  • If you've gained weight or gone on the pill, that can cause them to grow. Otherwise, I think it's unusual for them to still be growing at 21.

  • yeah its possibe...it also depends on when you hit puberty as well...some ppl dont start their period until 14-17 which is not the average age
    but also if you take birth control it may also have an effect

  • Breasts can store fat just like any other part of the body. So yes.

  • Also I believe your Cycle can help you go up or down A Cup Size! Sometimes breast tenderness affects me & mine Swell & Hurt!! There is different reasons for this but they vary! You are Young!! So they can grow or decrease as you gain or lose weight too!
