I am a 15 year old teen.
I am deciding to order a Chest Binder #997 from Underworks to hide my man boobs.
Should i be binding at this age? Should i ask my doctor? Will it cause any harmful effects? Or is it safe?
I just want to hide my man boobs !!! So if you have another solution please tell me

Binding won't be harmful but perhaps a snug compression shirt is more useful and will give you a nice chest contour as well.

Talk with your parents and consider surgery. I do not know the specifics of your case so I cannot comment further.

Do you think my man boobs have a chance of going away normally? Is there any herbal treatments ?

There are no herbal treatments.  Some guys go to a nutritional store seeking help and are sold some concoction "guaranteed to work."  Beware -- sometimes the ingredients can enhance your gyne.

Can't answer if your gyne will go away spontaneously -- only time will tell.  You can always wait and observe -- no harm in that.
