    Breast enlargement from armour thyroid medication

    Hello,
    I was wondering if anyone has experienced extreme breast enlargement while taking armour thyroid. I was always one with relatively smaller breasts, and over the past year and a half, since I have been taking armour, they have grown about two to three sizes. Please let me know if you have any information regarding this.

    Thank you!

    Neither Armour nor any other thyroid replacement med alone would directly affect breast size.

    However, all of the hormones work in conjuction with each other. All cells including ovaries have thyroid hormone receptors. When the amount of thyroid hormone changes, so might the estrogen and other sex hormone levels, and that could increase or decrease breast size.

    Other glands, such as pituitary, can play a significant role in breast size, too. What's your doctor saying about it?
