ever since like two years ago, my boobs have been the same size. they are like not even a quarter of a quarter of a size A. It's like they haven't been growing. It's so stupid that the boys at school make fun of me and I'm in 10th grade. Urgh. Is there anything wrong with me? Is there anyway I can jumpstart the growth again? thanks a lot.

your boobs will grow if your body puts out some more estrogen into your bloodstream. how much and when they'll put out that estrogen depends on your genetics. you might just be a late-bloomer. or how about the women in your family (both sides!). Are they buxom? Are they more waifish? ask some of your female relatives when they started to develop if you're so inclined.

well, then i don't know what to tell you. actually, i have some ideas, but they're not the greatest. if it bothers you so much down the road, you can opt for implants. but that's generally not a great idea. or you can wear padded bras. Nothing wrong with that!

or you can learn to accept your body as it is! not everybody out there is fixated on giant breast sizes. and even if they were (which they aren't), nobody's opinion of your breasts truly matters except your own.

do you think they will grow more along the way? and is there a way to increase the estrogen to enter and activate your body? thanks

you can't get more estrogen without a doctor's Rx, and no doctor in his/her right mind would give it to you (seeing as you have no serious endocrine abnormalities). so, you might want to just wait it out.

Butterluck, I had no boobs for... well, forever. I'm still quite small breasted (at this point in my life, my belly sticks out further than my boobs!) but they did grow a bit more in my late teens/early 20s.

On the other hand, there's nothing wrong with having small boobs. My friend Julie had none at all, and once we got past the dating stage where people were interested in parts and into the stage where people were interested in people, it stopped being an issue for her.

Also, she could wear anything, whereas my girlfriends with larger boobs were always having boobage problems.

I really wouldn't go down the implants path. Your body is your body, and the very best thing you can ever do for it is learn to love it, exactly as it is.

Hope this helps,

Be happy with yourself. Not everybody is preoccupied with breast size. I don't find large breasts attractive at all.

Is it true that increased estrogen level (from pills) could increase chance of getting breast cancer?

Whoa there -- while supporting others and trying to help them appreciate their body is wonderful, let's not do it at the expense of others. Breasts are attractive in any size.

I know what you're going through--i have small boobs-34A...and i'm 18, so there's a really good chance that I won't grow anymore...all i do to feel confident about myself is wear curved bras that help make the curves i don't have actually turn into curves. Does that make any sense? I hope it helps...big boobs aren't the whole world.

there's no such thing as no chance
