Does Being Overweight Or Having Large Breasts Make It Harder To Breastfeed
Breastfeeding is providing nutrition to an infant using breat milk either directly by infant latching and sucking on the nipple or by feeding via bottle with expressed breast milk (when baby has difficulty suckling). Breast milk is the best milk for any baby but ...Read more
As I have become fat, my breasts are saggy. Even if I lose weight, they will remain so. Is there any way to make them even a little better naturally?
Not on earth: The support structure inside breasts influences how they hang. Such traits are usually inherited just like other bodily characteristics. On Earth, we have gravity, so some breasts will sag if they were destined to sag. Without gravity, like on the International Space Station, breasts shouldn't sag, but that's a question best directed to a woman astronaut. However, becoming slimmer is a good idea. ...Read more
No and no: Bras aren't bad. They can be really useful in preventing breasts from bouncing around during exercise and movement. Of course, not every woman needs a bra for exercise issues, but there are some other reasons to wear one. And, no, bras don't cause sagging (gravity causes that)... and genetics play a big role. ...Read more
All my immediate family are overweight does that mean its harder for me to lose weight than someone else or that im more likely to be overweight?
Well,...: A recent study came out that was titled "It is not in the genes, it is what you eat." That being said, I believe there is certainly a possible genetic predisposition to obesity, BUT with the proper diet and exercise program, this can be easily affected to be healthier and at a more proper weight. Eat well, exercise often, be regimented, avoid temptations, stay well! ...Read more

Would weak abs/stomach muscles and being thin when remaining pregnant cause a woman to have a 'torpedo belly' shape as she gets bigger with baby?
Not necessarily so: If you look at the cover of a "bodybuilder" mag you can see the anatomy of the surface of your abdominal wall. It is composed of several muscles and also connective tissue. Exercising can build up the muscle tissue but not the connective tissue. You don't know how big your uterus will grow and push outward on your abdominal wall but "qué sera sera". ...Read more

Can the bcp sptintec make me infertile after being on it 3 years or will it just make it harder to get pregnant?
Neither: Birth control pills will not affect your fertility except while you are on them. They do not cause aging of ovaries, they dont cause uterine problems, etc. That being said. Women have changes to their body all the time. It is possible that a woman's body will chance while they are on the pills and they may not know it. Then when trying to get pregnant they find out. ...Read more
If I have too much estrogen, or not enough progesterone, does that make me more susceptible to breast cancer?
Breast cancer risk: Maybe: some breast cancers take up estrogen as a sort of growth hormone to encourage growth, so too much estrogen can speed growth of these cancers. There is a very small increase in breast cancer risk with estrogen only given postmenopausally for the symptoms. Relative increase in Progesterone only is associated with some breast disorders also but cancer risk is unclear. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If a woman were to get a breast lift because of sag, but with no implants, do they count as fake breasts?
No: A breast lift is not the same as breast implants. "fake" is a term you never have to use, regardless of which choice you make. You have choices, including doing both a lift and implants. Take a friend with you to your plastic surgery consult, ask to see photographs of each option. Take time to contemplate which option will be best for you before committing. Okay to go for two opinions. Be well. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
