Botanical Breast Enhancement: Guide

About non-botanical supplements

Non-botanical supplements are not endorsed here. Animal extracts are not recommended, as this site focuses on botanical use. Still, there is a little bit of information about them below.

Synthetic birth control, progesterone cream and estrogen cream are commonly used or prescribed in an attempt for treating hormonal imbalances. These are not fully figured out. The primary focus of this website is on botanical use.


A birth control pill or patch has more chances of success with bust enhancement if it contains an estrogen with a progestin rather than a prolactin.

Birth control pills (BCP)

For herbal breast enhancement, the herb schedule for menstruation and secretory phase should work with birth control pills. BCP may cause growth with the right combination of herbs taken during menstruation, but BCP interrupts follicular production of hormones that assist in breast enhancement for proliferative phase, and stopping BCP during proliferative phase usually causes minor decreases in breast size. Unfortunately, stopping BCP (even during proliferative phase) can also increase effects of testosterone (androgens). There are plenty of variables of the combined use of herbs and BCP. I can inform you, but I cannot be responsible for odds of birth control

Herbs may interfere with birth control, especially from menstruation until after ovulation. For birth control purposes, it is better to limit herb use to late secretory phase, but there is always the chance of herbs interfering with BCP to allow pregnancy to occur. Any herb can interfere, but be mindful of herbs that (sometimes conditionally) promote menstruation or that can shorten secretory phase like vitex, mint, fenugreek, rosemary, basil, pueraria, ginseng or lavender.

Progestogens, including from BCP, naturally break down into androgens and mineralocorticoids. Because of this, the right combination of herbs taken together with BCP can increase breast enhancement, as opposed to taking herbs over 10 minutes later which can be counterproductive. If you're having symptoms of low estrogen, birth control pills can make it worse, especially during proliferative phase. Birth control pills likely have varying potencies on ERα and ERβ.

If you're using birth control pills for hormonal balance, and not for birth control, depending on if the hormones are equally distributed in the pill, it's possible that fraction of that pill can be used at a time.

It has become more difficult to determine phases of the cycle to use herbs when birth control pill was taken. Also, when BCP use was stopped, androgenic symptoms have emerged before. BCP use with herbs may be difficult. When androgenic symptoms emerge, eat dietary fiber such as brown rice.

What about birth control patches?

It is easier to imbalance on hormones when using a birth control patch and any herbal program. Patches constantly or periodically release progestogens and a lesser amount of estrogens. The body has to balance progesterones that the body converts into androgens, mineralcorticoids and gluccocorticoids. If the body does not balance progestogens enough, by converting androgens into estrogens, continuing to take herbs and birth control can lead to estrogen deficiency. A patch has the ability to release more progesterone, before the body can convert androgens formed from it into estrogens.

I'm unfamiliar with birth control patch brands, but they have different potencies of hormones and their metabolites.

Programs that used contraceptives

Jellie's program uses a contraceptive implant and birth control pills. There has been results with the combination of a herb program and this. Implants are not recommended for the sole purpose of any herbal program. There would also be less control of timing, especially when effects by anything hormonal have been conditional before.

In the hirsutism01 program journal, patches were used at times, and the effect of that and bcp often contributed to more negative effects.

Some successful programs blogged about didn't use any form of contraceptive.

Estrogen Cream

It seems that estrogen cream has different effects depending on when it is used. When there were signs of acne, estrogen cream has normalized body temperature, and increased estrogen response. When there were no signs of acne, estrogen cream only made body hair worse.

The effect of estrogen cream is similar to that of herbs that work on ERα and ERβ. A partial estrogenic response was sometimes caused, because an antagonist herb targeted ERα or ERβ. When acne was caused, an herb with an estrogen simile didn't always cause an estrogenic response, because that herb likely agonized a different estrogen receptor. In theory, herbs that caused acne sometimes possibly targeted one of the two estrogen receptors, and an estrogenic response depended on the specific receptor that estrogen simile targeted. It's possible that herbs that cause acne antagonize ERα or ERβ. When there's acne, it's possible that estrogen cream can cause both an estrogenic effect for estrogen receptors antagonized by acne and an androgenic effect for estrogen receptors not antagonized by acne.

Please note that the effects of estrogen cream are not thoroughly proven. The effects of estrogen cream have also not been tested when there is bloating from progesterone either. Not recommending estrogen cream, but instead showing the potential results of its use.

Bovine ovary or herbs?

Which do you think works better? Can you use both??

You can use both. This project focuses on herbal ways for breast enhancement, without animal extracts.

Animal ovary has caused breast growth, but when too much was used, it caused a hormone imbalance. It increased progesterone like effects, but as it lowered estrogen, it has caused symptoms of concern. If animal extracts are to be used, their hormone properties must be balanced.

Avoid bovine ovary for proliferative phase, and possibly menstruation. If using animal extracts, limit that to less than one drop per day. Also, chicken eggs raise hormones, so it can be used as an alternative.

3 months of herbal breast enhancement
anon02's results

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.
