Using birth control can potentially increase the size of your breasts. The hormones in certain types of contraceptives might cause your breast tissue to grow. Those hormones can also cause fluid retention that results in your breasts feeling larger during certain points in your menstrual cycle. If you stop taking the pill, the effects you experienced when you started birth control will likely go away. Also remember that other factors might affect your breast size besides hormonal changes tied to your birth control. Most types of hormonal birth control contain two hormones: estrogen and progestin though some options, like the mini pill, contain only progestin.
