Birth control body changes


Q: I am currently taking Junel Fe birth control and have been for about two years.. I am five four and now one hundred and fifteen pounds. when i began the pill it increased my breasts a pretty good amount and I was much happier with them..they stayed this way for a long time, however six months ago I lost fifteen pounds after having being sick for a long time. I lost A LOT of weight in my breasts.. Now i have gained back the weight and even a few more pounds but I have not gained any back in my breasts. I guess what I am wondering is if I stop taking the pill for a bit and then restart up do you think the hormone change would cause my breasts to increase as they did the first time??

any thoughts would be SO helpful!
