Menstrual Phases

The menstrual cycle will be divided into 4 phases to simplify timing: menses (menstruation), proliferative, secretory and premenstrual. Ovulation is between proliferative and secretory phases, and it will be considered an intermediate time.

Follicular phase has been divided up into menstruation and proliferative phases. Menstruation is when the uterus lining is shed. The proliferative phase is from the end of menstruation until ovulation: this is the time when the uterus rebuilds to prepare for potential pregnancy.

Luteal phase has been divided into secretory and premenstrual phases. The corpus luteum which produces progesterone is present during the secretory phase. Premenstrual phase begins after the corpus luteum disintegrates, and it ends at the beginning of menstruation.

Determining Menstrual Phase

See the links under resources for more. Mucus is a reliable way to determine phase. Temperature is an indicator, but it can fluctuate soon after herbs are taken.

Menses

Menses (menstruation) is determined by menstrual shedding.

Proliferative

Proliferative phase begins once menstruation stops. Sometimes, menstruation can stop for a day, then resume. This phase is when estrogen levels gradually start to rise.

When estrogen levels are low, there is an absence of cervical mucus. A clear indication of being definitely a few days into proliferative phase is when mucus starts. Increasing estrogen levels influence mucus to be clear and watery.

Ovulation

Increased cervical mucus that is clear (like raw egg white) and stretchy is an indication of ovulation. Swollen genitals and a feeling of itching near where the ovaries are located are sometimes associated with ovulation.

Secretory

Thick (creamy) unclear (white/yellow) mucus and higher body temperature are signs of secretory phase.

Dominant progesterone levels cause mucus to be thick and unclear.

Temperature for secretory phase ranges between 36.5℃ (97.7℉) to 37℃ (98.6℉). Progesterone produced by the corpus luteum in comparison to lower estrogen raises body temperature. If body temperature is higher than 37℃ (98.6℉), or if you have hot-flashes, see estrogen deficiency.

Premenstrual

Premenstrual syndrome symptoms are likely from a sudden decrease in progestogen synthesis. Here, body temperature lowers under 36.5℃ (97.7℉).

Mucus remains thick during premenstrual. It gets gooey and cheesy-like closer to menstruation.

Menstrual phases can synchronize with the Moon's phases, but it is not always so. The beginning of menstruation is associated with New Moon, and the occurance of full moon is associated with ovulation. This is a less reliable way of determining menstrual phases.

Symptoms

The symptom of hot-flashes are associated with abnormally high body temperature. An excessive imbalance of progesterone or prolactin should be avoided. Decreased fertility may underlie symptoms indicating increased progesterone or prolactin. Hot-flashes are associated with lower than normal estrogen production.

Breast enhancement; health blog

Blog updates: breast topics and health related content.

Anon07 - May 17, 2020
There are results of breast enlargement in the program of anon07.

Effective herb programs - May 04, 2020
The herb programs Hops01 and proliferative01 cause breast and hip growth. These programs also reduce body hair and improve scalp hair. These versions of the herb program were suggested from early this year, in the journal programs of and hirsutism02. The herb program anon03 also had parts of these herb schedules from last year. The basic outline of this herb program was around much sooner. Basic programs Jellie and anon02 have recent evidence of efficacy of natural breast enlargement. Anon02's program is no longer recommended, and is replaced with better herb programs. anon05's program has images of growth early on in the program which plateaued, and she has expressed interest in trying a program at a later time. Anon05 actually made breast enlargement gains before the first picture from information on this website.

Hirsutism02 - March 29, 2020
Her hair conditions improved: body hair lowered, and scalp hair has grown back. There were noticeable but minor gains in breast and hip size.

Jellie - April 05, 2020
Before and after of Jellie's breast growth, from about 1 month on a herb program. Latest picture is of February 10, 2020. She also had described hip growth, that is not shown in pictures. [Results are from a C cup to an E cup.]

New breast enlargement programs: April 2020 - April 05, 2020
3 new herbal breast enlargement programs. Breast/hip enhancement results aren't in yet. Two programs are without BCP use. The composite program allows individual entries by different people with similar cases to show results from specific herb combinations for different times of the menstrual cycle.

Hops - February 09, 2020
Investigating replacements for hops Looking into valerian and passionfruit as partial replacements for hops. They have similar properties based on mood. It is underinvestigated if their effects on GABA and mood has to do with an influence on prolactin. There is not enough information on the prenylflavonoid content on passionfruit, and the flavonoid content in valerian. There is a similarity in valerian that it can cause skin sensitivity, like hops. Valerian and passionfruit should likely be avoided during proliferative phase, like hops. Beets and figs are other plants to investigate. There isn't enough information available on the phytohormone content of beets. Certain figs have hormonal properties for being used for galactagogues and preventing miscarriages. There are also anti-inflamatory properties of figs. Figs contain lignans, and flavonoids which need to be further investigated. The type of prenylflavonoid matters, in what the receptors it will target and the effect. Milkthistle is a partial substitute for hops, but it's effects are mainly on ERβ. Sunflower seed and wheat bread seemed to cause a minor improvement from allergic-like symptoms. Sunflower did improve hormone balance slightly.

Anethole & estragole - January 30, 2020
Many known stilbenes are estrogen receptor antagonists. Stilbenes and their polymers include: anethole, dianethole, estragole, tamoxifen, stilbene and stilbestrol. Spearmint and fennel contain stilbenes as active hormonal constituents. Based on anecdotal information from spearmint's and fennel's actions, anethole, dianethole and estragole are likely ERα selective. Anethole is another name for transanethole, and Stilbene is another term for transtilbene. Estragole and anethole are isomers. Dianethole and photoanethole are polymers of anethole.

Breast Development and Endocrinology, 3rd Ed - May 22, 2019
Expanded and clarified details for Breast Development and Endocrinology 3rd edition. From now on, this will be volume 1. These edits will reflect in Super Bazongas. Herb schedule will be edited, but same herb combinations will be used as basis. Future releases of Super Bazongas will be volume 2.

Super Bazongas: Note - October 05, 2019
Super Bazongas, Vol 2, is not up to date, and is currently available for archive purposes. It will be updated at a later time. See program blog for more recent information.
