Sore breasts mid cycle, but on mono birth control pill. I am in the middle of second pack of pills. Does this mean im ovulating? Is it normal?

In brief: Not ovulating

The pill works by preventing ovulation so unless you are taking it incorrectly you should be ok.
Breast tenderness may be a side effect of the pill but should then improve as you continue the pill. It is not a sign of ovulation.
