I'm not gaining weight, not taking any prescription drugs, and I'm DEFINITELY not pregnant.
I'm about to be 32, I'm quite slender (size 0/1 at 5'10"), and I've been this same size for half my life or longer (reached full height & shoe size around 13, filled out a bit more in the next few years). EXCEPT that my boobs keep getting bigger. At 13 or so, I was an A-cup. At college graduation (21), probably a B-cup. Nothing too weird there.
I'm definitely at least a C-cup now (that's what I'm actually wearing), and considering how my bras are (not) fitting, probably really a D/DD -- a somewhat recent development.
I am NOT gaining weight in any other way I can recognize (I don't own a scale, but all my other clothes still fit fine, and my body otherwise seems like how it normally does). I do not take hormonal contraceptives or any other medication. I am absolutely NOT, and have never been, pregnant (haven't had sex in like a year -- oh well). It hurts -- my breasts typically swell somewhat the week before my period, but it's happening now less than a week after my last period ended; a woman friend of mine has mentioned noticing the change; and I've noticed my male coworkers looking, too (which is something I hadn't ever really noticed before). They are approximately the same size as each other (never really been even-even, but they're certainly as close as they've ever been -- i.e., the growth is not in one breast more than the other), and neither feels unusually lumpy.
I was diagnosed with PCOS several years ago (due to acne and excess hair growth); I did take HCPs for a while (which didn't help either symptom, broke my libido, and made me extremely smad
at all times), but have not taken them at all for at least four years.
I'm afraid I may be a little old for this to be happening (early-to-mid-20's seems to be standard for this, but I'm a bit older -- I didn't menstruate until I was 15; can I tack on a few years because of that?), but have other people had experience with this?
If it's a concern, what should I be concerned about, and what kind of doctor do I need to see? GP? GYN? Endocrinologist?
In case it's not clear, I really don't welcome this breast growth. I eat basically anything (although I limit carbs, I do eat regular hormone-laden meat, cheese, and dairy -- mostly cheese, zero milk -- and small amounts of bread, fruit, and pasta). Any other tips to halt breast growth are welcome, if such things exist (other than weight loss -- I'm skinny enough)!
