In brief: Within a few days

Your breasts will respond to the estrogen-like component of your birth control pills within 24 hours to a few days.
You may experience tenderness, swelling, or even some clear nipple discharge -- all of this is normal.

In brief: May not happen

Not everyone gets breast swelling with birth control use.
This can be a side effect of birth control pills but not all side effects are experienced by individuals who take the medication.

In brief: Maybe never

Sometimes they don't swell as the dose of hormones may be too low to affect them- or they could in a couple of days.
