Anyone can have a weird cycle once in a while. You may have developed an ovarian cyst last month that produced more estrogen than usual. Hopefully this next cycle will be normal. I'm not sure how long you been on the pills. Usually breast tenderness is much less for women on pills and the longer you're on the pills the less likely you are to have any breast tenderness.
