Tender breasts are common on the pill. It should get better but if it does not you may need to change the preparation.

it could be the pill and pms or it could be high prolactin levels. my friend had aching breasts and found out her prolcatin levels were very high (through a blood test). she's not on medication is has no breast pain at all.

have your doctor test it
