Herbal breast enlargement program for luteal



Luteal phase consists of secretory and premenstrual phases.

Metabolic foods, supplements and spices seemed to interfere with estrogen production, which has usually caused setbacks, including for this phase.

See also, the programs: menses and proliferative.

Birth Control Pill use

The proliferative phase program applies to BCP (birth control pill) use. There's a possibility that the luteal phase herb schedule can apply later in the cycle. For additional details, see the herb program: BCP01.

Hip and butt growth

To focus on hips and reproductive health. Limit sesame seed to be used with hops, and to when there's acne. Tea with hops requires: 15 sunflower seeds, 1 fenugreek seed, and 10 sesame seeds.

This herb schedule needs to be improved. Because of the body's ability to produce estrogen and progesterone during secretory, a herb schedule can be made ideal for both hip/butt growth and breast growth for this phase. Pay attention to hip growth and hormonal signs.

Transitioning to luteal phase

When sunflower causes acne, instead of growth, it may mean it's secretory phase. If this occurs, first add minimal fenugreek seed, intended for the first doses of secretory phase:

  • 1 fenugreek seed
  • 20 sunflower seeds
  • 10 sesame seeds

Make sure it's secretory, by trying this up to three times during acne, not during bloating, to see that it works each time. Fenugreek works better when there's acne. If this one with added fenugreek doesn't work, you may still be on proliferative phase.

Rest of luteal phase by signs

After each of these, wait for the results, before taking another one.

When there's no Bloating/Swelling/Puffiness nor Acne

The one for the rest of luteal can be followed, unless there's bloating, breast swelling, or when breasts are a pear/lightbulb shape: see section below.

When there's no bloating, breast swelling or acne during luteal, take:

  • 10 sesame seeds
  • 2 handfuls of sunflower seed
  • 3 fenugreek seeds: contains diosgenin and phyto-estrogens


The one for acne, is similar to the one suggested for each morning. The one for mornings is largely interchangeable with the recommendation for when there's acne.

Every time acne occurs for luteal, the following can be eaten:

  • 10 sesame seeds
  • 20 sunflower seeds
  • 3 fenugreek seeds


This part of the herb schedule is incomplete. Swelling needs to be reduced, because it isn't real growth and it causes potential for shrinking. Swelling also can carry into menses phase.

Bloating is a different corticosteroid sign than acne. Breast swelling is also a different sign than breast widening. Also, a pear or light-bulb shape may also be considered breast swelling.

This recommendation is preliminary. Every time bodily bloating or breast swelling occurs for secretory (and possibly premenstrual), the following can be tried:

  • ½ handful of sunflower seeds

Saw palmetto, wild yam, olive oil and coconut oil must be omitted when bloating or swelling occurs.

Potential variations

Variations of hops and thistles

For early secretory phase, after growth from a first dose, hops or thistles can be used once during acne with the rest of the recommendation for this. This is optional, or for use when androgenic signs are heavy. Hops and thistles requires minimal fenugreek, sesame and sunflower.

  • 10 sesame seeds
  • 20 sunflower seeds
  • 3 fenugreek seeds
  • minimal hops or thistles

Fenugreek works on ERβ as opposed to ERα, which it won't interfere too much with the effects of hops as long as there's acne and minimal sesame seed is used.

A hops barley drink could possibly be taken to replace hops and sunflower seed here. This was intended for 3 fenugreek seeds and 10 sesame seed to be eaten on the side with this. This would be the only time of the herb schedule where a hops/barley drink could be beneficial to the herb schedule. There's one other time, where a hops/barley drink could be used, but use there may not be reliable.

Minimal thistles can replace hops, if hops isn't available. Thistles requires minimal sunflower seed and fenugreek. Avoid hops and thistles for this phase if any metabolic food will be used.

Theory use with thistles

Unsure about if thistles should be used with BCP.

Thistles' estrogenic effects last for days on ERβ, which the body starts producing estrogen. Thistles and hops should be avoided for premenstrual phase.

If both thistles and hops are each used once during the same secretory phase, it could be more challenging to balance hormones. If thistles is used, estrogenic foods may have to be avoided for the rest of this phase. Estrogenic foods include: soy sauce and oranges.

Theory on fennel

Fennel may want to be avoided for those with past hormone imbalances. The best time to use minimal fennel is when there's no acne, bloating or breast swelling during luteal phase. Avoid fennel for this phase if any metabolic food will be used.


A lot of premenstrual symptoms are consistent with when bloating occurs. Breast shape of a lightbulb or pear may be considered as breast swelling.

Possible topical use

Topical estrogen isn't recommended. Eating 1 fenugreek seed is safer, and better serves this purpose.

It may be better to not use topical oils or creams on the hips, because phytohormones would have to provide antagonism not only for the surface, but equally within the body for health.

Avoid topical oils for premenstrual phase of luteal. Topical use would only be limited to secretory phase, after the first tea causes breast swelling. Oils would have to be used for the same signs that either edible progestins or lignans are used. Temperature of lower and upper body would have to be monitored, to see if it stays. Signs of hips and bust must be observed, and that they aren't only fluctuations. Stop using topicals, when there are signs of acne and bloating, then revert to a proven herb schedule when you're certain it is this phase and of hormonal signs.

Topical flaxseed oil can possibly be used on the bust when there's breast widening during secretory phase only.

Unrefined olive or coconut oil can possibly be used topically on the bust when there's breast elongation for this phase.
