I have been having extreme breast tenderness lately, not to be graphic, but i mean i barely poke them and my nipples are sore. and it hurts. I am almost done with the second week on the second pack of my birthcontrol. Have never missed a pill and we used back up protection the entire first month and still kind of do. I was just wondering if someone could just fill me in more on why they're hurting so bad? Or rather so sore and tender. I know i cant be pregnant becasue i've never missed a pill and we were safe..i'm nearly an entire week away from the inactive pills where i would be starting my period, but would the tenderness still be there because this would be around the time that i would start my period when i wasnt on birth control?
