Hi. Is it worth asking for progesterone tablets or similar. I am 2 years post op. 3 years on oestrogen and breasts have stopped growing at B cups a year ago. Will I ever get them bigger ?

I am on P for quite some time now. Progesterone will not increase your breast growth, it might help to fill your breasts out more, i. e., make them rounder. I don't have seen much of it. I just ran across some research indicating that progesterone is more effective when taken with fatty foods, The practice of taken oral progesterone rectally seems to have no benefit if the P is not specially formulated for this. In that case it can also be taken vaginally, which is less messy. Otherwise the oral stuff should be taken with fatty foods for maximum benefits. I did not do that, and will start to make sure I do it in the future.

I am taking progesterone rectally to try to get from Tanner 3 to Tanner 4. Early on, it increased the size of my nipples, but doesn’t seem to have done much since. Progesterone is hit and miss for most people, no matter how they take it.

Hugs,

Allie

Allie, the papers I read clearly say that oral P taken rectally has no benefit. Rectally needs to be formulated for this, and it can also be taken vaginally. Oral P should be taken with fatty food to be most effective.

I asked my doctor for Progesterone because I have never quite gotten to a full A cup. She gave me the prescription, but I didn't get any breast growth. She warned me that it can be a bit androgenic, and I did notice that my thoughts and emotions were more like before I started HRT. So I quit taking it.

@Melanierose, as Allie mentioned, it is hit and miss from one person to the next. I added progesterone (micronized prometrium) to my HRT regimen 15 months ago, and it has given my breast a huge burst in growth, and is still working to this day. You won't know if it will work for you until you try it. Talk to your doctor first.

Hugs!

I think we all have those moments, and many cis women do, to. My ex was for sure one of those, and she had about as much as I have, and that is a 38 D/40 C, but still growing, I am afraid (I don't want much more). I do not know if this overfilling the bra cup is growth or filling out progesterone related. Everything in this area happens so slow now that I am Tanner stage 5, watching gras grow is for sure a way more exciting past time.

@ Allie
That is fine, you do what you feel is good for you, you know your body way better than I do, or any of the researchers I got my information from.
