Do birth control pills increase the risk of breast cancer and cause nasty PMS as side effects ?

hi.,iM 20.. i heard that women taking extra estrogen on top of what their own body already produces will definitely increase their breast cancer risk, may cause nasty PMS, and other unwanted side-effects as well.

Birth control pills are advised when you need contraception or when you have irregular periods.They are hormonal pills so used to regulate the cycle so if you use it when you require there is as such no problem.Like all medicines they too have side effects like nausea;vomiting;giddiness ;weight gain but it is temporary and get reversed after stopping the pills.So you see unwanted use should be avoided but you can use it when it is necessary.
