Breast tenderness.

Tender breasts are often something women cope with. If it’s a day around your period or around your menstrual cycle, it’s not a problem to be too concerned with. If you have just gotten onto a new birth control pill and you are now experiencing new breast tenderness it’s not likely a serious condition, but it’s likely to be an effect of the estrogen content in your pill. There are actually several ways to make adjustments. It may be that it’s a temporary effect of a new pill, but if this is something more on going, and if you like your pills, but still are plagued by breast tenderness, consider the other things: changing your bra, decreasing caffeine, and trying vitamin E. If you are not as committed to staying on the current pill then another alternative may be the patch as it has lower overall hormone levels as the levels are so steady they can be lower. And for those wondering if a crack will explode hormones into their vagina, the ring itself is permeated with the hormone, so cracks do not release large burst of hormone. It is rare for one to ever crack, and I cannot remember a patient calling about this.
