Abstract : The current study employs a validated survey instrument to measure the prevalence and severity of breast pain in women receiving long-term progesterone supplementation for contraception. These results were compared with those of an age-matched control population. This study was designed to 1) provide evidence for or against a role for progesterones in the treatment and prevention of mastalgia, 2) estimate the impact of mastalgia on productivity and readiness in our active duty servicewomen, and 3) provide some insight into current perceptions of the quality of medical care available for mastalgia patients.
