My friend has started taking birth control and her boobs have gotten a lot bigger; she has put on quite a bit os weight as well. Is this due to the weight gain or do the hormones make them seem fuller/bigger?

I am pretty sure they do get bigger but when you stop taking b/c will they go back to normal?

Yes
This is due to the pill which kind is she taking and how long it usually takes 3 months to get used to it. I have also gained weight on mine ortho lo. :(

It depends on the person and their reaction.. I was on ortho tricyclen for years and never gained a pound and also never had any breast enlargement.. Then I went on the depo shot and gained 5 pounds in the first month or so, however my breasts didn't get much bigger. Now I am on the patch and while I haven't gained a pound.. My breasts have enlarged almost a half a size! So it's hard to say what is really causing her breasts to look big.. It could be either one!

Thanks!

She says its because of the birth control. I've heard more stories like this too. I've also heard that someone went down a boob size? Is that even possible without weight loss?

It is very important to me that if I do start b/c, I don't gain weight, and i'd like my boobs to be a little bigger. How would I know which is the right one for me? Is everyone absolutely different or can your gyno guide you?

Okay, thank you very much. How do you know so much? You seem to post everywhere about everything, it's amazing.

Anyways, is otc an injection? I'm deathly afraid of hypodermic needles. In fact, I still have to get my blood taken out by a prick on my thumb...

It'd be really bad if I break out in acne too... I am looking to be a model and any weight gain or acne can kinda ruin my chances. Also, I have been taking so much medication for my face and its finally cleaned up so I don't think I shoud take the chances.

Boobs
I am so glad someone else can now star in an adult movie. I changed to tricyclen two cups sizes ago (about 2 1/2 years ago). 9 months ago I changed to lavora (sp??) and gained 10 lbs. I changes back to ortho tricyclen a 2 months ago and now my boobs have gotten so big they have almost become pornographic. Cool at first a nice c. Now d. No thanks, I rather not. Not to meantion they hurt so bad I try not to move and I switched between wanting to kill someone and crying at commercials all day monday.

Now I don't know if I should switch back or what.

It almost makes me what to get married and have lots of babies just so I never have to take any bc again.

Thanks for the comforting messages!!

I was just prescribed orthotricyclen lo for my acne. I don't want to gain any weight! And i'm fine with my breasts the size they are--i hate them anyway. Are the chances of me actually gaining in either of these areas particularly great? I'm 5'3.5", ~105 lbs 19-yo with a medium frame. You may snort and think that I could stand to gain a few pounds, but I just don't want to. I'm already kinda out of shape as it is.

Periods And Boobs
I started taking ortho tricylen lo and I broke out bad know I have a few scars on my face and even when i'm weeks from my period I brake out really bad. So I recently stopped taking them but everyone thinks that I shouldn't have stopped because due to the fact I didn't start my periond in about 10 mo before the pill but whats really freaky about this is after the period that I had with the pill 18 days later I had another period. Also I havent gained weight really anywhere but my boobs I was a c but know im a d pushing dd. And im not really big and im short. I dont know if its the pills or not will see and I will let you know if its the pills that make them bigger.

Are you taking or doing anything else that makes you think it may not be the pills? Or are you just giving it a doubt just in case?

But the pills did make you break out?

My doctor explained to me that birth control increases your appetite, which is why people complain of weight gain. If you can control your eating habits you won't gain weight. Well that is to say, if my doctor is right, I'll let you know once I start actually taking my prescription.

Birth Control, increases the appetite, which makes you feel as if you're hungry but you're not, so if yu are able to control your eating habits, yu shd be fine. to "the one"..ortho tricylen lo is great, i was just put on it about a week ago, and i like it so far..no side effects, but i told my gyno, i wanted Low doses, not high. but you should be gd, dnt come on here for a full description of what's what.Everyone's body reacts diff. what may work for me, may not work for you. Ask your gyno

i used to be on birth control but have been off it for about 6 months to a year now. I am thinking about getting back on it but am wondering which i should get. Years ago I was on ortho tri lo (if I remember correctly) and the last time i was on it i was on yaz but I can't remember the way they made me feel or weight gain/loss very much. I think I liked yaz but can't remember. My boobs also used to be a bit larger and I would like to get them back to the size they were. Do any of you know if yaz would increase bust size?
