Herbs vs. Hormones for Male to Female Breast Enhancement

male breast enhancement herbs hormones

So you’re ready to ditch your breast forms and get some womanly curves of your own? Bravo!

Herbs and hormones are the two most popular options for male to female breast enhancement. Both methods work, but there are pros and cons to each approach.

Here are some things to think about:


Certain herbs contain chemicals that mimic the effects of estrogen. These “phytoestrogenic” herbs can stimulate breast growth in biological males.

The advantage of herbs is that they are 100% natural and are safer than synthetic hormones. Phytoestrogenic herbs such as fenugreek, wild yam, fennel, red clover, and pueraria mirifica have been safely used for hundreds of years.

The disadvantage of herbs is that they aren’t as powerful as hormones and don’t work as quickly.

But don’t let that fool you – herbs can have a dramatic result on your breasts, especially over time. (Check out some of the results my girls have experienced here.)


Pharmaceutical hormones are much more potent than herbs and are the logical choice for transsexual women. If hormones are started early enough, a TS woman can totally avoid masculine development during puberty.

Beside breast enlargement, hormones lead to:

  • Redistribution of body fat
  • Thinner body hair
  • Thickening of hair on the head
  • Softer skin
  • Reduced muscle development
  • Changes in body odor and sweat production
  • Decreased penis size
  • Psychological changes.

The downside of hormones is that they are associated with certain health risks and therefore must be administered by a doctor. (Self-prescribed hormones are very dangerous; please don’t do this.)

Some of the health risks of transgender HRT include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Weight gain
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Risk of blood clots/deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Increased potential for gall bladder disease
  • Increased potential for liver/breast cancer

So which breast enhancement method is best for YOU? It all depends on your goals and where you fall in the feminine spectrum.

Transsexual women who are serious about transitioning should be under a doctor’s care for HRT. Period.

Herbs are an appropriate alternative for crossdressers and transgender women who don’t want to make a full transition or don’t want to deal with the risk of hormones.

I’d love to hear YOUR thoughts on this. Have you ever used herbs or hormones for breast enlargement? What was your experience? Please leave me your comments below!

    I took a wide variety of phytoestrogens, including pueraria mirifica for over 6 months and saw ZERO change.

    The issue with phytoestrogens is that they’re not human bioidentical and are weak estrogens at best. If they were effective, the FDA would have stepped in long ago and put a halt to selling them as breast enhancements.

    I gave up on them after realizing that phytoestrogens were useless and began seeing a psychologist who recommended me for HRT at a reputable doctor. I saw real change within a couple of months, including the beginning of breast development and change in libido. Within 6 months, I began noticing that body hair was diminishing on its own. I’ve been on HRT for 33 months now and have had significant changes in breast development, skin softness and I’ve lost all of my body hair except for the places where women usually have it. It’s much lighter and finer in places where hair remains.

    Facial hair grows slower, but is still there (HRT won’t get rid of a beard), I had 6 treatments with laser and am on year number 2 of electrology.

    It’s FAR, FAR cheaper doing HRT the right way. I pay $37 a month for my spironolactone, estradiol and finasteride treatments than I was paying for phytoestrogens and am having my levels checked on a regular basis by a doctor.

    I don’t expect this post to survive, since the owner of the site is probably profiting from the sale of phytoestrogens. But if they are, they should be ashamed of exploiting our fears and selling products that won’t have the desired effect for the people taking them. If they’re not, they should be informing people about the dangers of phytoestrogens vs bioidentical estrogens.

    I had been on a mtf hormone regimen for many years and then had to quit taking them. A couple years later I had a prostate problem and was given finasteride and started taking estrogen again. The amount of new breast growth has been surprising. I was also using a small amount of estrogen gel and progesterone cream twice a day on my breasts and nipples. The nipple growth was shocking. So much so that I stopped using the gel and cream. At the time I stopped my nipples were an inch long when erect and about as big around as my little finger. They’re still big, but not nearly as big as they were. But my breasts are still growing on the estrogen and I hope they’ll continue to grow.
