I've been on the pill 3 months , and the three months have been misery ! My biggest woe is my achy, sore, sensitive, breast. It hurts putting on a bra most of the time. They seem to have gone up at least a good half cup size , but fluctuate during the day, I'm normally a C , I tried bigger but I couldn't fill out the cups. After stopping BCP's - Will by breast go back to normal size? Will it take long?

It's pretty common to experience breast changes while using methods of birth control that contain estrogen, like the pill.

But if you're having a ton of pain a few months in, I'd suggest checking back in with your prescribing physician if you want to keep using the pill: it may be that a brand or formula switch could change things for you.

Regardless, if breast changes like an increase in size or pain are due to the pill (and not a matter of simply having an increase in size that would have happened without it), then yes, it's most likely that if and when you stop taking it, in time your breasts will go back to your normal, probably within a few months.
