is it true that when you're on the pill, your breats get bigger? about 90% of my friends who have been on the pill have gone up at least half a cup size, but i haven't seen change in myself after taking it for a month.

One thing to bear in mind is that many women start using hormonal contraceptives when they are still developing, so it can always be tough to figure who is having breast growth due to the pill, and who is having it because their breasts are just growing.

It is one typical side effect, but the growth usually tends not to be dramatic, and many women also do NOT experience that side effect.
