We can make the diosgenin chemical present in the root and bulb of wild yam into estrogen, which is a reproductive hormone with a dominant influence on the size of boobs.

The estrogen made from diosgenin is not estrogen (the one present in the body). It is phytoestrogen, a dietary estrogen with the ability to mimic estrogen once you consume it. Now, the good news with phytoestrogen is it is safe to use.

Although you should exercise care with the phytoestrogen-rich item you are consuming to avoid health complications. 

Take, for instance, wild yam can ‌support breast enlargement via various forms, there are wild yam tea, cream, and pills. If you are not careful, you can be a victim of scam products. Another risk is you may be unsure of the right dosage that will guarantee changes in your breast size. However, you can speak to a health professional for guidance.

What Is The Most Effective Recipe For Increasing Breast Size?

Of the many available techniques claimed to be effective in using wild yam to increase breast size, the most effective one is to use wild yam and fenugreek seeds together. Fenugreek seeds are estrogen-rich foods for increasing the estrogen level in the body (Internal linking).

So, how do you combine the dosage of fenugreek seeds with wild yam to ensure rapid results with your breast size increase?

Follow the simple recipe listed below and your breast can ‌smile at the prospect of feeling bouncier and bigger. Or you don’t like that?

First off;

Get yourself wild yam in powder form. If you cannot get a pure one, you can resort to using pills. In fact, many sources claim that is difficult to get wild yam that has not been mixed with other ingredients on the market.


If you are using pills, take 3 pills before breakfast. After eating, you can mix 5 teaspoons of fenugreek seeds powder with water, then drink. Fenugreek seeds like wild yam are bitter, so prepare your mind.

Other forms of taking wild yam for breast growth via the mouth include wild yam tea, tablet, tincture, or capsule.

Or, you could use both the fenugreek seeds and wild yam to make a potent cream for breast enlargement.

Take wild yam and fenugreek seeds and mix them together. The number of spoons really is insignificant, just ensure you used them in quantity 1:1. 


Add groundnut oil to the mixture. Just make sure the groundnut oil is 3 times the quantity of wild yam and fenugreek seeds. 


Apply the cream on the mounds of flesh on your breast regularly.

What Are The Adverse Effects Of Using Wild Yam For Breast Growth?

At normal doses, wild yam used via the mouth is safe to use. However, you may ‌see adverse side effects if used in more than normal doses. Some of the side effects are:

  • It may be unsafe for nursing mothers and pregnant women
  • People suffering from health conditions, such as breast cancer, fibroids, and uterine cancer may have compounded health problems by using wild yam.
  • Some may become nauseous, vomit, or have digestive problems.

When used as skin cream, there are no adverse side effects except for those who have an allergy to wild yam.


Wild yam may not be the perfect solution for breast enlargement, especially for those who are after quick results. This is because there are no human studies from veritable sources to back this claim. 

So, it is more like a gamble. For more rapid results, I suggest ‌you do not rely on wild yam alone. Include other estrogen-rich foods like nuts in your diet and back it up with exercises that support the growth of your boobs.
