Anyone else here at times feel their breasts become more ''puffy'', and like it has more feel when your walking around? Last night at work I noticed it. Not bad or a cause for concern (or so I think)

Actually I was complaining this morning about some recent increases in breast tenderness and the swelling/puffiness. My wife noticed it last night and commented on it, too. While it can be uncomfortable, it's a "problem" I'm glad to have. Comes with the territory  ;)

Hey Ashley,

My nips are extra puffy a lot of times. I love it when it happens because it means my girl juice is working. My breasts are really small though. I'm hoping once I start on progesterone they'll get bigger.

Congrats on yours doing their thing...it means they're growing!!

xoxo

Thank you for the responses!

No im not new to transition and I have been on Her-mones for a long time. But recently been feeling a more puffy sensation in my chest, hopefully meaning they are growing? Definitely not a complaint.

Lexxi, do you have a plan on when you will start P, and any particular method?

I'm not Lexxi but I had the best results from progesterone via the intimate administration route.



Yep, in the butt.  It absorbs far more effectively that way than orally.

I’ve gotten past the puffy stage.  The girls certainly were in the first year, fluctuating from small to large, especially the areola’s.  I started Progesterone about a year ago.  In fact, it’s been 1year and 3 days.  Lucy and Rhonda rounded out nicely thanks to it.  I didn’t start P until I was at about a Tanner 3.  They were a bit like a snoopy nose, much better now.

Did you see any measurable results in breast growth, or was it more like filling you boobs out and make them to be rounder?

That is what seems to be recommended, not to use the stuff before Tanner 3 or 4.  What was your result, breast growth, or more filling out and making them fuller/rounder?

Hey there Maddie,

When I went to my last appointment I had my doctor check to see what level I was at. She did and said that I was definitely a Tanner 3 but bordering on a 4. She had to go online and look up what the levels were, so that didn't make me feel completely confident that she had it right. So I went home and did as much research as I could find on the levels, and I don't think I'm anywhere near a 4 yet.

I think I'm barely a three. Dr. Powers recommends starting Progesterone when you reach level 3. So I'm at the point where I'd feel comfortable starting it, but I'm going to wait three more months before I do. I figure a little more growth won't hurt anything at all, so there's no reason to rush it.

When I do go on it though I'll be taking it rectally. If I were to swallow it my liver would burn most of it up, or make it useless somehow (I'm not sure what the medical term would be for that). I've heard that swallowing it causes anywhere from 65 to 90 percent of it to burn off. If I take it rectally I'll get all of its benefits.

I'm pretty excited to start it though. I hope it makes a big difference in my growth. I've heard a lot of girls say it did for them, and I've heard a few say it didn't do a thing. So I'm excited to see which camp I'll fall into.

I didn't see any major changes.  Boob growth was more or less like normal.

Thank you Lexxi.
I'm excited for you too!

We started HRT the same month.
Not sure what Tanner stage I am. There is some slight growth, so it's something.

I have a scrip for progesterone capsules but holding off taking them for now.  If the bottom delivery is more effective i should consider taking any help I can get..

Happy camping

That tells me that I was right to stop it.  I still blame my sudden hair loss on the stuff.  I stopped it, shortly thereafter my hair did not fall out anymore, and grew back!
I am happy with my current boobs.  They are 38D and seem to still grow a little (going by the hurt).

You take it daily of cycled?  I did oral for 11 months and nada.  Been using up my last refill using a cycle ( first 10 days of month) by the lower route. 

I can say maybe its helped. I've also finally gotten an increase in my estradiol dose. My levels there have been lower than most so I'm thinking that's been my problem.

I took it for 9 months sublingual, and also nada, except, probably hair loss!

I just took a daily dose, no cycling here.  I didn't see any ill effects either though aside from maybe being more prone to being hungry.
