10 Embarrassingly Obvious Health Studies

Some health studies discover new information that we can use to stay healthy. These 10 studies do not. Among the earthshaking revelations we learn from these studies are that cigarettes cost money, cocaine and alcohol aren't good for your brain, and people are easier to recognize when they are close than when they're far away.

Hello, I have a question for fenugreek. If i stop taking the capsules will my breast size decrease?

Anonymous said...

Hi, I am 18 years old and flat chest. Will fenugreek tea help my breast to be bigger? And will it be safe for me to use fenugreek since I'm still 18?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Yes, fenugreek will help.

Fenugreek has worked for a lot of women.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Fenugreek is usually put into capsules or made into a tea.

Hi Caitlin MacKenna,

I am 29 years old, 83kg, 168cm high, and little B breast. its not enough for such a big backside i have. the shapes are not proportional. would it still make sense for me to start breast massage and fenugreek therapy to increase breast? or am i already to old? i still have no kids. i have dry fenugreek seeds at home from indian shop. can i use it in case it works? or should i buy special capsule?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

No, you aren't too old.

Anonymous said...

Wow what can I say?? I have been using and taking fenugreek alone for about three weeks and Whala I can see the results! I have increased from size B to a size c Breast size...The question is: If I keep taking fenugreek will it continue increasing breastsize and is it harmful to continue usuage? I am so happy to have found this website and have passed it along to others. Thanks!

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Since fenugreek hasn't hurt you so far, so it probably won't if you keep taking it. I wouldn't stop just yet.

Anonymous said...

Will your breast size increase just by taking 1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds twice a day? or capsule would do a better job?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

You will need to take at least twice that much.

If I stop using capsules will my breast get smaller?

I have 2 young daughters. Last one I've breast fed was 1 year and a half ago, I've started taking the capsules and I've started to lactate again and don't want an embarrassing moment of down flow at work or at the gym. Does this happen to everyone?

Anonymous said...

It's been 3 days I've started the fenugreek capsules and I find that my sweat smells like fenugreek and so does my urine. What can I do so my B.O doesn't smell so bad.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

If you can't tolerate your reaction to fenugreek, you'll have to stop and try another one of the breast enlargement herbs instead.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Lactating doesn't happen to everyone, but it's not unheard of. You may need to switch to another breast enlargement herb.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

The longer you've maintained your new size, the more likely your gains are permanent.

Anonymous said...

I have increased in bust size, it's evident! If I keep taking fenugreek and use it along with the massage technique you recommend, will my bust size increase even more?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Not forever, but for awhile.

Should I limit caffeine intake while trying to increase my bust size?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Caffeine won't directly inhibit breast enlargement, but the better your general health, the better your breasts will grow.

I have been taking Fenugreek for a few weeks and noticed a difference at first, but then it reversed. I also added wild yam, fennel and saw palmetto, which also all worked at first, but then it just stopped altogether and I noticed it reversed. I stopped taking everything. Should I take one at a time?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

One at a time is better so that you can switch to another herb after you quit responding to the previous one. You can later go back to the ones that you stopped using.

Hi I really find your site helpful I am 20yrs and am only a 34A ..I am trying the massage technique but I am not able to geta hold of Fenugreek seeds..I am only able to get fennel seeds..if I take Fennel tea and do ur massage ..will it work..and how long do I have to wait before seeing results?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Fennel is not as effective as fenugreek, so results will take longer.

am an indian girl.. we have fenugreek seeds at home for cooking. can i use these dry seeds instead of capsule or extract?you

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Yes.

kisa said...

pretty pretty please respond to this i am taking some pills its not prescribed but i am taking these pills to help me grow my hair and increase my metabolism i am takings MSN,calcium,one a day,B-12,biotin,folic acid, and some gummy vitamin can i take fenugreek with this either the capsule or the seed?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Most of the things you are taking are just nutrients that occur in food, so they shouldn't affect taking fenugreek. Just monitor yourself for side effects after adding the fenugreek.

How big will your breasts grow once you start taking fenugreek 2 capsules 3 times a day?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

It's reasonable to expect to increase 1-2 cup sizes.

Anonymous said...

am 20 yrs old and my breast is just 30... am using fenugreek and fennel bustea without licorice. am not doing any massage will it work in same way without massage also and how much can i expect in one month, am taking 2 teaspoon fenugreek twice a day. plz reply soon

Caitlin MacKenna said...

You can enlarge your breasts using only herbs, but I still recommend breast massage because it's a healthful practice to follow.

Anonymous said...

I am 24 years old n my breast is just 32. Need to increase it. I want to ask is fenugreek having any invasive effects or any side effects on kidney or any other organ.? Plzzzz reply soon as I want to start it as early as possible. N does a single cup of fenugreek tea enough for good results.?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Read my article on fenugreek for instructions. Almost nothing is safe for everyone, but fenugreek has been used as a cooking and medicinal herb for centuries.

Hi, nice to meet u :) and would like to thank you for sharing all these information with us.
I m starting to take GNC fenugreek, can i just take fenugreek alone to increase breast size? im currently taking 5 capsules of fenugreek per day, which means i consume 3050 mg of fenugreek per day. will it helps in increasing my breast size? or im taking too much of fenugreek? also, im doing the massage with fenugreek powder mix with lotion everynight. I hope you'll reply me. Thank you :)

Caitlin MacKenna said...

That's quite a lot of fenugreek, but as long it's not bothering you, I guess it's okay. Fenugreek is used in cooking in some countries.

Anonymous said...

could fenugreek help me even at 44 years old? hmmnnn, well, still wishing to have larger breast....pls reply at once. Thanks

Caitlin MacKenna said...

It should, but I haven't had much feedback from older women.

Anonymous said...

I'm 29 with 30D size but I've had 3 kids and nursed at 38DD so now I'm not as firm or as full as I'd like, will fenugreek help without bringing me back to DDs, if so will it reverse or do I take it forever.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Fenugreek should help. A change in the body needs to be in place for awhile before it becomes "permanent." You need to continue on for awhile even after you reach your goal.

Can I brake the fenugreek into ANY lotion???

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Yes.

i am taking 1mg/20mcg of loestrin24fe tablets for my birth control how does that effect the dose of fenugreek i should take

Caitlin MacKenna said...

That's a medical question that you'll have to ask your doctor.

Do you know if malted milk powder can increase breasts sizes too? If yes, would it be ok if I drink malted milk whiling taking Fenugreek and/or other herbs such as wild yam? Thanks a lot.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

My email address in on my "Contact" page. Malted milk does not increase breast size.

Seeds are fine. About a half of a teaspoon equals a capsule.

If I reach my desire bust size and I discontinue the fenugreek will this shrink me back to my initial size?..

You should continue your program for a few months after you reach your goal to stabilize your gains.

Potency varies so much, so I usually recommend starting with the dosage recommended on the bottle and increasing from there to possibly two to three times that.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

You can make a tea of fenugreek. Usually a teaspoon 2-3 times daily is a good place to start and increase the amount to maybe a tablespoon 2-3 times daily from there.

hello Caitlin:
I had my son in December I was breastfeeding but stopped. I still have milk but since im not breast feeding im not pumping. do I need to?


ive been taking fenugreek 2 capsules 3 times a day for a month and haven't seen any results so far...

my question is:
will my breast size increase even if im not breast feeding?

Please Respond
thank you bonnie

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Yes, they should. Natural breast enlargement doesn't have anything directly to do with breastfeeding.
