Bigger breasts are desired by women of all ages and are a mark of enhanced beauty, self-esteem and feminity. Did you know? An average woman’s breast size changes 6 times throughout her life? While medical innovations have made way for surgical enhancements, it does come with a hefty price tag and other challenges. Now comes the main question. What is the other way to go about it? Is there a way for you to increase your breast size, naturally? The answer is, yes, you can.
They say you inherit your breast size from someone in your family. So in reality there is little you can do to correct their size. While a lot of it depends on your genetic make-up, lifestyle and body weight, exercising right, adhering to a strict lifestyle, eating right, massaging and enlargement techniques are some of the ways which a woman can adopt to have fuller, perkier breasts as well as increase their size. There are many natural ways which can be given a try.
What is Fenugreek?
Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is an annual herb with yellow flowers and seed-containing pods that are native to Asia and the Mediterranean. The seeds have been used throughout history for cooking, flavoring, and healing. Fenugreek has a strong flavor of maple, so much so that it’s a common flavoring in imitation maple syrup. In their raw form, however, fenugreek seeds taste bitter; heating or roasting reduces the bitterness and brings out the sweetness. For centuries, fenugreek has been taken to promote health and well-being. It was used to treat digestive and respiratory ailments, and it has a long history of use in women’s health to induce labor and help with childbirth, and as a treatment for gynecological issues like painful menstruation and uterine problems. While other benefits are being studied, today fenugreek is most widely used and researched for two purposes: as a galactagogue, something that can help a breastfeeding mother increase her breast milk supply, and as a way to reduce blood sugar levels in people with diabetes.
Does Fenugreek Increase Breast Size?
Breasts grow in response to the hormones estrogen and progesterone. As you enter puberty, levels of these hormones increase. Your breasts begin to grow under the stimulation of these hormones. Hormone levels also change during the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and menopause. Estrogen is produced by the ovaries in the first half of the menstrual cycle. It stimulates the growth of milk ducts in the breasts. Fenugreek is a highly hormonally active herb and increases estrogen rapidly, Studies have shown that fenugreek seeds have the capability to improve estrogen level and can be used as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy or HRT.
How Does Fenugreek Work For Breast Enlargement?
Estrogen and progesterone are the only natural hormones we know of that increase breast size. But as you may know, studies have linked excess estrogen and progesterone with breast cancer, heart disease, and stroke in postmenopausal women. These hormones may be prescribed in medications such as oral contraceptives and postmenopausal hormone therapy, but they’re not approved for breast enhancement. That leaves a variety of “natural” breast-enhancement products that don’t require a prescription or FDA approval. The ingredients usually fall into a major category (phytoestrogens), a group of plant-derived chemicals and herbs traditionally used for women’s menstrual or reproductive complaints.
Research has shown that Fenugreek seeds contain phytoestrogens with estro-genic activity that would allow an increase in the uterine weight, epithelial cell proliferation and vaginal cornifica-tion. Phytoestrogens may elicit estrogen-like effects through estrogen receptors that abound in target tissues. Fenugreek safely and naturally stimulates tissue growth resulting in bigger, firmer, and fuller breasts. Fenugreek is often used in many teas and other products that help balance women’s hormones and/or enlarge the breasts. Therefore, a simple home remedy for breast enlargement is to make Fenugreek a part of your regular diet. A common suggestion is to consume up to 3g of Fenugreek seed per day. It also helps to fırm sagged breast. Here are other ways for natural breast enlargement using Fenugreek:
In How Many Days Does Fenugreek Increase Breast Size?
Generally, when it comes to impact on breast you will notice an increase in production of milk 24-72 hours after starting the herb, but it can take two weeks for others to see a change. Some women do not see a change in milk production when taking fenugreek. Dosages of less than 3500 mg per DAY have been reported to produce no effect in many women either in milk production or enlargement of the breast.
What is the Dosage of Fenugreek for Breast Enlargement?
Fenugreek is available as seeds, capsules, and tea. Because the seeds are bitter (heating sweetens them), fenugreek may best be taken in capsule or tea form. Debitterized powders are available, but even they’re often considered unpalatable without the addition of a flavoring agent.
Wide-ranging dosages and differing preparations have been used in studies, so there is no single recommended dose. Anecdotal evidence suggest that it can increase your breast size if you take it as recommended but you have to take about 2000-3000mg daily for awhile to get those effects and you have to keep taking it to maintain whatever growth you want.

How to Prepare Fenugreek for Breast Enlargement?
To make fenugreek tea, place one to three teaspoons of fenugreek seeds in eight ounces (one cup) of boiling water. You can drink fenugreek tea up to three times a day.

When taken as directed, you can typically expect to see an increase in your breast milk supply within one week. Actually it can increase your breast size if you take it. It will help stimulate and increase your milk supply, thus increasing your breast but you have to take about 2000-3000mg daily for awhile to get those effects and you have to keep taking it to maintain whatever growth you want.
Take one fenugreek capsule 2 – 3x a day until you see results. However, it is recommended not to exceed the recommended dosage. You can find fenugreek capsules in any health food stores.
Herbs that are absorbed through the skin are even more potent than herbs that are swallowed. That’s because the liver must first process anything you swallow. Since the liver breaks down 80-90% of all substances that pass through it, your body only gets to use 10%-20% of the herbs you take by capsule. Herbs that are absorbed through the skin, on the other hand, bypass the liver and go straight into the blood stream. This means that your body gets to use ALL the nutrients they contain.
What To Do:
- Combine 2 cups of water and add 2-3 tbsp of fenugreek seeds and add a dash of spices like fennel seeds, licorice, anise or caraway. You can also add a few drops of black seed oil to reap over 100 other health benefits. Black seed oil for weight loss is another one many women have found helpful.
- Allow the mixture to boil and simmer for 5-10 minutes and turn the stove off. Let it cool down and strain before drinking.
- For those who have zero tolerance with the taste, you can add some honey and lemon juice to enhance the flavor.
- Drink 1-2 cups a day for best breast-enhancing result.
Fenugreek Extract Lotion
Since your body cannot absorb solids, you will need to use a liquid herbal extract. You can either purchase fenugreek extract from a health food store, or use some of the water from your Bust tea preparation (as mentioned above).
What To Do:
You can get the fenugreek seeds extract by boiling them in the water ( as per “bust tea” instructions above). Boil 2 cups of water and add 2-3 tbsp of fenugreek seeds. Simmer for 10-15 minutes and turn the stove off. Combine 1 part of fenugreek extract with 2 parts of body lotion. Massage the mixture to your breast 2x a day for best result. Smooth skin, one of the primary benefits of argan oil, can be achieved with a few drops of argan oil into the mix.
How To Massage:
- Put some lotion and rub your palms together to create warmth, place them on your breasts and rotate them towards the middle of your chest.
- Your rotations should last 2 seconds, and do them for about 15 minutes, or 300 rotations.
- We also found that massaging the sides, upper and lower tissues independently in addition to the full breast rotations have been very beneficial.
- Always rotate TOWARDS the middle of your body.
