What is the Effect of hormonal changes on breasts?

The breasts will be impacted by a number of hormonal swings as women go from pre-puberty through puberty, pregnancy, and menopause.

Hormones released by the ovaries (such as estrogen) stimulate breast growth and development throughout puberty. Following puberty, the hormones estrogen and progesterone will fluctuate throughout a woman's monthly menstrual cycle. Women may have swollen or sensitive breasts at various times of the month as a result of this.

During pregnancy, the body produces more estrogen and progesterone, which stimulates further breast growth and development to prepare women for breastfeeding.

The ovaries cease generating female hormones, including oestrogen, around the time of menopause (perimenopause). Breast tissue shrinks when estrogen levels are low. Monthly menstrual cycles cease after menopause (post-menopause).
