@pictureaccount:  As long as you just start taking the new prescription immediately once you’re done with your current one you’ll be fine. It’s just swapping it out for a different version. The lower dose is still safe or they wouldn’t market it as birth control. If you’re nervous though use back up for a week for peace of mind. I wouldn’t be worried though.

Conctaceptive use shouldn’t change breast size. Maybe you gained a tiny bit of weight and it just went straight to your boobs? And your doctor is right, as long as you switch without a delay you’ll be protected.

@pictureaccount:  Yeah a 34 C and a 30 DD are actually the same cup just on a different band. Most women don’t reach physical maturity until 20 so you might have still been growing. Also, bra manufacturers aren’t exact even within the same brand.

No sure about your breast size changing, but I know when I was on a different pill than my current one, my skin did not like it!

As far as the other form of contraception, I thought that anytime you got on a new form, whether switching pills or going to the shot or something, that you were supposed to use a back up form for a month to ensure it fully kicks in… But your doctor should know best, and if you’re really concerned, I’d use a back up form just in case =)
