Ever since you’ve hit puberty, your breasts, whether big or small, may have become a focal point in your life. Breasts may typically get a lot of attention, but there is still an air of mystery surrounding breasts. The staff at Buzzfeed took it upon themselves to answer some of the most common questions about breasts you might be too uncomfortable to ask yourself.
Here are the top four questions about breasts, answered:
1. Is it normal to have one breast bigger than the other?
Yes, that’s completely normal. Most women do not have identically-sized breasts. However, if you are having trouble finding a properly-fitting bra for both breasts, you may want to consider using silicone inserts or having cosmetic surgery to make them more even in size.
2. Is it normal to have hair around my areola?
Yes, it’s normal to have hair in the area surrounding your nipple. If bothersome, you can cut the hairs, but try to prevent ingrown hairs by avoiding shaving or plucking.
3. Can exercise make my breasts bigger?
No, exercising cannot make your breasts bigger. You can engage your pectoral muscles with exercises, which can give your breasts a lift.
4. Should I be worried about my nipples leaking?
Possibly. If you are pregnant or have recently given birth, nipple discharge is considered normal. To rule out hormone or thyroid problems, speak with your health care provider and make an appointment for an examination.
