Best time of month for breast self exam during menopause

As a 52 year old who hasn't had a period in 6 months, do my dense breasts still vary during the month? When should I do a self exam?

Hi Anon,

When you are post-menopausal, Self Breast Examinations should be done on the same day each month. So, if you were performing them a few days after your period ended. You can continue performing them around the same time just make sure it's the same day each month-- make it an easy day to remember. 

Best Wishes!
