Ortho
I was on the pill for 2 years and experienced no breast enlargement. Although I guess some women may..It just all depends on how your hormoned react to it. I didnt get any side affects from it!

I wish I wouldve gotten the huge breast siede affect!! Cool

Lol, sarah is right-it might be from the hormones. But I havent heard anyone get that, and my sisters are on it too but not that kinda reaction!

I am on ortho-tricyclen, and my breasts will get slightly swollen right before my period arrives.

I have never noticed any swelling any other time though.

It can happen 2 some woman mainly due to fluids in the body (i think) but unfortunately, it aint happened 2 me!

I am on ortho and my breasts have grown a full cup size. I think it is due to the fact that the pills are too strong for me.

To you lucky ladies whose breasts grew...
Do you remember which birth control you were on?
It's weird how a couple of you had growth initially and then it stopped, and another didn't have growth until 6 months. Also, are you all pretty young???....I am 27 and I didn't know if there was a cut off age at which we might be lucky enough to experience some breast growth.

Hi
So do the brands that they sell on the internet work? I been looking at many websites and it said best of 2005 gain plus or somthing and 2nd best is vanity. Well my bf said it was a bad idea to get them cause...From wat he says if they did really work every one would know about it and use it and it would be on t.V. And no 1 would go get them surgicly done. I think that is true but.... I wanna know from the people that actually took it.

So please let me know pm me if u got 2!

<3 judy

I am taking desogen and I already have extremely large breasts and now they have grown more largely than I can handle. I was already self-conscious about the size before, and now larger,i don't think I can take it!!! :x

Ages?
Sorry, this is kind of a similar question as before. But how old were you (the ones that experienced breast growth?) if you could post replies or send a message that would be greatly appreciated!

Also, is it with that specific birth control form/brand? Or do other contraceptives enlarge breasts?

I know that now pills have a lot les hormones than the used to and that it was way more frequent to have the hugeboobs side effect before so I guess its linked. Also im on the patch now but ive just started... Believe me any increase in size would be greatly appreciated by both me n my bf lol, how many of you have experiences breast growth on the patch?

I am 18 and have been on the patch for 3 months now. I began noticing my breast grow within the first two weeks and they are still growing now. I have increased from a small a to a b. Although they have been very tender and sore the entire 3 months, but everyone has noticed my new breasts and close friends have even commented that they have grown rapidly becuase I have always been pretty flat chested and now I actually have clevage in shirts. The patch also cleared up my acne and thined down my underarm and bikini hair growth. I recommend trying the patch to anyone who is unsatisfied with their small breast size.
