    Many of the women think whether breast size increase after marriage, then yes it does increase. This is due to to birth control pills side effects which leads to overall weight gain as well as increase in breasts. During pregnancy, breast size increase due to increase in estrogen and progesterone levels.

    You must have heard many women complaining about how the size of their breasts has increased after marriage. They fear of looking shapeless and disfigured once they start progressing ahead in their marital life.

    Apart from some of the common reason like being careless about diet and neglecting the importance of physical exercise, birth control pills and pregnancy are far more important, as reasons for enlarged breasts post marriage.

    Misconceptions about increase in size of Breasts

    Let us just not forget that breast is a tissue and its size fluctuates depending upon the overall body changes. Irrespective of the fact whether you are married or unmarried, there is no direct relation to the size of the breasts. There are several misconceptions about increase or decrease in the size of the breast. Some tend to believe that sucking of breasts and pressing leads to increase in size. However, this is not at all true. By following certain specific typical pattern, breast massage might lead to blood circulation in the breast region but normal pressing has nothing to do with breast’s size.

    Do Birth Control Pills Increase the Breast Size After Marriage?

    For avoiding unwanted pregnancy, many women start taking oral contraceptives once they have an active sex life. Like any other medication, oral contraceptives have their own share of side effects. It has been observed that women on pills experience again in body weight plus an increase in breast size. Breast tissue is composed of fat so an increase in weight leads to increasing in breast size too.

    Do Birth control pills increase the breast size after marriage
    Oral contraceptive pills have Estrogen hormone. The ovulation and menstruation processes are triggered by fluctuations in estrogen hormone level in the body. And oral contraceptives help in regulating and maintaining their steady level in the body.

    To be more precise, the increase in breast size after marriage also depends on women’s figure and the kind of pills she has chosen for birth control.

    Let us talk about Progestin, which leads to increase in cup size. The pill type also reverses the process to normal size once you stop taking them. The reason behind the pill leading to increase in breast size is edema or fluid retention. When you start taking the pills you will experience the tingling effect which will disappear in due course of time or when you stop taking the pills. With advancements newer pills in the market contain low hormone doses, unlike earlier traditionalOCPS, reducing the total impact. It should be noted that not every women react to OCPS but around 35% of all females see a weight gain.

    Does Pregnancy Lead to Increase in Breast Size?

    Another important phase of woman’s life is pregnancy. All the changes in the female body take place due to the high level of hormones called Estrogen and Progesterone. These hormones post conception leads to stimulation of milk ducts and milk glands of the breasts. During pregnancy, the bra size may go up by a couple of cups, which is due to increase in blood flow and due to deposits of fat in the breasts. The pregnant woman with each passing trimester will start noticing stretching of skin around the nipples, nipples getting darker and also underlying veins peeping out around the breast area. Besides this, there will be production of yellow thick fluid known as Colostrum in mother’s breasts, during the later stages of pregnancy – all this leads to increase in breast size.

    Does Pregnancy lead to increase in breast size

    Wearing comfortable bra and clothes will help in keeping the changing body insecurities in check, however, the bottom line is that one should be weary of gaining a few pounds in the breast area once they start planning or controlling a birth.

    The other reason behind this change is extra stress, which leads to overthinking. Hormones tend to misbalance their potential when you over think. This leads to increase in weight and in losing hair.

    Hope this article enlightened you about the increase in size after a marriage and possible reasons behind this change.

    You will be dazed to know that sports bra helps in maintaining the bust shape when following a fitness regime. Also, a woman's breast undergoes a lot of size changes after pregnancy as well. Read up the confessions of women post pregnancy in response to their big busts.

    It has been 2 years to our marriage but I am still the same as I was before my marriage. I took birth control pills but I don't see any increase in my breast size. I think these pills act differently on everyone's body.

    This article must be shared as many women deny marriage as it can damage their posture. But this is highly inaccurate and marriage doesn't play any role behind increased breast size.
