Breast development: Breast development also is dependent on estrogen and progesterone. Typically one sees breast budding as the first sign of puberty, and the period as the last sign. Breasts will continue to develop. But not all women develop large breasts. Some women have little or no development. If you are concerned please see your gynecologist.
