Breast Asymmetry is a lot more common than we think, but it usually raises a concern in every other girl’s head. The prevalence of this condition affects more than half of all women and despite these large numbers, there is little knowledge around this issue. In collaboration with The Channel 46, Dr. Manju Gupta, Senior Consultant – Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, Motherhood Hospitals, sheds light on the causes of uneven breasts and what it may signify.
A woman’s breasts are said to be symmetrical if they are equal in size, shape, projection, and elevation. But, the reality is that very few women truly have this. One breast typically differs from the other in size, shape, or position on the chest. Asymmetry describes this discrepancy between the two breasts.
]…the reason for your unequal breasts may be due to typical anatomical variances. The majority of our physical components, including our legs and eyebrows, are not perfectly symmetrical. So, the reason for your unequal breasts may be due to typical anatomical variances.
Even if both breasts cease developing at the same time, one breast may begin to develop before the other when hormones are shifting during puberty.
The first day of ovulation is when breast asymmetry is the least pronounced. During each phase of your menstrual cycle, your breast tissue changes. For instance, increased blood flow and water retention may cause breasts to enlarge. When you are ovulating, they could seem fuller and more sensitive. When menstruating, they contract. The first day of ovulation is when breast asymmetry is the least pronounced.
