changes in breasts after marriage
An_207939 posted:
In my culture girls have no sexual experiences (or even have boyfriends) prior to marriage. In this context, after marriage and regular sexual intercourse, would their breast size increase due to hormonal changes? What other changes might occur in their bodies?

Hi Anon_162350,

Breast size is determined by genetics, hormones including pregnancy, oral contraceptives, weight gain or loss, and perimenopause and menopause.

Females go through puberty at different ages and every girl's journey through puberty is different. Usually breast development starts from the age of 10 on up...then the menstrual cycle and a period start a few years later.

Your question would better be addressed though on a different board such as the Women's Health Community board as this community board is about beauty, skin care, and anti-aging issues. We also have a Women's Health Center for more information. We also have a Sexual Health Community for questions related to those issues about sex.

I hope this information is helpful.
