I'm pretty sure that this is just a side effect of the pill - I'm into my second month of taking them and I know that it can take my body up to three months to really get used to the hormones. That said, very recently I've noticed my breasts getting sore when I apply pressure - similar to when I PMS sometimes, though maybe even more sore. Should this be something I keep tabs on or seeing healthcare about? Any concerns? Pretty sure that it's only intense mood swings and pains indicating clotting that are dangerous to my health...

Sore breasts can definitely be a side effect of the pill. Since you're only in your second month of taking it, I'd wait until you've been on it for the three months and then, if the soreness hasn't gone away and is still bothering you, talk to your healthcare provider.

Thank you. [Smile] Also, breast soreness is just one of those nasty-but-harmless little side effect sorts, right? Not usually anything that would be serious?
