Implanon and Breast Growth

Hello all!  I've had my Implanon for 11 months now, and noticed no breast growth when I started it.  For the past 6-8 weeks, my breasts and nipples have been sore-- not non-stop, but whenever I touch them or bounce around without a bra.  It's similar to how they felt when I used to have PMS on the pill-- just sore and tender, with no acute/shooting pains.  My breasts have also grown slightly.  Can this be related to the Implanon, even though I've had it for awhile and there's no estrogen?  Or is it more likely that this is a random growth spurt, and the soreness is just related to the growth?

I'm not particularly worried about my breasts getting bigger.  I just want to make sure it isn't a sign of something wrong/changing with my birth control.

Other (maybe) relevant things:
- I'm not pregnant (see below)
- I had a heavy heavy period 2 weeks ago that I'm still spotting from.  I think this is because a few days prior I started antibiotics, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.
- My acne has also cleared up in the 4 weeks.  This confuses me because both breast growth and skin changes are associated with estrogen, which isn't in the Implanon... so, I'm confused.  This also may not be relevant.

Thanks for any ideas or input!!
