Puberty is a rather difficult and problematic period in the life of not only a girl, but also her parents, since it is accompanied by both physiological and psychological changes. Breast growth is one of the first signs of the onset of puberty. It begins, as a rule, at the age of 9-10 years, while many girls are interested in the question - how long this process will last.
Intimate questions about how many years a woman begins menopause, how many years a man's penis grows (or, as it is also called, a penis), when the growth of mammary glands stops, young people are very worried. However, they often hesitate to ask their parents about it.
Breast growth lasts until the birth of the first child
Scientists have proven that the size and shape of a woman's breasts continues to change throughout a woman's life, although in a more mature age this is practically not felt. In general, breast growth ends with the end of the transitional age, that is, for most girls this happens at the age of 17-18. Menstruation can serve as a guide here - as a rule, after a year or two after the cycle is completely normalized, the breast stops growing. There is also a different opinion among physicians. Some of them believe that breast growth stops, not after the end of puberty, but after the first birth. While the woman is breastfeeding her baby, her breasts will be slightly enlarged.
Of course, it is obvious that after childbirth, the breast increases, but at the same time, a dilemma arises - whether such a change should be considered growth or just a temporary deformation.
Breast growth factors
Many other factors can influence growth dynamics and breast size. First, genetics is one such factor. If you are wondering how old your bust will grow, you can simply ask your mom, grandmother, or another close relative about their similar experiences. By the way, the breast size of all maternal women does not coincide very rarely. Hormones also play an important role in the process of breast growth, if a girl's female type predominates, her breasts will grow faster and will be quite voluminous.
If there is not enough estrogen (namely, the so-called female hormones) in the body, the mammary glands may develop out of time and unevenly.
Among the secondary factors affecting the process of breast growth in a girl, one can single out such as nationality, health status, quality of food, geographic place of residence. For example, girls who were born and live in the south or east develop a little faster than their northern and western counterparts. The presence of a sufficient amount of proteins, fats and vitamins in the diet also indirectly affects the growth of the mammary glands.
