Hi there!
I stopped taking birth control about two weeks ago now. I had been on that particular pill for ~1.5 years. My boyfriend and I have not had sexual intercourse for 2 months or so.

Just a quick question. My breasts have been feeling pretty sore...particularly my nipples and they randomly become erect. Just wondering if this is normal! Thanks for any info you can give me.

Hi Ysabel [Smile]

Breast tenderness can be caused by a number of things including hormonal fluctuations. The hormonal change caused by coming off the pill could be a cause, but it could also just be caused by the natural hormones of your menstrual cycle. Breasts also get quite tender when they're growing.

If the tenderness persists or is causing you a lot of discomfort you should definitely talk to your doctor about finding a fix for it.

Cheers,

Marion
