There are ongoing discussions on the web about the effects of these herbal creams and one such discussion can be found here (on a garden website believe it or not!). Its well worth a visit to see what other people think. One of the contributors sent in the following:
According to my research, the most powerful herbs for breast enlargement, and many other good things as well, are the 4 following:
In that order of importance. Buying a pound of each of these is a lot cheaper than buying the pills out there. Just call a health food store. You can make tea out of fenugreek and fennel and or you can just put the herbs in your food. You can just get fenugreek and fennel if you want -they’re the cheapest and best. They’re good for other things too and they’re all good for men as well. I would also combine these with natural progesterone cream on your breasts as well. Morning and evening from day 10 until you start bleeding. You will see a difference and there’s nothing unhealthy about it because these herbs are self regulating and the progesterone is natural too.
If any of you have tried various creams or capsules why not let us know the results so others can benefit from your experience!

Breast implants and connective tissue diseases
You may remember that due to allegations that silicone breast implants caused connective tissue diseases (e.g., systemic lupus erythematosis, rheumatoid arthritis), in 1992 the FDA restricted silicone gel-filled breast implants until further studies could be done. Subsequent studies have failed to show a relationship between the implants and such diseases.
This Danish study looked at 2761 women with breast implants and 8807 control subjects. They found there was no difference in the incidence of connective tissue diseases or cancer in those who had cosmetic surgery with silicone implants and those who had cosmetic surgery without any implants. Then the implant and the control group were compared to the general Danish population rates of connective tissue diseases. Both of those groups had higher rates of connective tissue diseases than the general population.
This means that the implants were NOT associated with increased rates of connective tissue diseases but women who undergo any form of cosmetic surgery probably have higher rates. This is not to say that women with breast implants do not have a higher rate of local breast problems such as implant rupture, thickened capsule formation and other localised reactions. They do. It happens in over 30% of women with the implants. But the evidence continues that the implants do not cause systemic connective tissue disease problems. Read the full report here.
