Brief Answer:
Hello, I would be happy to help...

Detailed Answer:
There is no natural or synthetic hormone way to increase breast size. Any medication that claims that it can is just trying to take your money by giving false hope. The only way to affect breast size is with surgery, and as occurs when you are pregnant.

In addition, it is potentially harmful to take medications that might increase estrogen levels. A 21 year old should not be on estrogen pills of any kind.

I hope that this helps.

Brief Answer:
Sorry for the confusion

Detailed Answer:
If a woman takes estrogen, they will likely see an increase in breast size related to an increase in the gland size and numbers - similar to what occurs during pregnancy. But I will say again, there is NO reason for a 21 year old to be on estrogen pills.

If you can more clearly explain what the exact medication it is that is being taken and what she is treating, perhaps I can help you more!

Brief Answer:
Thank you...

Detailed Answer:
You were getting a type of progesterone monthly to get a period. This is common in women with irregularity in their cycles which is common with the onset of your cycles.

You cannot take anything to increase your breast size. Saw Palmetto and Fenugreek will NOT have this effect. There is nothing you can do to effect breast size. That is just how it is!

Good luck and thank you for the questions.

Brief Answer:
I would not count on it

Detailed Answer:
Maybe this is a short term effect, but even if it did do this, you are not going to see any long term changes. Yes, it is used to increase milk production in women who are breast-feeding, but your response when not pregnant will likely be minimal to none.

Good luck!
