Most women aren’t able to notice the changes that happen to their brea$ts as they grow older. It might be related to pregnancy, or hormonal changes, or the menstrual cycle, or even age. Surprisingly, as you get older, your brea$ts change. See the changes that your brea$ts undergo in the 20s, 30s and 40s. This should help you understand what to expect in the future, so that you don’t feel uncomfortable, since everyone goes through the same process.
1. Brea$ts in 20s
Weights of most women in their 20s fluctuate a lot, meaning their brea$ts change a lot too.
Many women get pregnant when they are in their 20s, which leads to increase in brea$t size due to lactation and increase in weight. After pregnancy, the brea$t size usually remains the same or gets slightly smaller or might even get larger.
Fibrocystic change is common, and leads to formation of lumps in brea$ts. Normally, it occurs in women in their 20s. During changes in levels on estrogen, swollen lumps can occur.
4. Brea$ts in 30s
In the 30s, your body has gone through multiple cycles of weight gain and loss, whcih leads to stretching of brea$t skin. If you experience extreme stretching, it is advised to consult a doctor.
5. Brea$ts in 40s
Menopause occurs during this time, leading to major changes in the brea$ts. Due to menopause, less estrogen is produced by the ovaries,which leads to involution of brea$ts. Brea$ts no longer remain firm since the tissues start getting replaced by fat.
The process is not smooth and uniform, since some tissues might shrink, while others might get replaced by more fat.
7. Everyone experiences this
Major changes occur during pregnancy, but all the other changes come naturally for every woman as they get older.
