Breast enlargement pills

Sorry this isn't about breast implants but it's similar. Has anyone tried those natural breast enlargement pills? I was reading about "Femenique" and it sounds so promising I'd like to try it. However... They say the results are lasting but I'd really like to hear experiences from real people who've tried the product. The last thing I want is to spend $200 for nothing, and maybe even end up going droopy after I stop the pills. Please help!

Save your $$, they're a waste. I tried many different herbal products, pills, creams and even a liquid concoction and nothing worked. They did however make me break out horribly and wreaked havoc on my menstrual cycle.

The bottom line is, they're nothing but snake oil. Your best bet is to either pick up a pair of Curves silicone bra inserts or put that $200 in the bank and start saving up for an augmentation surgery.

Don't let the "breast enlargement pills" scam you. There are no pills out there that will cause your breasts to increase tissue size permanently. The only time the breast grows after puberty is during pregnancy.

Hi I;ve done some research online and Femenique has had the best reviews overall. I don't want to waste money either. Let me know if it works. Thank you.

I wanted to find out more about non-surgical breast enhancers as well, i've been doing research also. I want to try the non-surgical route first before i submit myself to surgery.. i hate thinking about going under the knife. Anyway, i found this one product called Vanity. It's made by the same pharmaceutical company as viagra.. one concern i have is with these pills.. dosages of estrogen.. Is that really harmful? I've been trying to look up information on estrogen and what affects it has such as risk for cancer etc. Can anyone clue me in?

I'm not saying that the breast enhancement pills containing estrogen can cause breast cancer, but when I went to hotbot and typed "estrogen and breast", I got the following links: http://www.breastcancer.net/ (do a find in the page ... cntl+f ... and type "estrogen"); http://www.oncolink.org/types/article.cfm?c=3&s=5&ss=33&id=8320; http://www.nih.gov/news/pr/jul2002/nhlbi-09.htm (this was was real scary ... it's the National Institutes of Health ... the article is headlined "NHLBI Stops Trial of Estrogen Plus Progestin Due to Increased Breast Cancer Risk, Lack of Overall Benefit"); there are so many more. Apparently estrogen replacement therapy can cause breast cancer! I think I much prefer going under the knife of a skilled surgeon's hands than to chance an increased risk of breast cancer!! WOW! Thanks for the eye-opener! I never would have known any of this had I not tried to research "estrogen and breast" to respond to your post!!! Sue

Hi,

I have also been checking out breast enhancement pills as I have the flattening that goes along with having kids and breastfeeding. I do not want to have to go the surgery route and have them replaced and run all the risks.

Anyway, It is my understanding that the herbal pills do not work. I am trying to find anyone who has tried a glandular breast enhancement pill called Wonder Breast... changing their name to Bountiful Breast. It supposedly works with your body to "reactivate" hormones that you got Or were supposed to get during puberty. Instead of estrogen based it promotes your progesterone which is safe to my understanding and may even help women healthwise with cancers and menstral or menopausal problems.

If anyone has heard of or tried this product please let me know. I really want to try it but don't want to get scammed. I really do not want to get implants but my breasts are "thrashed" and embarrassing for me. I can not even find bras to fit, let alone a good push up bra that works.

Hi. I have also been looking into a breast enlargement pill called Vanity which I have seen advertised on many TV shows. I am currently using Breast Success and have been taking for a couple of months but the tablets no matter what brand have to be kept to a strict regime in taken them everyday. Even after the first couple of weeks I could feel that they were working. My breasts just had a different feeling to them. They were a bit tingly and felt heavy and fuller and even looked bigger. Before I started the tablets, I was a B/C cup but I would still like to go up to a D cup. I really do believe they work but it also depends on your own natural structure and the way your body reacts. I am only a petite frame but even so they are still working for me. I was wondering if anyone has ever taken Vanity before. I heard they are the same company as Erdic which are supposed to work really well but Erdic is a lot dearer. My problem is that I sometimes forget to take the tabs and that's just not going to work at all. I even noticed after having them, they also have a lot of other health benefits such as calming mood swings, increased sex drive, even stronger nails and hair. I just think these are the best alternative to going under the knife. That is just too dangerous. I believe that the natural herbal ingredients are used to stimulate the Estrogen that is naturally produced in our bodies (eg going through puberty or when pregnant) I dont think the tabs actually contain estrogen. This is just from what I have read but I'm no doctor so I guess the bottom line is to ask your doctor if your concerned. And its really up to you if you feel it safe or not. I cant see whats wrong with taking natural herbs that have been used for so many years and have other great qualities. I would like to hear if anyone else has taken any other type of pill and how they have worked for you, successful or not?

Thanks

Hi Leesylou!

I have been thinking of trying some of the breast enlargement pills too. It has been a several weeks since you started taking the pills, could you please give us an update? I'm getting pretty sceptical with a lot of these companies, since they don't reply to my e-mails or phone calls, and others are so pushy to sell, when I just want answers to my questions.

I was also wondering if anybody has tried the Brava system (brava.com)? It sounds safer, but is more expensive and looks time consuming.

Thanks in advance!

Lynette.

Hey I did a bunch of research on Feminque cause I was considering them too. Be careful, I've read that they are just the same as 2 other products, with a different name. I also when to some of the website links to see a comparison of pills. Theses are all just links, there is no main medical website attached to them. My guess was that the sites were set up by Feminique to help sell their product. Any company doing something that shady isn't worth dealing with!
