Breast question

I have a bit of an embarrassing question... my breasts grew quite large when I was pregnant with my daughter (she's now 10 months) and during that time my left breast seemed to grow bigger than my right. Well, I've lost all my baby weight and I'm back down to my pre-pregnancy weight and my breasts got a little smaller but are still really large compared to my frame. Lately, however I've noticed that my left breast seems to be getting even bigger (and my right has stayed the same) and I'm thinking that this isn't normal? Anyone had this problem? I understand that most women have some sort of size difference in their breasts, but this is a big difference and apparently getting bigger. I have an appt with my gyn in a couple of weeks and I'm going to bring it up then. I actually also have an appt with a plastic surgeon in a couple of weeks to discuss breast reduction, so he may be able to answer some questions as well. But in the meantime just wondering if anyone has dealt with something similar??

Re: Breast question

You didn't mention if you breast fed at all. This could make a difference, until you stop. Breasts do change alot with pregnancy, and do take a while to get back to normal. I would check with the Dr. anyway, just to be sure.

Bye the way, I've had a breast reduction, and very pleased with the results. It was 15 years ago, and I've gained some weight. They have gained also, and I'm still pleased BUT - since I've gained weight, the left is somewhat bigger than the right.
I've discussed it with my GYN, and it's normal for me. I'm not gaining anymore, and the left is just sightly bigger - but I notice it. I guess it's not a perfect science - with hormones and all.
Hopeully, it's just your hornomes trying to get back to normal. If you have a reduction, you'll prorbably get a mamogram before hand (standard procedure), then you can be checked out for any problems before the surgery.

Good Luck - keep us posted.

Re: Breast question

Hi Mary, thank you for your reply! I did not breast fed, so I don't think that has anything to do with it. It could be that my hormones are getting back to normal. I'll talk to my gyn about it, it is just sooo frustrating! Not to mention uncomfortable!
