Decrease in breast size
An_254597 posted:
Good morning there, I'm a 20y.o single female. I have suffered from a sudden stoppage in my period for three months after it has came for un-usual number of days (9days and it's usual days are 6) before its stoppage directly. After three months of waiting, I got my period ( when I was on a trip outside my country in a country w/ diff. Weather ) with no cramps more than usual and for 6 days. The one after this normal period has came after 40 days and was also normal. What I am wondering about is my breast size. I noticed that my breast size is getting smaller although that I wear 32-A bras.

I have an appointment with my gynecologist in two weeks to follow up my period and my pelvic area. but I am really worried about breasts more than my period now!

Can you just calm me down or at least list me your expectations?

Thank u

Have you lost weight lately? Our breasts are mostly fat tissue and if you lose weight, your breasts would get smaller.

I wish that I am losing weight although that I don't need it just to make it the cause of my problem.

My weight has not changed since last May unfortunately.

Thank you for your replay.
