Progesterone cream and wild yam cream are frequently employed to aid in breast enlargement. Though there are a wide variety of healthful effects resulting in proper female hormonal balance, breast enlargement is one of the most interesting and noticeable effects.
Before you can understand why progesterone cream and/or wild yam cream can work for breast enlargement, you must understand what progesterone is and the role this important hormone plays in the body.
Progesterone is a female sex hormone. Progesterone is the most potent natural progestational (encouraging pregnancy) hormone. During pregnancy, progesterone is also produced by the placenta. Progesterone regulates the female reproductive functions together with estrogen and plays a particular role in the maintenance of pregnancy.
Progesterone plays a major role in regulating the menstrual cycle. It enhances mood, helps protect against certain cancers, and reduces or stops bone loss (osteoporosis). It is important to know the proper time and dosage which varies with different circumstances.
Synthetic hormones which have an effect similar to that of progesterone are called progestins.
Progesterone is a hormone that is found in relation to estrogen. During the monthly menstrual cycle, progesterone levels increase before ovulation, to help prepare the body for possible pregnancy. Low levels of progesterone are frequently found in women who suffer from PMS.
As far as the breasts are concerned, progesterone stimulates the breast tissue to grow - both the mammary glands and the associated tissue in the breasts. Some women have reported growth of up to 2 cup sizes from progesterone cream alone. But remember, the cream only works in this way when applied directly to the breasts.
Wild yam cream contains compounds produced by the wild yam that are chemically and molecularly identical to progesterone. When applied topically, the progesterone-like compounds in wild yam cream penetrate the skin and have a localized reaction. Therefore, for breast enlargement wild yam cream is applied to the breasts only.
Studies seem to indicate that synthetic progesterone, called progestins, can have dangerous side-effects. As far as researchers know, non-synthetic progesterone (from wild yam cream) do not have these side-effects and is therefore far more desirable.
