Why are my breasts shrinking for no apparent reason?

I started birth control last year in May and since then my breasts have been shrinking. I went from a full, muscular size 36B down to a firm 32A. Why did this happen? I m not complaining but I just don t understand and I hope they won t shrink anymore. My boyfriend says they are still shrinking and at the rate I m going I won t need a bra for much longer. I am a 20 year old female and I haven t been to anyone about it because I was trying to do research myself on the internet but can t find anything. I have my yearly physical with my gynocologist in May and if I haven t gotten an answer by then I will ask her. I didn t know if the birth control I am on could contribute to this but I haven t found anything there either. Please help me!!

Breast enlargement.If the breasts are very small then Plastic surgery would be the best option.breast implants are very safe and give long term gratifying results.If the breast substance is there but is loose then the breast can be lifted up without adding an implant.If u are not surgically inclined then use a padded bra.No medicines or exercise will help

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Size of breast varies your bodily hormone levels. It increases during pregnancy and lactation. Low dose progesterone pills might reduce their size. Stop taking pills for around six months and see the effect yourself.
