@busybee3791:  that degree of breast tenderness all of the time doesn’t sound like a side effect of the pill. Are you having any other unusual symptoms?

@busybee3791:  weight gain could be a side effect of starting the pill. I would talk to your doctor about your side effects and maybe take a pregnancy test just to be sure

@busybee3791:  I did get the same when I was on the pill. Now have the Mirena IUD and get extreme tenderness from time to time (not the usual cycle, because I don’t really have one). It never hurts to ask the doctor, or even call the surgery and speak to the nurse. If she/he doesn’t know the answer, they can check with the doctor and get back to you. I also do a pregnancy test every few months – probably pointless but there is a very small failure rate and doing the test offers peace of mind.

@busybee3791:  I get breat tenderness, but nothing that severe. Usually just a tad sore to the touch but thats it. Mine also get huge when I take the pill and get smaller during my placebo week. 

If this is new, and from what you say, extreme I would def take a pregnancy test!!

I used to get terrible breast tenderness from time to time on the pill, generally it was because my breasts were growing. Have you been fitted for a bra recently? If you are wearing the wrong size it makes the problem far worse.

I used to take vitamin E to aleviate the pain, it helped enough.
