Growing girl’s breast related concerns


What are the changes which occur in the breasts during menstruation?

Many women experience in their breasts cyclical changes such as the swelling, pain, and tenderness just before menstruation. This is normal and occurs due to the influence of hormones- estrogen and progesterone.


When should a girl’s breasts start growing?

It is important to understand that there is a lot of variation in the normal timing of breast growth. For example, it is normal for breasts to start growing as early as nine years of age and it is also normal if they do not begin growing until 14 years of age.

How big should breasts be?

From a health perspective, there is no ideal breast size. Some of us are tall and some short. Similarly, some girls have large, medium, or small breasts.

If your mother and sisters have small breasts will you have small ones too?

There is some genetic component to breast size. However, there are some health professionals that argue about this. It is not uncommon within one family to see sisters or mother and daughters with very different breast sizes.

Is it normal to have different sized breasts?

Having different-sized breasts is perfectly normal. It's quite common for girls to have different-sized breasts or nipples, especially as they develop during puberty.  Everyone's different, and no two women's breasts will look exactly the same. In fact, asymmetry — where one body part, like a foot or a hand, is a slightly different size or shape from its partner — is quite common in humans. In such cases supportive bras or special inserts that make their breasts appear more equal in size. Can be helpful.

What is to be done if one’s breasts are small and flat ?

The breast is made up of glands and fatty tissue. Since it is the amount of fats that determines the size of the breast, one way of enlarging the breasts is by putting on more weight. This can be done by  increasing one’s intake of protein rich foods such as  pulses- soyabean, rajma etc,  eggs, milk, non-veg items and healthy carbohydrates such  chappatis,  brown bread, rice, nuts etc. Exercise can enlarge the 'look' of the breasts, not by adding fat to breast tissue, but by enlarging the muscles beneath the breasts.
