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
- Weight gain
- 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.
