Do some birth controls really make your boobs bigger? babe investigates
Well, yes and no

There are lots of good things about birth control: It keeps you from getting pregnant, can obliterate period pain, and even gets rid of some girls' acne. But does birth control make your boobs bigger?
This is what my friends were asking the other day. We were talking about birth controls and one girl asked if there's any that routinely make tits grow. None of us knew the science of birth control-induced breast expansion, so I knew I had to figure it out. Here's what I found:
Birth control with progestin and estrogen can make your tits look bigger
Progestin and estrogen can make boobs appear fuller and larger for a few reasons. They can cause fluid retention, which temporary inflates the chest (but can also inflate other parts of your body, yikes.) But, they can also lead to breast tissue growth. This generally goes away when the birth control is stopped, but until then you've got the chance at some patented angel-lift action.
You really only find estrogen in some oral contraceptives
You might already be on a combination pill. Some popular ones are: Estrostep, Levora, Natazia, Mircette, Levlite, Lessina, Enpresse, Lo/ovral-28, Ortho Tri-Cyclen, Aviane, Aranelle, Ortho-Novum, Alesse, Levlen, Loestrin, Apri, Yaz, Yasmin, and Nordette.
Obviously, bigger tits shouldn't be the reason you're going on a new birth control
Birth control affects everyone a little bit differently, of course. Couple that with the potentially severe side effects that can come with a hormone-laden pill and you truly don't know what you're going to get which makes trying to harness any one "bonus" not a great idea.
Like, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but what I'm trying to say is the only way to be 100 percent sure you'll get permanently bigger boobs is plastic surgery.
Birth control has lots of benefits that are way more important than becoming a DD, like carefree sex or increased control over menstrual symptoms. Love your titties how they are. Dress 'em up. Take 'em out. Be you.
Oh, and please: Whether its new BC or plastic surgery, talk to your doctor before doing anything to your body. Thaaaanks!
We asked girls to tell us their very first hoe stories’ and the shit they told us was wiiiild

Now that it's 2018 and we're all grown up and glowed up, of course we have wild hoeing stories. I mean, shit, who knew President's Day weekend could be so crazy? But a hoe doesn't just wake up a hoe one day. We begin learning at a young age, and we all have a first…
Every passive-aggressive thing you can do to let your roommate know they’re absolute shit
I’ve only done about all of these

The first (and last) time I shared a room with a despicable being was during my freshman year of college. I first thought we'd be a really cool pair that would have an understanding of mutual respect. I came from a semi-strict "bitch don't play" kind of household while she happened love extremely loud sex…
These normal people think they look ‘just like’ celebrities, but we’re… skeptical
I see like, two of them
by Una Dabiero
Let's be honest: Getting told you look like a celebrity is kinda the best thing ever. Like, Oh shit! I kinda maybe look like someone who gets paid to look pretty! It's the perfect compliment. But it's also kinda the worst because when it's true, you can't just be like "Oh yeah, I totally do"…
