Breasts can become tender before menstruation as a result of hormonal imbalance, higher levels of estrogen can cause the ducts of the breasts to swell and become tender. This is a common symptom of menstruation but shouldn't be considered normal, it can be reduced by regulating hormones or if it continues you should talk to your doctor about the problem.
