Question: taking a pill to get bigger breasts

 macncheese7 - Mon Apr 11, 2005 2:14 pm

My question is, Is the pill vanity safe to take? It says it increases breast size instead of plastic surgery. Is this safe?

User avatar Hello Macncheese7,

Most of this type of pill contains Phytoestrogens which is a weak estrogen found in plants such as soybeans, yams, flax seeds or other plant products that act like estrogen in your body. As long as you take the pill your body responds to it as if you are taking a little bit of estrogen but as soon as you stop taking them your body will stop responding to the plant estrogen. Most young women produce enough estrogen on their own so when they take these pills containing plant estrogen they don’t notice much of a difference at all. I would recommend you research the pros and cons of PHYTOESTROGENS before you start taking this product.
