4 Hormones Essential to Natural Breast Enlargement

As you probably know, breast growth is triggered by a precise blend of hormones. Everybody associates estrogen with breast growth, but the fact is, there are four hormones involved in natural breast enlargement:

1) Estrogen

Estrogen is the hormone most responsible for breast growth, but you can get too much of a good thing. Excess estrogen causes estrogen receptors in the breasts to shut down, which means they won't get the message to grow. The safest way to balance estrogen levels is through the use of phytoestrogenic herbs, such as fenugreek or wild yam. These herbs increase estrogen levels if they are too low, and decrease them if they are too high. (See my post Natural Breast Enlargement with Fenugreek.)

2)  Progesterone

Progesterone is another important breast enlarging hormone. Your body naturally produces progesterone each month as part of the menstrual cycle, but it can also be increased through the use of natural progesterone cream, which is derived from soy or wild yam.

3) Prolactin

Prolactin is a breast enlarging hormone produced by females during puberty and pregnancy. Prolactin helps develop the mammary glands and increases fat stores in the breasts. Prolactin can be stimulated through herbs (such as fenugreek) or by massaging the breasts. (See my post Increase a Cup Size in 30 Days with Breast Massage.)

4) Growth hormone

Growth hormone triggers the growth of the entire body, including the breasts. Growth hormone peaks during puberty and declines after the age of 25, so it's important to boost it back up to aid breast growth. Growth hormone can be increased by sleeping at least eight hours each night and by getting an intense workout several times per week.

All four hormones are essential to natural breast enlargement. If your breasts aren't growing as fast as you'd like, then make sure you're not missing one of these essential hormones.

If you've ever felt self conscious about the size of your breasts, you are not alone. To find out about the natural breast enlargement methods that can increase your breast size by up to two cups, naturally and without surgery, click here!

Can the progesterone cream be used as the lotion for the breast massage or where should this cream be applied? Also can breast enlargement herbs increase the risk of acnea? Thank you in advance.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Progesterone cream can be applied anywhere on the skin, including the breasts, but I wouldn't use it as a massage lotion. Breast enlargement herbs should cause acne in most women.

hi,
i wanted to start breast enlargement massage but i have PCOS (i take hormonal therapy) so can you tell me will the massage work for me regardless my condition?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

That's a medical question that I don't know the answer to.

Anonymous said...

Have you tried fenugreek yourself? If yes, can you pleas share your experience? Thank you!

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Yes, I did use fenugreek as part of my breast enlargement program. I didn't know nearly as much then as I know now, but I increased a cup size in about six weeks. Fenugreek caused no side effects that I was aware of.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for your prompt response! 1 cup size in 6 weeks is amazing! The following are more questions:
1) did you just take fenugreek tablets? If not, can you please share what and how much you take for your program?
2) How long can I take fenugreek tablets for? Until I get the size I want?

I am currently drinking fenugreek tea and massagen. depending on your response to my first questions, I will buy tablets and give myself 3 months to try.
Thank you v much for your help! I must tell my girlfriends about your website!!!

Caitlin MacKenna said...

I did breast massage, drank bustea, and took the minimum of fenugreek capsules - one three times daily. Three months is a good length of time to use one natural breast enlargement herb. After that switch to another for awhile.

Anonymous said...

Some people say take 1 red clover, 1 fenugreek and 1 saw palmetto capsule every morning, afternoon and night.
Should I do the above or like you start off with just 1 fenugreek capsule three times a day? I am afraid 1 fenugreek is not sufficient but also not too comfortable with taking too many herbs each day.
Also, will the herbs work for me because I have a typical pear shaped body, skinny top and big at the bottom.
 
Thank you very much!

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Try fenugreek first. It's most effective. Switch off to the others later. If you follow a natural breast enlargement program, your breasts will get larger no matter your body type.

Anonymous said...

Ok! I'll try fenugreek for 2-3 months. Give myself a month break then all the 3 three herbs together. Sounds good to you? Thanks! I will come back and you know my progress.

Anonymous said...

I am using a natural progesterone cream with prgnenolone and DHEA in addition to taking fenugreek and massaging. Is this ok?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

The massaging is definitely okay, no matter what else you're doing. Using the cream and fenugreek is probably all right. Just monitor yourself.

No need to take both. Take one or the other.

Hey Caitlin, I just ran across you website and wanted to know if I just use the fenugreek extract in my lotion with the massage routine, do I still need to take any of the other herbs orally or will this do the trick?

Thanks a bunch!

Caitlin MacKenna said...

You can try. If you don't get the results you want, then add herbs orally.

Anonymous said...

Hi Caitlin, thanks so much for giving me the push in the right direction, I was doing massaging but incorrectly! Thanks to you I have done it better and I can feel my breasts becoming fuller. Anyway, my question is, instead of ingesting wild yam in the form of tea, can I mix wild yam root powder into a paste /cream with lotions to apply on my breasts?

Also, I generally have sensitive skin, I read the first comment that wild yam may increase risk of acne? Does it mean that I'll have acne on my breasts if I were to apply?

Thank you do much

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Yes, you can put wild yam in a lotion. I don't think you're likely to get acne from using wild yam, but if you do, you can always stop.

Anonymous said...

I started the treatment with the three kinds of herbs and the massage. But I did not use progesterone cream BEFORE I begin using the 3 herbs. my questions is, when can I start using the progesterone cream?

You could stop the herbs for awhile and then start using the progesterone creamprogesterone cream.

Have you used Saw Palmetto? If so did you experience side effects and would you say it's safe to use? How much would you say to take daily? I really appreciate your help!

I haven't used saw palmetto, but it's a traditional herb in alternative medicine. It's safe for most people. You can start with a teaspoon and work up from there. I wouldn't use more than a couple of tablespoons daily.

Hello wanted to know if the fenugreek extract liquid will be as effective on breast instead of the pill ? Thanks for your help

I'm a male on a breast cream called "Breast active" and SawPalmetto (450mg X3/day) FenuGreek (450mg X3/day)and a phytoestrogen (430mg X3/day)(currently Red Clover,) and limited breast skin stretching from massage and suction devices. I realize that most of it is just oversaturaion for the 30% water soluble herbs but, I have been on this regiment for 3 months and have seen very little total growth results, no nipple growth, and no side effects except a little acne on the breasts. I am thinking about switching the red clover to wild yam or Black Cohosh to change up the phytoestogen type, and moving to a diff. progrestrin cream. Any ideas, too much, too little, I would rather avoid prescription, and surgery, I would like to increase both more full ness and larger nipples.

Yes, fenugreek can be used without breast massage. You just use the herbs to make a tea. The herbs should not cause weight gain.

SHOULD I WEAR BRA WHILE SLEEPING ?


(QUESTION 3)

AS MY BREAST ARE SAGGY WILL IT BECOME BIGGER SAGGY BREAST AFTER INZREASING THE BREAST SIZE ?


(QUESTION 4)

DOES UNCORRECT BRA SIZE MAKE THE BREAST SMALL OR SAGGY FOR EXAMPLE - IF I WEAR TIGHT BRA WILL IT MAKE MY BREAST SMALL . OR IF I WEAR A LOSE BRA WILL IT MAKE MY BREAST SAGGY ?

AND HOW MANY TIMES SHOULD I CONSUME ?

BEFORE MEAL OR AFTER MEAL ?

The way herbs are used is basically every day. I never used the cream myself, but the way I interpreted it is that you use it throughout the two weeks. I believe i'm correct, but if you're still not sure, the author Jenny Bolton has email consultation.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

You can increase your breast size with only herbs, but in your case, breast massage is also important. See my article "How to Have Firm, Perky Breasts" for more about how to improve the appearance of your breasts. Losing weight is more important than having larger breasts, but weight loss won't totally eliminate breast growth.

or will the saginess go after the breast become big ?

i want to have a round shape breast means tight round boobs .


u also mentioned that weight loss is much important rather than having bigger breast . do u mean it will be much better if i lose weight at first then grow the breast . ??


i want to have a bigger breast but i donot want to mess up for example - i m afraid when my breast will grow will it be more saggy

Good day, I would like to clarify the use of the progesterone cream. Do I use it simultaneously with the fenugreek capsules? Can you give me feedback on a standardised programme. I also lack growth on the undercarriage of my breasts...so that's where I guess the progesterone helps as it helps the glandular ducts right? But under the breasts are supposed to be comprised of more more fatty tissue. What do you recommend?

Hello Caitlin,


I am 21 years old and my breast measurement is only 29. :(

- I am currently breastfeeding, will it be alright to take the fenugreek capsule/tea?

- While i was reading some comments in this blogpost of yours, i saw people saying about "lotion", are they talking about the progesterone cream?

- Is the fenugreek approved by a doctor? (if only you have idea)

- After achieving the breast size I want, can i stop taking the fenugreek and just maintain it by doing the massage or i still have to take the fenugreek pills/tea for a lifetime? will it shrink back to my normal breast size once i stop taking fenugreek?

- I have just been injected DEPO PROVERA (contraceptive) is it ok to take fenugreek after i have been injected the said contraceptive?

- Do you know the email address of jenny bolton where i can send her inquiries too?

My interpretation is that the cream is used along with fenugreek and it applied all over the breasts. I'm pretty sure I'm correct, but the author Jenny Bolton offers email consultation if you want to check with her.

An egg or one ounch of meat, poultry, or fish usually have 7 grams of protein. Plants have some protein, but not nearly as much. You can refrigerate the tea and drink it the next day.

Hi Caitin,

Would breaking open a fenugreek capsule and mixing it with lotion be as effective as using fenugreek extract with lotion ? I ask this as I'm a bit uncomfortable about using alcohol on my breasts. Is the contents of a capsule as potent as the extract?

If doing the Boost Your Bust routine, should you stop using the progesterone cream after you've been applying it for two weeks before your period, and upon the first day of your period when you begin taking the herbs?

Is it safe to take three fenugreek capsules daily and also drink bustea? If so, how much bustea would be recommended? Additionally, is it safe to take the three fenugreek capsules along with the bustea in addition to three capsules of saw palmetto and three capsules of red clover as is recommended in Boost Your Bust?

I know you've discuss these things before but I'm still really unsure what to do! I'm unable to get through to Jenny of Boost Your Bust.
Please might you help me?

Thank you very much!

Caitlin MacKenna said...

The extract mixes better than powder. Extracts are an established way of extracting the essence of medicinal herbs. There is no reason to worry about applying alcohol to your breasts.

Yes, stop using the cream after the two-week period.

It's probably safe for most women to use fenugreek and bustea together, but you don'r really need to since you're taking the other herbs also.

Anonymous said...

Thank you, I really value your reply and great advice! The other thing I'm confused about is whether I should continue taking the herbs every day after the last day of my period (i.e. take the herbs continuously every day regardless of whether I'm on my period or not)? Alternatively should I stop taking the herbs after the last day of my period (e.g. day 7) and then begin taking them again on the first day of my next period and then stop again on the last day (day 7) etc.? Jenny says to take a recess on month four and to just use the progesterone cream during that time. Should I stop taking the herbs on the first day of the fourth period (since starting the program), and then do/take nothing until two weeks before the first day of my second period, and then start using the progesterone cream?

Thank you again - you're help is really appreciated!

Caitlin MacKenna said...

The herbs should be taken all the time. Only the cream is applied periodically.

I read in your comments that only one herb at a time should be taken... Please advise if I should carry on taking all 3 or just take 1 i.e the fenugreek for 2-3 months and then switch to another herb while still doing the massages.

I look forward to your response

Claire

Follow the instructions is Boost Your Bust. The articles I've written don't constitute a comprehensive program as Boost Your Bust is. They're a collection of methods I know. I give cautious advice to readers because who knows what else they might be taking?

This does work....I did this including goats rue tincture into the cream also fennel,fenugreek internally and externally, and internal saw palmetto... keep up at least 3 months to sustain growth...I grew probably almost 2 cups my breasts were much fuller ...now....almost 20 years later I'm a 36hh uk sizing which is a American L....obviously I'm heavier but they still continue to get bigger with age......be careful with these herbs as they can cause fibroids, ovarian cysts...weight gain and fibrocystic breasts as I experienced with red clover...iosol iodine has the effect of diming the estrogen receptor sites and preventing some of the above....you may need to incorporate that into you routine...also I have read its best to massage the breasts right after intercourse as your hormones levels are high and this will direct it to your breast tissue....above all remember that hormones are made from good fats so take ghee or olive oil....cheers...and good luck

Hi, when making a massage-cream is it ok to use the spores instead of flowers (I cannot get flowers anywhere!)? Will it have the same effect?

Thanks!!!

Caitlin MacKenna said...

No, I don't think it will have the same effect.

Is wild yam as effective as fenugreek? I bought wild yam capsule after I read your article just to try it.. I just wanna know if they have the same effect??

Anonymous said...

So should I not use it at all then? Is it enough to take the pills + progest cream?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

You can still use a massage lotion.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Wild yam is quite effective.

Than you for your help! I have Women's Cream which has wild yam extract in it so I think that can be quite good then. Thanks again.

hi caitilin. I was on a herbal programme with lots of phytoestrogens but have negative effects, weight gain around the tummy/hips, moods, irregular periods! I'd like now to JUST use fenugreek/bustea/massage and want to balance myself out with progesterone cream. Can you tell when what 2 weeks during my cycle do I take the progesterone and can I take the fenugreek the whole cycle or should I take fenugreek on the weeks I don't take wild yam cream? thanks so much.

Hi Caitlin,
I'm 22, have a 32AA bust, 27inch waist and 39inch waist. Im looking to try natural breast enlargement but am not sure where to start. which one should I try first for how long and when to switch to another one? My diet is mainly carbs, little protein, and some occasional fruits and veg- the usual college student diet. Does diet in any way affect cleavage size/ growth? I have noticed that when I gain weight, I gain it everywhere including cleavage area, but now (3 years later) it seems to only stack up in the waist and hips. thanks in advance.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Fenugreek and breast massage are good places to start with natural breast enlargement. My thirty articles give many more details. A high-carb diet is bad for your health, and anything bad for your health is also bad for breast growth. Low-carb is better for health and breast growth if carbs are replaced by protein and healthy fats.

Creme Brulee said...

I had mild endometriosis for which I had surgery nine months ago. Due to this I am off dairy, red meat, processed foods and canned or packaged foods, refined cooking oils. My diet now constitutes fresh veggies, fruits, fish (once-twice a week), legumes, lentils, beans, dry fruit(figs, dates apricots), nuts (cashews, almonds, walnuts), seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, flax seeds) and whole grains. I am completely off white sugar and flour! Since I am off meat(cause of inflammation and artificial growth hormone injections not good for endo patients), I am not sure how to make good on protein. Do you think my current diet is good enough for breast growth? or does it have too many carbs? They aren't processed carbs. I am a 32B and would like a bigger cup size. However, I cannot consume breast growth herbs internally, since I need to keep my estrogen levels in check. I have already started the breast massage. Please comment.

I'm 28 and just started taking prempro because I had a hysterectomy 2 years ago. Do you think this would work for me?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Sorry, I'm not a doctor.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Your diet is probably fine. Protein helps, but good nutrition is most important.

Hi. I am 28 and have already child, if i massaging my breast regularly during 3 month and take some herb as fennel or fenugreek can i get one or two cups??? thank u

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Adding herbs should boost breast growth.

Aggeliki An said...

hello!I've just bought the book boost your bust from jenny bolton and I don't understand something... should I take the caps of red clover, fenugreek and saw palmetto only during my period (5 days) or for the hole month? and about the progesterone cream or milk thistle, should I use it only for the first 2 weeks before my period or every month 2 weeks before my period? I'm sorry for my english :-) than you!!!

Caitlin MacKenna said...

My understanding is that the herbs are used constantly, and the progesterone cream or milk thistle monthly during the first two weeks before your period.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

I have over thirty articles on natural breast enlargement. They tell all you need to know - much more than any comment could.

Amanda Behl said...

How long do I need to continue the regimen once I reach my desired size?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

About 3-6 months although you can cut back a bit.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Neither hypnosis or breast massage can harm the baby.

Jayce Lin said...

Thx for your post, it is awesome. I just wander weather I should make myself in hormone balance first so that I can follow the nbe program.

You don't need to wait to start as long as you're healthy as far as you know.

Will taking the fenugreek make my birth control ineffective?
I heard that the fenugreek increase libido is that true?(it has decrease since I've been on bc)
I wouldn't mind having bigger boobs either lol.
Also what other herbs can I take that has similar benefits as fenugreek that won't affect my bc?
Fennel? Saw palmetto?

Sorry about the many questions? Thanks

Caitlin MacKenna said...

You will need to check with your doctor about possible herb-drug interactions.

Hi i've bought that ebook but aren't there just too much hormonal herbs in it that might actually cause breast or ovary cancer in the fututre? I'm 17 with uneven breasts , will messaging my breasts twice daily as you recommended by fenugreek oil and doing breast enhancing exercises be enough to make me increase atleast one cup size?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

It's enough for some women, but others need a more comprehensive program to get the results that they want.

Terra said...

Hi Caitlin!
I would like to ask: Will consuming fenugreek actually increase the risk breast cancer? Since fenugreek helps to increase level of estrogen, and the risk of having breast cancer is directly proportional to our level of estrogen.
Also, I bought a bottle of fenugreek capsules from this brand called GNC. Each capsule contains 610mg of fenugreek seed powder. They recommended as a dietary supplement to take one capsule daily. Hence, should I just consume 1 daily or 3 daily? If I were to consume 3 daily, will there be any side effect?
Thank you in advance :) hope to receive your reply soon!

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Fenugreek has not only been used medicinally for centuries, but it is also a cooking spice. Anything can cause side effects in somebody. Just use common sense and monitor yourself.

Anonymous said...

In the article you wrote that 4 main things are estrogen, progesterone, growth hormone and prolactin. B in the book Boost your Bust it says to take red clover and Saw Palmetto as these blocks progesterone and testosterone? But book says to use progesterone cream? So, were is logic? Yes to progesterone or no? And if yes to progesterone, then should we not use saw palmetto and red clover, but better use fenugreek and wild jam as you wrote in your article?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

You should follow Jenny Bolton's recommendations for her program.
