Best Answer

hey there. estrogen is released during puberty...theres not too much you can do to force it. though Birth Control pills usually help to release estrogen and foods with natural estrogen like apples, carrots and high-soy foods help too. but it all depends on your genetics as to how your body will react to it all. im on birth control and i grew 1/2 a cup size...but that's it.

At 13 you begin going through puberty. When this happens your testes begin producing testosterone for the first time, some of this testosterone is naturally converted to estrogen, which causes sensitivity and growth of breast tissue. The overgrowth of breast tissue in men is known as Gynecomastia The same thing is happening to girls when they go through puberty, but they have much more estrogen and actually end up growing breasts instead of just a little swelling/discomfort.

What causes sore swollen nipples in a boy age 11?

Males and females make both female and male hormones. The ratio we make depends on our sex. Males make more testosterone than females and females make more estrogen than males. When puberty starts, production of both increases with the dominant one really increasing. Because of this, when a boy starts puberty he also increases his estrogen production. In many boys (about 20%) this causes a temporary growth of breast tissue, a condition called gynecomastia. Nipples will swell, they become more sensitive, they might even get actual breast growth. Fortunately, it's temporary and usually doesn't last more than a year. When testosterone production is at its peak its ratio to estrogen is much higher and the breast symptoms go away. It's the same reason why older women sometimes begin to grow facial hair (estrogen production drops and the ratio is closer), and men have less facial and body hair (testosterone production drops and the ratio is closer).
