Breast tenderness is a common side effect when starting the birth control pill, patch, or ring. It usually goes away within three months.

If you have made any mistake with your birth control method, or have missed a period, it makes sense to take a pregnancy test to make sure that's not the cause of the breast tenderness.

An overdose of birth control pills could cause nausea and breast tenderness. It will not kill you, cause an abortion, or make you infertile.

Some birth control pills can cause breast growth, or try gaining some weight.

Estrogen doesn't cause breast cancer but certainly estrogen can be linked to breast cancer. This is why hormonal birth control such as the combination pill is strongly linked to breast cancer.

Some women will notice increased breast size on hormonal birth control like the patch, pill, or ring. Most women will not have this side effect.

Not as far as I am aware, you should tell your doctor about this.
