I am 54, and over the last 5 years or so, I have gradually, and significantly, lost my breasts. Though I was never large, at least I had SOME breasts! I was a "nearly B". Now I am not even an A. I am in great physical shape but this is way more than just a reduction in size to to physical activity. It has severely (!!!) affected my self esteem and my desire for sex. I am otherwise happily married but for how long when I refuse to allow my husband to see or touch my new "lack" of breasts. Can you help me?????

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Breast atrophy could be due to menopausal onset. If it is affecting your social and sexual life, you should consider reporting to your doctor/gynecologist for further assistance. Further evaluation done would help to know if HRT or use of estrogen creams can be of help. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
