Breast Enhancement Pills for Teens

11/23/2007

Question:

I am 18 years old and I am thinking about buying breast enhancement pills to make my breast bigger because I am dissatisfied with their size. Is it okay to take the pills at such a young age or should I wait and see if they will get bigger as I get older? I tried eating a lot of fat food to see if I can gain weight and get fuller but I have fast metabolism and nothing seems to go anywhere I am still 105 pounds. Any help? Thank You

Answer:

There is not any evidence these work, and no evidence they are safe, either, so I cannot help much. When trying to modify your body a physician visit and lab tests are usually needed.
