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. Hops requires: 20 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 with or without sesame 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

Make sure it's secretory, by trying this up to three times during acne, not during bloating/swelling, 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.

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

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

  • 1 fenugreek seed: contains diosgenin and phyto-estrogens
  • 20 sunflower seeds
  • If breasts, armpits or forehead is warm, add 10 sesame seeds, otherwise, sesame is optional

This can also be taken when estrogenic signs begin, or an estimated time before this occurs. Also, take this when breast elongation occurs.

Increasing fenugreek can cause more swelling, and need for time between swelling to gradually lower swelling. For those with hirsutism or a hormone imbalance: use the minimum amount of fenugreek seed in the main suggestion.

Breast swelling includes puffiness or pear/lightbulb shape.


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

  • 20 sunflower seeds
  • 1 to 5 fenugreek seeds
  • 10 sesame seeds


Swelling needs to be reduced, because it isn't real growth and it causes potential for shrinking. Swelling also can carry into menses phase. A pear or light-bulb shape may also be considered breast swelling. To identify breast and bodily swelling, see swelling-bloating.

Every time bodily bloating or breast swelling occurs for secretory and likely premenstrual, the following can be taken, no more sooner than an hour at a time:

  • 20 sunflower seeds

Breast swelling is also a different sign than breast widening. However, carry on with 20 sunflower seeds at a time, until the estimated time before estrogenic signs begin. When breast elongation occurs, that's not due to swelling, take the recommendation for when there's no signs.

When bloating or swelling occurs, phytoprogestins and phytoestrogens must be avoided.

Phytoprogestins: saw palmetto, wild yam, olive oil, coconut oil. Phytoprogestins and phytoestrogens: fenugreek, shatavari. Phytoestrogens: hops, thistles, clover.

Estrogenic signs

Excessive estrogenic signs during secretory phase are less likely to occur, but if they occur they are likely to be temporary, because the body will attempt to balance it with production of progestins during secretory. Estrogenic signs may occur more often during premenstrual phase. When estrogenic signs occur during luteal phase (secretory and premenstrual included), eat:

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

Androgenic signs

Excess arousal may be an androgenic sign, but the body tries to maintain a progestogenic balance during luteal. There's no point in lowering bodily androgens through herbs, but instead to balance hormones around them. When androgenic signs occur during luteal, the theory is to eat:

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

Androgenic signs during luteal may be the same symptoms for acne. There's the same recommendation for that.

Mixed signs

Swelling and bloating must be lowered gradually through use of:

  • 20 sunflower seeds

This must be taken often, until swelling goes down, but no more often than once every hour. This can be taken until an estimated time before estrogenic signs like breast elongation start.

If acne also occurs during swelling and bloating, first, swelling/bloating must be minimized with the recommendation above, before taking the dose for acne, which is of:

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

Potential variations

If you've had a history of hormone imbalances, avoid these variations that contain hops, thistles or fennel. It's better to avoid thistles and fennel.

Variation with hops

For early secretory phase, after growth from a first dose, hops can be used once when there's no swelling/bloating. These herbs/seeds are required with each other and are in the correct proportions below:

  • 1 fenugreek seed
  • 20 sunflower seeds
  • 10 sesame seeds
  • pinch of hops

Hops requires sesame, because both of these have the corresponding effects on ERα.

A hops barley drink could possibly be taken to replace hops and sunflower seed here. This was intended for < 3 fenugreek seeds and up to 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 may be beneficial to the herb schedule.

Hops should be avoided for premenstrual phase, and during breast soreness, swelling or bloating.

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.

Minimal thistles could replace hops, if hops isn't available. Thistles requires minimal sunflower seed and fenugreek.

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 when there's swelling or bloating for the rest of this phase. Estrogenic foods include: soy sauce and oranges.

Thistles should be avoided for premenstrual phase, and during breast soreness, swelling or bloating.

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.

In theory, 1 fennel seed can be added to the recommendation with hops above, once per luteal phase, for when there's no swelling/bloating or acne.


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.
