Does Being Sexually Active Increase Breast Size?
For many women, their breast size has a strong impact on their confidence level, especially when they are sexually active. They went to look and feel good. Sex triggers different biological responses for different people, and it can actually significantly, albeit temporarily, increase breast size in some women.
This has to do with your nervous system and your circulation system, specifically the different sensations that your body is feeling and the blood flow being directed to certain parts of the body, including your breasts.
This increased activity in your blood vessels causes your veins to become more visible in your skin, and this leads to your breasts to temporarily swell up in excitement. Your breasts won’t just look bigger and more pert, they will also feel fuller. It is even estimated that breast size can increase between 15 percent and 25 percent during sex when you are sexually aroused, and it will stay that way until well after the sex is over!
The natural increase in your breast size occurs when you become aroused, during sex, and immediately after sex. Post-orgasm, your breasts will begin to return to their normal size. This is because your body is calming down, and the blood flow is no longer being directed to your reproductive organs causing your breasts to be enlarged.
Being sexually active can increase your breast size temporarily; however, other factors can impact your breast size for longer spans of time, including birth control and pregnancy.
Breast Size and Birth Control
If you are sexually active, chances are you are on some form of contraceptive. This could be birth control pills, IUDs, diaphragms, implants, and more. If any of these birth control methods have hormones in them to help regulate your ovulation and period, then it can have an impact on your breast size. Specifically, birth control will increase your breast size for as long as you take that specific method.
Most birth control pills include two hormones to help regulate your body’s cycle: estrogen and progestin. Your body’s estrogen and progestin hormones will increase in your body when you start taking birth control, and it may cause your breasts to naturally become larger.
This can be because of many different factors. Your body may begin to retain water, causing your breasts to appear larger. It can also cause your weight to change, and significant changes in weight gain and loss can impact your breast size.
These are side effects and not the primary purpose of birth control, and not all women who take birth control have reported changes in their breast size during clinical trials.
If women did face an increased breast size, these changes were temporary and leveled out within a few months as their bodies become acclimated to the new hormones in their bodies. For some, the increased breast size lasted until they stopped taking the pill. Results vary in different women because of many different factors.
You should consult with a doctor before you start or stop any birth control methods. They will be able to suggest proper medication based on your needs. Any increase in breast size will be a minor side effect of birth control, but a doctor may have insight into which methods provide the best results, and you can always supplement this by taking herbal supplements like saw palmetto, fenugreek, and red clover.
Breast Size and Pregnancy
Your breast size will increase during pregnancy and breastfeeding, helping your breasts to fulfill their biological function to feed and nourish a child. Your body begins to prepare, elevating your hormone levels. This will cause your breasts to increase in size.
Additionally, your mammary glands may become enlarged, helping you to produce milk. Some women’s breasts will become enlarged and tender if they have not pumped or fed a baby at a proper time interval, again, causing the breasts to become naturally enlarged. Once you feed, your breasts will reduce in size.
Your breasts will change after having a child, and while they will be temporarily larger, they will go back to normal size – or your new normal size – after you stop breastfeeding. Pregnancy is a real and natural result of being sexually active, so it can indirectly cause your breasts to be larger.
Overall, being sexually active can impact your breast size in very different ways.
