Luteal: early 2021
For the first dose, she took: 500mg of maca, 3 fenugreek seeds, 1 sunflower seed and 10 sesame seeds. There was swelling from this, but unwanted corticosteroid related bloating symptoms. Maca was too high, which by literature has similar phytohormones to fenugreek.
When she got acne, she ate: 1 fenugreek seed, 1 sunflower seed and 10 sesame seeds. Symptoms improved afterwards. This may have been repeated one or more times. Symptoms seemed to improve and there was minor growth.
A few days later, her order of hops arrived. For early secretory, but not the first dose, she took a tea of: a rice-grain size of hops, 1 fenugreek seed, 1 sunflower seed and 10 sesame seeds. Her breasts got fuller, but breasts and hips got warm: about 37°C. Later, there were corticosteroid symptoms. Hops can only be used once for this phase.
When she had bloating symptoms and other corticosteroid signs, she ate: 1 fenugreek seed, 1 sunflower seed and 10 sesame seeds. There was an improvement in bloating symptoms. There was minor breast growth from this, that didn't seem to be swelling. This is the dose to be repeated, with the exception of increasing sunflower seed only, for when there's swelling symptoms away from the breasts or when there's acne as well. She has acne symptoms, which more sunflower seed will be used with each dose.
She senses that menstruation may be coming soon. Fenugreek might be increased to up to 5 seeds for premenstrual phase.
She took: 30 sunflower seeds, 10 sesame seeds and 1 fenugreek seed. Her bust is noticeably larger, but still the same cup size. Bloating lessened considerably.
February - March
For the next luteal phase, on the second day of higher temperature, she took a tea of: 15 sesame seeds, 5 sunflower seeds, 1 fenugreek seed and a rice-grain size of hops. There was breast widening from this. The day before this, she took a break.
For the rest of luteal, she will take at a time: 1 fenugreek seed, about 15 sesame seeds and varying amounts of sunflower seeds. Sunflower amounts can be from 1 to a handful of seeds: less will be used when there's elongation. These don't have to be as tea.
Growth has stalled for this phase. Possibly, estrogen production is maximized and there's not enough estrogenic antagonism. Now, sunflower amounts will be lowered. The schedule will be tried without fenugreek or maca for now because the body is expected to produce estrogen and progesterone during secretory.
Growth has continued for this phase. She took 15 sesame and varying amounts of sunflower at a time. 1 fenugreek seed was removed from this herb schedule, as it seemed to interfere with estrogen conversion and progesterone production, which was high enough.
Around the time premenstrual starts, she had a pimple, then 1 fenugreek seed was added either per dose or per day.
March - April
When she wasn't sure it was secretory, she took a tea of: 1 fenugreek seed, 3 sunflower seeds, and 10 sesame seeds. This gave positive results. The next day she took a tea of: 1 fenugreek seed, 3 sunflower seeds, 10 sesame seeds, and a rice-grain size of hops. There was minor growth from this.
A later day, in the morning she took: 1 fenugreek seed, ¼ teaspoon of sesame, and 1 sunflower seed. In the evening, she ate 1 fenugreek seed, 10 sesame seeds, and 1 sunflower seed. There was breast denseness from this. There was visible (but not measurable overbust measurement) growth from 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds, ⅛ teaspoon of sunflower seeds, 1 fenugreek seed during the evenings. Sesame needs to be lower than sunflower, as hips can still shrink even when it's secretory phase. This is from late March until April 1.
The image on the far left is of secretory phase. The next two pictures are of the luteal phase after that.
There was minor shrinkage shown in the last picture of May from the previous image. There's also minor breast swelling in this last image, which the herb program needed to be adjusted for.
