Another Birth Control Question

I recently switched my birth control and I'm having some issues. I had been using Depo Provera for the last 7 or 8 years. It worked great for me with no apparent side effects (and no periods!) but with so many concerns about long term use I decided to try a traditional pill. My doctor recommended Marvelon.

As soon as I started taking it I gained about 5lbs which I know isn't uncommon. My main problem is that I've been having sever breast pain/tenderness and it feels like most of the weight I gained went straight to my boobs (I've gone up a cup size or more). Has anyone else had that happen?? My doctor said the pain will improve in a few cycles but I don't think he realizes how painful it is. Any ideas?

how long have you been taking this pill?

there is a possibility you may need to switch brands; no one should live in pain for even one cycle, imo. bloating is one thing, pain is another.

I used to take ortho tri cyclen and loved it. I used it for over 10 years. I never gained weight or had any breast tenderness. The only thing it did was made me very moody and I had a very low sex drive. I had no idea that the pill was causing those 2 side effects until I did some research. I imagine this could happen with a lot of different bc pills. I just recently stopped taking it and I am a much nicer person and I am horny as hell (and I have no one to release it on) No really, it is good but I guess you have to go over the pros and cons. it may not effect everyone the same way.

It's only been 3 weeks. I just finished the last pill in the pack before the week of sugar pills. I guess I should go talk to my Doctor again if it doesn't get better once I start the next cycle.

^^The first BC I ever went on was ortho tri cyclen back in college, it definitely did the same thing for me, I went up a full cup size and I have tenderness with a lot of brands I have tried, but I agree with Shi, pain that severe should be evaluated. There are so many options out there now for you doctor to try.

Maybe you should try nuvaring instead I like it much more than the pill (I've tried ortho tri and yaz). But of course, consult with your doctor first.

I think you should just keep trying different brands since everyone is different, you just need to find the right one for yourself. I take seasonale and I know a lot of people who have had all the negative side effects of it but I absolutely love it.
