I've been on the Pill (Gianvi 3mg/0.02mg) for about 5 months. When I first started taking it I noticed that my breasts got somewhat bigger and more tender, but I figured that was normal and it went away within a few weeks. I wasn't great about taking the pill on time the past 2 months and I missed several days, but I've gotten back in the habit of taking it properly with the current pack (just finished week 2). But this past week my breasts have gotten larger and somewhat tender once again. Is this just because I've gotten back in the habit of taking the pill every day on time? The only reason I'm concerned is because of this incident which happened less than 2 weeks ago. In my head know that the chances being pregnant from this are slim to none (correct me if I'm wrong), but I'm scared nonetheless. Could the breast size increase and such be related to the Pill, or could it be something else? (For the record, I started taking the pill to help with acne and I'm not sexually active with a partner).

Having noticeable breast changes from a pregnancy which would only be around a week along would be beyond incredibly unusual. less unusual than becoming pregnant the way you are worried about, mind. Seriously, that situation would not have posed ANY pregnancy risk.

So, this is most likely about either your pill, or water retention in general, which happens very commonly for people with breasts.
