Pop pill breast tenderness

@Dr_Paula
Hi can contreception cause breast tenderness? My friend has been on cerazette for 4 months and all of a sudden her left breast by her nipple hurts. She feels her breast feels bigger, heavier and harder than her other one. First of all she panicked and thought it was breast cancer but she cant feel any lumps or has any of the other symptoms other than the ones I describe. Could this be down the the hormones?

Hello @Nadine_Stacie

The progestagen only pill can cause breast tenderness, but it is usually in both breasts. As your friend is experiencing pain in only one breast she should see her doctor to check it out.

Many thanks
