LOL - I understand- It is very normal as the hormones are to blame.
I use a product for PMS - which also helps with painful boobs.
You can take them from the day you ovulate(normally day 14) or 4 days before your period or the week before when you have the discomfort or start to feel irritable. Its called Femolin PMS and it is vitamins &  minerals with evening primrose oil which you can get at your pharmacy or clicks
It really helps me.
