can taking birth control affect breast size?

In some women: Breasts are hormonally-responsive organs, so changes in hormone levels can cause changes in breast size, tenderness, and even stimulate some tumors. If you want larger breasts, however, you need a good plastic surgeon, not oral contraceptives!
