Default Why are my breasts growing suddenly?

I'm a 32D even though I look more like a B. I've noticed yesterday that they seem a little heavier/bigger than they used to be. I know they get bigger when you're pregnant, but I'm not pregnant and I should be done growing.

I've been on BC for 3 1/2 years now and have had no side effects.

I'm currently taking zyprexa and lithium, but I don't see how that can cause my breasts to grow.

Any idea why this is happening?

I've been on the psych meds for over a year and a half, I'm not sure why it would suddenly change now even with a med change. I was off the zyprexa for a few weeks now I'm back on them for a couple weeks

It's not significantly bigger, but it does feel heavier than normal

When some women start to gain weight they do so in their breasts first...they also tend to lose in their breasts first. How long have you been on the lithium? Some people retain water while taking lithium if they do not drink enough water. Could it be water weight you are gaining in your boobs? Also, how old are you? When I hit my 30's mine got a little bigger.

Default Re: Why are my breasts growing suddenly?

I've gone from a B cup to an E, within just a few months - at 27!! I thought it might be because I gained a little weight, but I've now lost about 28lbs and my chest hasn't shrunk at all. I've gone up and down in weight before but never moved up from a B. So I too wondered if it was a med side effect, but didn't find anything when I Googled it to suggest that... I did, however, find some info that suggested that women who haven't fully emotionally developed also may not have fully physically developed in that area... so I can't help but wonder if my progress in therapy has something to do with it (I've been in therapy just over a year now). I also read something about when you have a connection with your therapist (in my case the first person I've felt 'connected' with), it can cause the release of oxytocin - the 'cuddle' hormone - which apparently is the hormone released during pregnancy that causes the breasts to grow.

That's my theory, anyway! But like, maybe don't quote me on it...

My T and I connected really well, but he was only temporary. =[

I am also attempting online dating.
