Estrogen Pill For Breast Enhancement

Published: 13 September 2004
Dear TeenHealthFX,
Hi , I'm 17 and I take the pill. My breasts are a size A and I was wondering if estrogen pill would be a bad thing for me to take. They have been like this for some time and I don't feel right. I do know that one of my relative's breasts didn't grow until she was 17. Do you think that this has anything to do with me not eating right when I was 13 and 14?

Dear Estrogen Pill For Breast Enhancement,
 

It's important to realize that your ultimate breast size is determined by your genetic makeup, which means that your breast size cannot be changed by pills, creams, or special diets or exercise. Also, after the onset of puberty, breasts usually grow for up to fours years, but some girls experience growth for up to ten years. Your breasts start to grow in response to hormones in your body and nothing besides these hormones and your genetics will help your breasts to develop. These hormones are also found in small amounts in birth control pills, this is why girls on the pill will experience some small changes in their breast size.

 

Your diet will not affect the size of your breasts, unless you are undernourished. As long as you are eating healthy and maintain a healthy weight your breast will develop to a size that is right for your body.  Breast development is a slow process that occurs throughout puberty. Every woman is destined to have different size breasts; this destiny is beyond our control.

 

TeenHealthFX always encourages our readers to look beyond physical attributes and accept themselves for who they are. The best way to do this is, is to begin with you. Looking only at flaws tends to hamper our ability to see the positive qualities that makes each one of us unique.  So try and relax and find the beauty in yourself regardless of the size of your breasts.
