Boobs Stop Growing

Dear TeenHealthFX,
When do you boobs stop growing? I heard they stop after you have your period.

Dear Boobs Stop Growing,

 

A female's breasts generally continue to grow for approximately four years after puberty begins. Menstruation starts somewhere in the middle of puberty and does not signal the end of the growth process. So the answer is no, your breasts do not stop growing after your first period.

If you would like a more detailed explanation of breast development, see TeenHealthFX's response to How Does A Breast Grow.
