I am 20 years old and half-way through my six-month treatment of Lupron. A week after my third shot my breasts have increased by two cup sizes and one band size seemingly overnight, and they feel very heavy. Is this a side-effect of the shots? Every list of side-effects I have looked at states decrease in breast size, but not increase. Should I expect that my breasts will return to normal after the shots, or will I be stuck with bigger breasts?
Some clinical study results have shown that breast enlargement can occur as a side effect in 7% of patients using Lupron.
This breast change should return to normal after treatment is discontinued.
Be aware about possibility of getting pregnant while on Lupron treatment, because, although the menstrual bleeding can be absent, still, the ovulation can take place as normal.
Check for sure if the breast size enlargement is a pregnancy symptom or not.
