Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Birth control pills have estrogen and progestin. Their amounts vary from one brand to another. Also they are synthetic and may have different molecular structure. Your body may react differently as a result. The breast symptoms are commonly experienced with birth control pill. The fact that the symptoms go away suggests the benign or harmless nature. How old are you? Any family history of breast disease?
Ok Your risk of any serious breast disease is very low. The bumps are noticed are due to the hormone influence and nothing concerning.These symptoms usually should improve over time and will be less apparent. Best wishes
Infection is unlikely since you do not have any fever or any swelling or redness of the breasts. Hence antibiotic will not be helpful. Soreness and nipple discharge are due to the estrogen influence. That usually improves over time. Anti inflammatory medication like Ibuprofen 600 mg every 8 hours can be tried for discomfort, if needed.Best wishes
