🤔 It is possible because of your age you could be in perimenopause..
There are two general categories of breast pain: cyclic and non-cyclic.
Cyclic breast pain occurs at regular intervals and is related to hormonal changes that occur throughout the menstrual cycle.
Estrogen levels rise in the second half of the menstrual cycle. This increase can stimulate breast tissue, causing pain and swelling.
Estrogen levels also peak midway through the first half of the menstrual cycle, before ovulation. This can cause cyclic breast pain that worsens after a period.
Cyclic breast pain is the most common type of breast pain among premenopausal women. Breast pain is usually cyclic if it:
appears around the same time each month
affects both breasts
causes the breasts to feel lumpier
Non-cyclic breast pain is not related to the menstrual cycle, so it is not associated with any particular pattern. It may be constant or intermittent, and it usually affects only one breast.
Cyclic breast pain can sometimes cause breast soreness after a period ends. This can be the result of the peak in estrogen levels during the first half of the menstrual cycle.
However, breast soreness after a period ends can occur for a variety of other reasons.

Perimenopause is a long and twisty road with a variety of symptoms. It could certainly be related. I’m 45 too. As always, regular check ups is a good idea, if you haven’t already. Take care
