Question
Hello, I am a transgender woman with a question about breast growth on HRT. I have been taking hormones since February 8th 2016.

However my question here pertains to breast growth. I was wondering if you knew of any "breast enlargement creams" that may work. I am unsure of how to find legitimate sources. However I have seen positive results on many products, but felt I should get an expert opinion, unless you know of another source where I can get this information.

Any help, even sources you point out would be more than helpful.

Thanks,
Jessie

Answer
Jessie,

This might be a bit outside my area of expertise, so I'm just going to give you my thoughts and feelings on the matter.

There are several breast creams on the market that claim they can enlarge the breast for both genetic females and trans-women. These creams claim to contain some forms of estrogen and other hormones that may be artificial or derived from plant products. How effective they are depends on the person, but I wouldn't put much faith in them. After all if there was a cream that could do this, it would be flying off the shelves and plastic surgeons would be out of a job.  

As you are already on HRT, I would consult your doctors before adding anything that might contain additional hormones. You don't know how they are going to react and could cause issues. As you are just starting your 4th month on HRT and I would expect you are starting to see the results they are doing to your body. The individuals I've known who have transitioned have taken years for the hormones to do their work, so give them some time. Your breast growth might not be obvious right now but in time they will develop. As far as what to expect... Those who start young, teens or early 20's, may eventually develop to be about equal to their female relatives. Those who are older tend to be about a cup size smaller. Most trans-women I've known have opted for breast enhancement after a few years of HRT. So consult with your doctor and let the hormones do their work.

I wish you the best with your transition, congratulations.

Expertise

I can answer questions regarding male to female cross dressing and related issues. I will not answer any question dealing with pornography. If you are a minor and are asking adult related questions be prepared for me to either reject the question or tell you to ask an adult. Run on questions and that go on and on with various amounts of unrelated details will likely be rejected. I don't have the attention span to read 14 paragraphs crammed in to one about your high school crush before you get to the point. Fantasy and fetish inspired aka (Too good to be true) situations will likely be rejected. I wasn't born yesterday and I've encountered my share of TG fantasy. I can recognize the themes. Fictionmania exist for a reason. I'm a hetro cross dresser, this means I do not date men! I'm happily married with 2 sons. So don't bother asking me for a date... It's not going to happen and I will reject your question.

Experience

I am a life long cross dresser (male to female) and have been presenting in public for the past 10 years. I'm a member of Tri-Ess (Society for the Second Self). I've had the opportunity to get to know 100's of transgender people and have worked though and with those that are new to the transgender community. I have assisted many young and new "girls" when venturing out for the first time and worked with their families to help come to terms with many of the issues related to this life style. I am not a doctor or have any type of degree in this field, but I have cross-dreesed my entire life. Who better to ask a question about transgender issues than a transgender person. I am willing to answer any question I can concerning the Transgender lifestyle however there are some areas I will avoid.

Organizations
Member of Tri-Ess, and Sigma Epsilon. (Society for the Second Self, Atlanta Chapter.)

Education/Credentials
No formal "education" but I have 40 years of experience being a cross dresser. Who better to speak with than someone who has been there, done that, and has the t-shirt. I'm willing to lend an open ear "and shoulder" when necessary to who ever has the need.
