A 49-year-old member asked:
Is it actually true that breast growth/tenderness due to the pill will go away?

Depends: Birth control pills have hormones and these hormones effect breast tissue causing pain and tenderness. If you are not happy with the symptoms, contact your gyn for evaluation and change to a different pill. A lower dose will have less symptoms.
