Methi or fenugreek is known to have various health benefits. From helping you manage lifestyle condition like diabetes, heart diseases, and skin conditions, it also helps lactating mothers produce breast milk. Fenugreek can do wonders for women. It helps in improving estrogen production, especially after menopause and yes, helps increase the size of your breast too.
While there are no clinically published data but it is believed that fenugreek help increase breast size, as it is a hormonally active herb. The phytoestrogen present in fenugreek improves estrogen levels, which help in cell division and enhances the size of the breast. The best way to have fenugreek to increase breast size is to consume it in the form of herbal capsules . But before you reach for these over-the-counter capsules, have a chat with your doctor because increased estrogen levels can also increase your risk of breast cancer, especially if you are menopausal.
Consuming fenugreek or methi during perimenopause and postmenopause helps as during those times the estrogen level fluctuates and falls to an all time low respectively. Lack of estrogen in the body can lead to a lot of issues like bloating, vaginal dryness, breast tenderness, insomnia, fatigue, night sweats and other symptoms of menopause. Studies have shown that fenugreek seeds have the capability to improve estrogen level and can be used as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy or HRT . HRT is usually suggested to women who suffer from severe complications of low estrogen, where the above-mentioned symptoms turn from mild to severe or worse.
If you are concerned about your breast size and want to try fenugreek or methi, here's how you can do it:

There is always a risk of elevated estrogen and breast cancer post menopause.
