I'll tell you now that I don't think the last two are either of them any good for most women. As you said yourself, some get good results, most do not.
Something not even on your list that you maybe ought to consider trying would be shatavari root extract, aka asparagus root extract depending where you buy it from. The important part is the latin name is asparagus offiicinalis. "Asparagus" the vegetable is a completely different asparagus species, just so you know.
Shatavari works by unknown means, as in, they've narrowed it down to two possibles, but aren't sure. What it does, however, is increases alveolar glandular tissue, increasing breast size even when you are lacking in breast fat. It should also improve the look of your areola and nipples, it might make you produce milk, because that's what it was originally used by women for, breastfeeding mothers not producing enough milk would take shatavari root to increase their supply.
Other than that, you're going to need to ask yourself how much you can afford to spend on NBE, this is not an inexpensive pursuit when you're taking it seriously. Expect to easily spend more than $100 US a month even on the most inexpensive and basic of plans.
Might look into getting one then, I've checked prices and the cheapest one is already £79... phew! Is there any specific test I need to look for? I'm just on the NHS website (UK) and it's such a mess of tests, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be looking for!
Thank you for your suggestions, btw- yeah, the reviews for those two seemed great at first and I'm a really lazy person, but after I came across this forum I realised BA is probably a scam and I just have to work hard at it
I'm just a poor uni student, but I'm not a very healthy person in general so I think the hormone test might be a good start in pointing my diet and habits in the right direction.
edit: just found a test that literally says Hormone Check, which checks: LH, FSH, Prolactin, Oestradiol (17-Beta). I'm guessing that's the one I need.
