Ive been reading lots of reviews and they have been very helpful, so thanks to everyone for chronicling their experiences. I am set to start the pill tomorrow for the first time. First time using this kind of contraception (previously was always condoms). I am 22 yrs old, 144 lbs, 5'4. 34D and am happy with my size but have two major concerns about taking pills.1) I dont want to gain any weight and although large breast are nice, LARGER breasts seem a bit much. How much larger did you guys breasts grow? Also i have astigmatism and where contacts (glasses dont help much) and one of the side effects could possibly be difficulty wearing lenses. 2) Has anyone experienced that issue? Let me know and thanks in advance! :)

While I didn't have lenses yet when I was on the pill, I did have problems with corneal abrasions while I was on it. My eye dr said that for some reason its easier to get them when on the pill. I've known lots of people with lenses on the pill, so apparently it works for some. I'd say try them and see what happens. As far as weight gain, not everyone gains weight when on them. You have to see what happens. If you have reasons you don't feel you can take them, you can always stop them.
