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!

Break-ups are the worst. There's really not much more for me to say about them that hasn't already been explored in a Nicholas Sparks novel or a Cosmo essay. But I have found a way to make break-ups, and even that awkward transitionary period where you feel like your entire life is a failure, a…
