I just started Yasmin yesterday. I've heard of common effects while on the pill, although I'm not sure if all are true. The ones that stood out to me were weight gain and breast growth. I'm not just getting on it for those, but those sound like an added bonus. Are both of those relatively true? and if they are.. how long do you think it'd be till i notice a difference? i'm at an a cup, and if i could possibly get to just a b cup, while also having the pill for it's original purpose that'd be amazing.. i'm just trying to figure out how long on average it takes.. if those both are true... thanks!
Hi there! I'm also on Yasmin and really like it. I haven't had any trouble with it and it has never caused any weight gain for me (of course unless I'm not working out as much or eating bad and it's my own fault). My chest was still growing when I started taking it, so it was hard to tell if it caused anything for me. However, I think most of my friends who have gone on the pill (different brands of pills too) experienced a little boost in their chest. Usually it was a cup size. You definitely have a chance of going up to a B, so it may happen for you.
so you'd say about a month to maybe see effect? my boobs have been very tender since the first day i took the pill. is this due to the pills? it's weird.. because they've been tender the past two days since i've taken it. and it really hurts. :/
I take Yaz (same as Yasmin but a lower estrogen). I'm a A-cup and I probably saw a cup size increase within the first month. However, it doesn't stay and I've sadly lost some (but not all) again. ::sigh:: Cleavage was fun while it lasted...
**Oh, and with bigger breasts comes extreme tenderness. But that too goes away somewhat, but I've found it never totally fades away.

Reason: Forgot to mention
My breasts don't need to get any bigger than they are, but right now (for the past 2 days) they feel like they've grown (bloated) 2-3 cups sizes and are "sore". They just feel huge! Bigger than when I would be PMSing when I wasn't on the pill. I just started the pill approx. 2 weeks ago. Anyone else going through the same situation?
I have been on yasmin since may 2007. I may come off of it though because i just now started showing signs of break through bleeding, However, about the breast question. I was realitivley (SP) huge before i started. I was a small 34 D cup. Well since the time being on the pill, I have become a 36D on the very edge and sometimes having to wear a 36DD. So i did notice a little bit of breast enlargement. But again mine only get sore the week before i get my period and then they are fine. So who knows.
Best of luck to you all. Hope this helped.
Today I will take my 10th pill and my breasts the last 2-3 days are very sore.
Purplegrapes when did you see growth ?what cup size do you wear?Were your breasts sore before growth?
On my 2nd to 3rd week my breasts started getting sore as it does before I get my period. I'm between a size C and D cup, but here and there it's been feeling like the next cup up and sore. It's not like it's sore or bigger all the time, just sometimes.
I just started yaz this month and for the first week at least my breats weren't an achey sore, btu I had more upper sharp growing pains. But they feel better now. Usually your body can adjust to the pill if not after the second month ask your doctor about trying a different one.
I am on the 5th pill of my second packet and although my breasts had stopped being tender and painful when I was off the pills and had my period, they have started to hurt again....My god they are so tender to touch ! and they are very soft like jelly...Is this normal?
hi yall Ive just been accepted for Healthy women, which is awesome, it allows you to have bc and exams for very cheap. So i can finally get on birth control again. Its been a while, and im wondering if anyones breast seem to shrink or stay the same after stopping bc. Im under the impression that the growth is simply temporary
