Increased breast size
by Alta Booyens
(Pretoria, South Africa)
I'm 60 yrs old, had a hysterectomy about 14 yrs ago (still have ovaries). Shortly after began experiencing menopause symptoms-hot flashes, insomnia, mood swings. It was awful, but didn't want to take HRT, so started with things like black cohosh, red clover and also tried progesterone cream (New Balance from AIM).
I stopped the progesterone because it worsened the symptoms (seems now I took too little?) Now,more than 10 yrs later, the flashes are all but gone, still suffer insomnia though. My problem is that my breasts have increased in size from B cup to a E cup! What caused this? My weight did increase as I have developed Insulin Resistance for which I take 2000gm Glucophage per day, but my breast size increased out of proportion! Could the supplement for menopause be the culprit or estrogen dominance? I've started progesterone cream again (Solal) and am weaning myself from Menoclove plus (Bioharmony). Will my breast size return to normal if I increase the progesterone cream to your recommended 200mg per day? Thanks.
