By the time we enter our 20’s our breasts are fully developed and that’s the most that they are going to grow however they may temporarily swell. Temporary swelling can be due to hormonal changes or change in body weight. Swelling due to hormonal changes is one of the most common problems that almost every woman goes through.

If the shape of the breasts change other than these reasons then it’s important to get them checked by the doctor.
- Skin Darkening:
The color of nipples may change due to hormonal changes in the body. Some doctors believe that it’s a first sign of pregnancy when the color of nipples darkens when others argue its due to change in the hormones and some people may experience the difference even when they are not pregnant. The color lightens as the hormonal balance is back to normal or after pregnancy.
As we near menopause our cycles become shorter and we get our periods earlier due to change in hormones the breast tissues get extra sensitive and tender.
