Symptoms of pregnancy on birth control? If I became pregnant while taking birth control do the pregnancy symptoms become less apparent than if I wasn't due to the controlled hormones it causes? Such as breast tenderness ect.

This . This is very difficult to say, as each person is completely different when it comes to pregnancy symptoms on and off the pill. For example, you mentioned breast tenderness, there are women who experience it and women who do not regardless if they got pregnant on the pill or not. The most important thing to note here is that birth control needs to be stopped right away if you are pregnant. Therefore please take a pregnancy test or visit your doctor for one. Take care.

I am 8 weeks prego. Is it normal that my symptoms have alleviated (morning sickness&breast tenderness) and began noticing some back pain yesterday?

Maybe. Pregnancy symptoms can wax and wane, but it is always a concern when there are diminished symptoms very early on. I would let you OB know that there's been a change and see if you can get another ultrasound to make sure everything is still ok. Good luck! Read more...

Is it normal to have severe breast tenderness after being on the birth control pill?

Can be common. Breasts swelling +/- tenderness is very common around menstruation; swelling and bloating is usually lowest right after your period is done. Women on long term birth control are often surprised by symptoms when they get off the pill. Otoh i don't think 'severe' is ever totally nromal, so see your doctor in person for confirmation.
