On pill, breasts extremely sore, pregnant or is it just the pill?
Hi, I''m on mirelle and have been for many years. I have two children aged 13 &  8. I''ve been having problems with my pill this year for no rhyme or reason. During the year I''ve missed two periods for no reason and now this months my breasts feel like the are going to explode. I''m nearly 2 weeks into my new pack of pills. I got a very light period last month but that can be normal on this pill. Could I be pregnant or is this pill just not working for me anymore? Please help. Is it even worth doing a preg test?

Pregnancy sounds unlikely. Light periods are normal on the Pill and so is breast tenderness. These side effects are relatively small so I would suggets that you persist with this Pill.
