A 24-year-old female asked:

I know sore sensitive nipples are a side effect of birth control but is it normal for it not to start until 3rd week of use?

Birth control: Side effect is hardly normal but it is not unusual for sore breast to start till 3rd week of use. Talk to your doctor about reducing the dosage of your pill, especially the progestin component.
