Herbal Pills

Dear TeenHealthFX,
I heard about herbal pills that enlarge your breasts. Are these safe? They are 100% natural herbs.

Dear Herbal Pills,


Unfortunately, you can probably find an herb for just about everything but that does not mean you should add it to your diet. It is important to know that because a label that says something is "100% natural herbs" does not mean it is safe or effective. TeenHealthFX did some checking on these herbs and found out a few interesting things:

  • They have not been tested by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration
  • They are not regulated by the FDA
  • Product safety and/or results are NOT guaranteed.

In other words no one, except the companies that are selling these products, is saying they are safe or effective.


TeenHealthFX is guessing that you might be less than satisfied with the size of your breasts. The size of our breasts is something completely out of our control. Some girls end up with large breasts, while others are left with those on the small scale. It is a characteristic that makes us all different and special individuals. It is a genetic trait, so it may help to look at the women on both sides of your family to see what size their breasts are. You also do not mention your age but if you are under 16 it is possible your breasts may grow further.
