This is slightly an awkward topic to write about, but here goes.

Before I was diagnosed with CD, 3 years ago, my breasts were a lot bigger than they are now. Okay, maybe not THAT much bigger, but I have a pretty small frame and they were noticeably bigger. I've had a couple flare-ups since then, and my weight has fluxuated understandably, but I've been in remission since like April and my breasts are not coming back. I used to have 32Cs, and now I barely have enough to justify wearing a B cup. I miss having natural cleavage!

What's worse is I think my boob-fat has gone into my belly. With their depletion and its increase, They're pretty much all the same size, it's terrible.

Will this get better? Ever? Please? My self-confidence shouldn't be so dependant on the size of my breasts, I know, but I just miss being able to think "I may be sick all the time, and look like crap when I am, but at least I have one physical feature to be proud of"

Hi Maria Your right about weight lost and shrivelled breast (hands 0ff on this one guys).Mine went way down when I lost weight and lo and behold they are big as ever now. Your weight going up and down will effect them .I have read some about misplaced fat though and CD .I think it was do to pred. though. Give it some more time it was my booty that got small not much to sit on till the pred. took over,now I have lots. Hope you feel better soon maybe you could focus on earrings for awile to give you that extra feel good thing or make- up .I bought some nice long dangle earrings and just love them. lol gail

Maria, interesting post. I lost a cup size before going on Remicade. I have gained all my weight back since being on remicade but have not regained the full cup size. I have however, added quiet a bit of weight around the mid section which I have never had before.

sometimes the right birth control can bring them back. I agree though, they are the first thing I lose when I lose weight and last thing I gain when I put it on.

Mine are completely gone too, it may be just where i was used to having them swollen for being pregnant for two years straight. Who knows? But I see that mine are a lot smaller here lately, but how much smaller can I be I only weigh 115 and am 5'6.
