeine, but also the acid in the coffee beans, so going to decaf didn't make much difference.

I've recently been back on the caff coffee and do notice my breasts are more sore, and not just before my period. I'm almost ready to give it up again and go back to green tea.

Hey Drea,

Very interesting....My breasts aren't sore, but I'm trying to ascertain whether the swelling is worse when I'm drinking coffee.  I find that it happens with decaf or caffeinated, so what you say about the acidic coffee beans would make sense.  I find that my breasts SEEM to swell even after one cup of coffee.  I just didn't know if I was imagining it or not....

Even though coffee is beneficial for A's, I believe I remember reading in LR the other day that 1 or 2 cups is advised; 1 cup per every six hours.  It's best to alternate with coffee and green tea consumption.  Those sensitive to caffeine are probably better off without coffee and justing obtaining the great benefits of green tea.

For myself, drinking a large cup of java can make me feel jiterry.

I never drink more than a cup a day.  I don't have a problem with the caffeine making me jittery.  I'm just wondering if it is causing breast swelling.

Alia, is this true if you drink decaf?

I know when I'm completely off the coffee (both decaf and regular) for extended periods of time that even a cup of decaf will affect me, whereas green tea doesn't. So I'm not convinced it's the caffeine per se, but something in the coffee beans themselves.

I do not own a coffee maker, so if I decide to have a very infrequent cup of coffee I'll order a small cup of organic black coffee from the HFS or co-op.

I usually stay away from decaffeinated green tea and coffee products, because of some of the procedures involved in the decaffeination process.

Yes, I think coffee bean pods contain much more potent chemicals.

I think I might agree with this.........caffeinated or decaf, organic or not, seem to all have the same effect....(if it is, indeed, coming from the coffee)

Doesn't red wine have tannins in it, too?

Yes, but I am not sure they run along the same lines.



Here at our hospital when they do the mammograms they ask if you are a coffee drinker and those who have more little lumps than others are asked to either quit or really cut back on it.  I don't have very few little lumps now and they are not tender anymore.
