Why Contraception Increases Breast Size

Bigger boobsMany women take contraceptives, and many of them are often surprised at one of the side effects – bigger boobs! Perhaps you or a relative has taken birth control and experienced this. Increased breast size can either be a blessing or a curse, depending on the person. However, it is often a desirable side effect and some women take birth control for the sole purpose of increasing breast size. Whether you want bigger boobs or not, it is important to learn how birth control may affect you.

What causes contraceptives to increase breast size?
Contraceptives work by pausing ovulation through simulation of pregnancy. When you take birth control, you are tricking your body into thinking it is already pregnant. As a result, the body prepares itself for giving birth – and in doing so increases the size of the breasts for the purpose of lactation, even though no milk will be produced.

Will contraceptives give all women who take them bigger boobs?
Increased breast size is a relatively common side effect with birth control users. However, your mileage may vary. If you have a blood relative who experienced increased breast size while taking birth control, it may be more likely that you will experience that as well.

Are there contraceptives that have a higher chance of increasing breast size than others?
Yes, some pills do have a higher chance of increasing breast size. These particular pills have a much higher estrogen content than others.

However, taking birth control with a very high estrogen content can be dangerous. Large quantities of estrogen in the body can result in a higher likelihood of blood clotting. A sudden blood clot can be fatal. Additionally, high dosages of estrogen may also cause more severe mood swings, weight gain or loss, nausea, vomitting, and irregular bleeding. Such side effects do occur at low estrogen dosages, but are more likely to occur and may be more severe with high doses. Therefore, it is adviseable to be very careful when taking such pills, if you do at all.

What about the opposite? What if I don’t want my breast size to increase any more?
Some women may not want their breast size to increase. After all, there can be too much of a good thing. When your breasts get larger, you may have to get a whole new set of bras, which can be expensive. Larger breasts can also cause back pain over time.

If you do not want larger breasts, it is advisable to take a contraceptive with a lower estrogen content. It is generally recommended to take a lower dosage of estrogen, due to it being much safer than a high dosage. Be warned that even a smaller dosage can stil increase breast size, though it is far less likely to occur to the degree it may when taking high dosage pills, if it all.


Do Breast Pumps Increase Size?

breast pumpsHave you always wanted breast enhancement, but did not want to go under the knife? Well, there is now a way to get breast enhancement without surgery. It is done by breast pumps that are hidden in a bra. This device has been shown to have positive results with very few side effects. Soon you can throw away your pushup and padded bras after you learn about this breast pump enhancement device.

Brava Breast Enhancement and Shaping System

This system was developed by cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Roger Khouri, who states this is the first nonsurgical technique for increasing bust size. Dr. Khouri, as well as other doctors who developed the Brava Breast Enhancement and Shaping System state, “In most cases, breasts grow up to one full cup size after 10 weeks of wearing the bra for 10 hours a day. A board of leading plastic surgeons and tissue engineer who have worked to develop the so-called “suction bra” for more than a decade are conducting clinical trials to demonstrate its legitimacy.”

Results of Product Trials

There have been product trials performed in Miami, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. on over 200 women. One woman stated as soon as she placed the enhancement bra on that contained these special breast pumps she noticed an enlargement in her breasts within an hour. The bra will soon make its way onto the market and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has determined that it is a medical device and is allowing it to be for sale on the market. Although, they determined it is still too new to be regulated at this time.

How the System Works

The device is placed into a sports bra that contains two plastic domes with edges containing sticky silicone gel. Under the bra is a small rechargeable power pack. There is a little port at the bottom where the tubing is placed, called the “Smart Box”. It contains a pump that is battery activated and creates a negative pressure within the dome between the breast and the wall of the dome. When the “Smart Box” is activated air is pumped out and the breasts are sucked into the dome. The sucking causes the nerves and the breast tissue to grow, according to Dr. Baker, one of the developers.

Dr. Baker states that stretching causes new cells to form. When it comes on the market, why not give it a try.
