    I really understand your situation I wear magic bra's to make me feel better. Although I feel very awkward when it comes down to having sex boys seeing my boobs I get very embarrassed although I'm only 17 I'd love for a boob job which is probably wrong friends do say I'm being silly but it's really discomforting... I've tried exercises for the chest area but still no luck...

    I am 15 and have really bad stretch marks around my thighs, back and breasts. I lack self confident because of these so I won't go swimming with friends, or go to the beach. I haven't told anybody about them because I am embarrased. Is there any cheap way to get rid of them, or just fade them? Thankyou, Lauren.

    I am 18 and was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 8. It sounds like a posibility and I can relate to it because I was expelled from school in year 10 (age 15) and since then have had to sort myself out pretty much. I've been on loads of different dosages and medications and have got the right one for me now. Everyones different with it as I have a friend who's also 18 who has had ADHD diagnosed since he was about 14 and he takes no medication as he learnt to control it better. See someone, take advice and see how you feel

    I can relate to you on this one. Im a 25 year old female and has recently just be diagnoised with Adult ADHD. Reading your comment I noticed you saying you droped out of education few times, A few years back i was the same, Just about managed to get through college, however I had two atempts of going to University and only lasted two months. I always felt different like there was a blanklet covering me. I battled with depression for few years and that was when I did my own research. ( what the internet is good at) I researched ADHD and i was surprised that all the symtoms of it i have and have had all my life! I managed to get my doctor to refer me and now my life is on track with the help of different kinds of therpy and medication. hope this is some help.

    i am 30 yrs old and have a total lack of libido i have been to my doctor and she sent me to a sex therapist who i seen for 3mts and after we finished our meetings she sent me back to my doctor who then told me that there was nothing else she can do for me i have been with my partner for 8yrs and this is getting really affected by my lack of libido and i dont know where else to turn for help

    It sounds like you may have an infection, if you dont dry under them properly after a bath or shower it keeps the area moist which can cause sores leading to infections, maybe you should go and see your GP. im sure they will be able to rid you of infection and advise you on daily care of your breasts

    Hi i do dry under them and have to rub cream under them its not so bad now thanking you, still smells allot of the time but not as sweaty as i call it still have the black and white heads which id love to know how to get rid of if you have any tips of how to do that please? x

    I suffered from an eating disorder at a young age and has been ongoing for about 8 years. I am not as bad as what it was but still lack confidence from my small breasts which never properly developed because of my illness. if I could have a breast enlargement i'm positive that it would help me feel in proportion of my body, where as they are currently a 32AA for a 22 year old. would I be entitled to a breast enlargement?

    Since breast feeding my left nipple has become inverted. I am very upset by this as i was teased at school and work about my small breasts and now to top it off this happens. Doctor has told me i have to go private for corrective surgey, not nhs. Is this right as it is the nhs that convince you breast feeding has so many benefits. I have only had pain and now an inverted nipple and more lack of confidence.

    Hi Rihanna, Your boobs dont seem to much of a worry, if your breasts fit a 32b and one is really to big for that bra and the other is to small, that is when you need to be concerned. But from what i have read you dont seem to have much to worry about. Your bikini thing... dont worry about what people think! Everyone has there own problems. If its getting you down go to your GP trust me they are really helpful and explain you think you have Assymetic breasts. :) x

    I am 13 and have size C breasts, I recently watched the program about breasts on embarrassing boddies and I am worried about the 'mouse tumor' or something like that, a lump in my breast that I can move around. I have it in both of my breasts and they have been there for as long as my breasts have so I have no idea if it is normal or not. I would also find it embarrassing talking to my mam and doctor about it so I don't know what to do!!!

    You could email your Doctor privately or phone your local hospital to have a check up? sorry if not any help :)

    Hi, i have very very small breasts, in fact bras do not fit, i am no longer skinny since having my son either so very very out of proportion. I have always had problems with my breasts, they are so small, i couldnt even breast feed, i didnt produce any milk either, they are sort of like tubular maybe (people call me ski slopes)! It has bothered me for many many years, i am now 29, i cannot afford as a single parent breast enlargement, but they affect me so much, i cannot hold down relationships due to my lack of confidence, if i have a boyfriend i go to bed in my bra and a top, i constantly wear huge gel inserts in my bra so i look more womanly and my clothes look better on me but these are so uncomfortable as they got hot & stick to you, im always red raw when i take my bra off at night, i just dont know what to do as i cannot afford surgery, im sick of hiding behind this and chicken fillets too! I have suffered with depression and i could never give the doctor an answer why im depressed, i think this may be a good part of it, ive stopped taking the anti depressants now and i just do not know where to turn - does anyone have any suggestions whatsoever please??? Ive heard sometimes but in very special circumstances the nhs can help but im not sure my cicumstances are severe enough, always i think depends on your location, i live in derby, thank you x

    Is the lack of breast tissue formed at puberty the result of a lack of a particular hormoan? Also if transexual men are given hormoan tablets to help and encourage them to develop breasts why are women with little or no chest not offered the same treatment?

    I agree totally! I Dont see why they cant give it to females.

    Hi im aged 16 and i am morbidly obese. I do not eat that much but i lack exercise. I lack self confidence to go to the gym to loose weight because i worry about what others think, especially about my moob because i think my moobs are extremely similar to female breasts. *Can anybody tell me if there is any tests that can check for female hormones in male breasts and is it easy to test? *Any good cheap ways i can loose weight in the comfort of my own home or in an private area. (I have access to a woodland a 5-10minute walk away and a trampoline) which i rarely use due to bad weather Thanks in advance Mike

    If Dr Christian, does not answer, I suggest you hop over to a Doctor, preferable a female, and speak to her, overall what is happening.. Its becoming more that abreast issue, it may have started that way...Yes there is stuff to make you put on weight. Yes it would be good also to have some blood tests done to see if everything is ok.. In regards to marriage, bodies dont stop people from marrying, people fall for the person as a whole, not peices.. Love is something that just happens, you can know someone for years and nothing, then something happens and wam!!! so dont think its all about body..In meantime, please pick up your spirit and do something pro active and speak to another woman, a female doctor..

    I have suffered with tuberous breasts for years now, and i have finally-after 9 years of worrying and deliberating-plucked up the courage to make an appointment with my GP this friday. I am so nervous and scared of showing my GP my breasts. But i have had enough of the lack of confidence in myself and i have never shown any of my boyfriends my breasts. It is depressing and i just hope that my GP refers me and they decide i can have an op done through the nhs. If i had the money i would do it straight away. Can i ask those above who have been through the nhs, which area are you situated in? I am in Northamptonshire. Would really like to know. Thanks.

    Hi i cant tell u how glad i am to come across ur comment. I am in the exact same situation as u. I have been to see my gp about my issue and she has sent off a recommendation for me to the nhs for a breast augmentation. I am 20 now and been feeling like this since i was 14. I have no one to talk to about this except my bf. and cant even tell my mum as i feel it will upset her. i am very petite at 5''1 and a size 6 uk i feel i look quite curvy considering how small i am except for my boobs. (if i can call them that!) doesnt help that ive been called some rather nasty things when i was younger ( about my chest) it really gets me down daily im not planning on looking like a sl*t or p*rn st*r with huge fakes just even a C cup would be perfect. i hate bra shopping or being topless infront of my bf. i just feel inadequate to what he likes or what hes seen before? dnt knw if u get me? I have also recently been feeling strange and have booked an appointment with my dr as i have strong signs of depression and i think it started with all of this. I will write again when i have been to see the.

    I am in the exact same position apart from im 19, i have felt like this for years just dont know what to do about it, i have a curvy body and get down because my boobs dont go with my body :( it is so depressing i want to make appointment with dr but im scared they will just say there is nothing we can do. !

    Hi ladies, Looking at all your comments on here has just touched me. I too have tuberous breasts. I understand all of your concerns and battles with your body image as I went through the same thing. I hated my breasts and thought I was so ugly because of them. It may seem crazy but I have learned to accept them and love them. I too have seen the internet sites that call our breasts deformed and abnormal, I refuse to accept such a label for myself. All of us ladies were created in the perfect image of God and we are fearfully and wonderfully made. All breasts are breasts. Just because ours are a little different or rare, doesn't make them any less what they are - breasts. I hope this is helping somebody out there. I just don't want every woman to think that the only answer for them is to have corrective surgery. The best answer is to LOVE YOURSELF. Right now, many women are being plagued by their breasts, every part of their self image is tied up in their breasts. But we are all so much more than that. Focus on the areas of your body that you love. Maybe you have great legs, beautiful eyes, nice bum. Your breasts don't make up 100% of your beauty, they are only a fraction. What we lack in the boob department I am certain God has given you a stronger characteristic elsewhere. A confident body image doesn't begin with 'normal' breasts. It begins with loving yourself enough to know you are just as beautiful with or without tuberous breasts. Hope this has helped someone. Be encouraged, know that there is at least one of us who has discovered how to love her breasts just the way they are, so you can too!

    I'm 21, and have two children. My breasts started to develop at the age of 9 and from 13 onwards have stayed the same size, bar pregnancy. That 'size' is a 28aa. I cannot find supportive bras to fit me anywhere and have spent my whole bra wearing days wearing bras which are too big...even a 28aa hangs off me! Recently though, I've realised it's not so much the lack of size that's contributing to my bra dilemma, but in fact it's their shape... I'm almost certain I have tubular breasts - they are widely spaced, I have a distinct lack of breast tissue, and my breasts seem to stop just under the nipple. My nipples, apart from when I'm cold are puffy and large, especially in comparison to the rest of the 'breast' When I bend down they look like what I can only bescribe as 'udders', not round and feminine, but elongated! My breasts do not change in regards to weight gain, and have only got larger for the gestation of my pregnancies, and for a small time afterwards, before the milk would dry up of it's own accord, and prevent me from continuing to breastfeed my children. My partner has never seen my breasts, and I have not took my boys swimming at all. I was measured for a bra in Debenhams ONCE, and the woman measured me a 28aa, and laughed saying they didn't stock a size that small. I cried as soon as she left the room. I would love to apply for the show...however the thought of viewers (especially people I know) having to witness this obvious defoformity, really scares me. I admit though - I do need something done about this, I've struggled with severe depression and anxiety for 8 years because of this.

    Hi, I'm 17 and I've just been diagnosed with Hypoplastic breasts (where the breasts never developed/matured properly and theres an extreme lack of breast tissue and milk glands). I am very suprised as to why you don't have any information on this, although I do understand that it is a very rare 'abnormality', but I am annoyed as there are other girls out there who may have the same 'abnormality' as I do and cannot find any information on this.

    My friend I'll tell you one thing, a few years back I could see that my breasts started to get a little flabby and falling even like women's breasts. I started to get worried because I saw some men with this type of problem and I can say that is a horrible thing! I look on the internet about this issue and I could see that a lot has to do with diet, lifestyle, lack of exercise and even hormone problem!

    I am 47 years old and over the last 2 menstrural cycles my breasts have increased from a 'B' cup to a 'DD'! Throughout my life, as a sports enthusiast, I have had irregular periods, but over the last few years have become regular. I have recently had a screening as I get very lumpy during my cycle and worried because of my lack of experience of the feamle cycle and associated changes. My breasts are very heavy and sore and lumpy... Should I worry?

    @Ashley I'm am also 14. Unlike you, I have large breast (36DDD) but like you, I have saggy breasts. I can't get any surgery done obviously and people say that excersice won't do anything. IDK what to do? I guess I just have to use confidence to make up for the lack of "perkiness" LOL

    i'm 21 a mother of two, i have very horrible saggy breasts that makes me very uncomfortable and lack confidence. my self esteem is very low as i have a other problems that are embarrassing down below my private area. i do not have a partner because its very terrifying for me to undress my self for any one to see .please can you help me !!!

    hey, I'm Georgia. I'm 15 and a 34B. My actual breasts aren't too small but I find they look it because of the lack of cleavage. They're quite far apart and I hate it. Is there anything I can do to make them have more cleavage? x

    I am a woman in my 20s with labia that are a little larger than normal. I used to be very self conscious, but let me tell you, I have been intimate (sex, receiving oral, etc.) with dozens of men from all over the world (I travel a lot) and NOT ONE ever said anything negative about my labia, seemed turned off, or anything. Many of them even commented on how sexy my labia or body in general was. Maybe large labia are in the minority, but who cares? Large breasts, red hair, hour glass figures etc. are also in the minority and that doesn't change the fact that those attributes can be sexy. All you girls are young; you will learn that having large labia is not a big deal at all. Love your body for what it is and what you can do with it. And be confident. While no one has said anything negative about my labia, I have had several guys say something negative about my self consciousness and anxiety about my labia. If anything is a turn off, it's a lack of self esteem and a lack of confidence.

    My 4 year old son was diagnosed with PS. He is missing all or part of his right pectoral muscle and we've recently noticed some lack of strength in his upper body. Has anyone else experienced this lack of strength? Does Physical therapy help with this?

    Hi my son is 14 months old and we are currently waiting to find out if he has PS. Was this something quickly diagnosed for your son. Thanks x

    Yes, the diagnosis was pretty quick. We originally only noticed the small hand size (on the right side only) and some webbing between his fingers so the doctor first called it something else. When he was 18 months and went back for another check up, we had also noticed the difference in his chest on the right side. These symptoms were really all he needed to make the diagnosis. He said he could tell by looking at him that his pectoral muscle was missing. We haven't had any sort of scan to see which muscles are there or aren't there...but wondering if it'd be helpful to find that out? Hope you get some answers soon! What tests are they doing that are taking a while?

    You can use your tongue. Women love that. Mix it up though. Most women get more frustrated with the lack of closeness than the lack of orgasm.
