Hi, im looking to go back on the contraceptive pill mainly for breast growth and weight gain. I was wondering if dianette and yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) do this?

Oral birth control: At 18, your weight and breast size have not reached normal proportions of adulthood. Oral contraceptives in low doses (such as Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and others) will not effectively change your breast size or weight. You can try, but don't be disappointed if you do not see results to your liking. If you are sexually active, the "benefits" are limited to very secure birth control. ...Read more

Can breast feeding women take yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)?

Probably: Hormonal birth control might affect milk supply, so it's best to use a non-hormone method, like a copper iud. Birth control that doesn't have estrogen, like Nexplanon implants or the mini pill, is probably better than a regular pill like yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). If you start on birth control with hormones, keep track of how much milk you are making, and consider another method if it decreases. ...Read more

Is it normal to gain weight on norethisterone 5mg \u0026#40;a pill 3 times a day\u0026#41;, using it for 2 weeks now + yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for 20 days? Will I lose them when stop the pill? Also having breast pain?

Possibly: There's no absolute pattern; many women claim to gain weight when taking progestins. Is it the pills for sure? Hard to say. It's reasonable you might gain water weight, this will drop once you stop the medicine. Progestins do not make you gain mass (fat), so this would not be caused by meds and would likely not go away on stopping. ...Read more

Had hyster at 32, ovaries removed. On estradiol 1 mg daily for HRT. Told its needed and safe. No breast cancer risk for estrogen only!? Is this true?

No breast Ca risk: Question is raised as to rationale of total hysterectomy at 32. Hormone therapy is indicated but has no relationship to the induction of breast Cancer. There latter is induced in most patients by viral transformation thru the Wnt gene and not ingestion of hormones. Fire is not caused by spilling gasoline on paper. The paper must be on fire and Ca must be present in breast for stimulation. ...Read more

I'm on yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for about 6weeks now, and I see a huge difference in breast and nipple enlargement. My breasts are also very tender. Is this normal?

Breast changes: As birth control pills work by tricking your body into believing that it is already pregnant and therefore preventing its release of another egg, your body experiences similar changes that you would see in pregnancy such as the enlargement of your breasts. This may be a welcome or unwelcome change that you can discuss with your doctor to adjust dose or discuss different options. Still normal. ...Read more

See your doctor: See your ob-gyn or doctor for eval. Some hair around the nipple can be normal and if you have regular periods that means your hormone levels must be in the normal range and working okay.

I 've been on estrace (estradiol) since sept. For vaginal athrophy and found a breast lump in dec, benign per mri/biopsy. Should I stop estrace (estradiol)?

Not necessarily.: If I may rephrase your question, does your breast biopsy result warrant stopping estrace (estradiol)?
