Breast pain on the pill?

Hi everyone, I’m new here. I’ve been on the contraceptive pill for over a year and take it on time every day and never missed a pill. I’m recently been experiencing really sore breasts for the last couple of weeks (not due for my pill break and bleed for a few more days.) I’m worrying about the pain, is this normal if I’ve been on the pill for so long? Or could it be something else? Any help greatly appreciated x

Sometimes the pill can cause boobs to grow bigger - does your bra still fit you OK?

Thanks for replying, I thought this but my bra still fits fine!

It could be worth measuring, just to be sure. I thought my bra fit fine, but turned out I was wearing 2 cup sizes too small (for years).

This was a useful calculator:

It could be something else, like exercising with an inappropriate bra can cause boob pain too. Also a good idea to just rule out pregnancy (I know someone who conceived both her kids while on the pill).

Thanks, I’ll have a measure and check. I’ve done two tests and both negative. I’m just worried as I’ve been on the pill for over a year with no issues at all, it seemed odd that it would only now cause me pain!

It's worth seeing your doctor if it goes on. I went through a spell of breast pain, and eventually traced it down to my sports bra not being supportive enough, but that's where my experience and knowledge ends unfortunately...

Hi. I have had issues experiencing breast pain with several pills. It might be worth asking gp for different pill and also for a breast exam to check everything is ok.

Hi, this post has related to a situation in my home. My daughter has had to start the pill to regularize her flow and it is causing alot of breast pain. Would like to hear from you again if you got it checked out a d what were the results. We also changed her bra size and style but still sore. Thanks so much for sharing

Hi, I’m on my week pill break and the pain has eased. I’m on Rigevidon at the moment but I’ve got a doctors appointment to swap to an alternative pill as it’s a common side effect. Hope this helps! :)

Thank you very much. She has see her doc in January. I will raise the issue then
