It varies, of course. It won't always stop growth completely, but it can. Is there any chance you could ask about non-hormonal alternatives because you're concerned about what effect the hormonal birth control might be having? There are copper-based IUDs that work by killing the sperm that enter the uterus. Though copper-based has it's own potential problems as well and you should of course discuss anything like that with a medical professional.
It just seems to me that your lack of growth is highly suspicious, since you are the ONLY female in your family without!
Only 1.5 years though... So it's probably not, or at least wasn't originally, part of the problem. You did say you love to exercise and specified particular enjoyment of cardio... do the other women in your family have a similar love for exercise? It could be that their breasts are mostly just fattier than yours, in which case you might do well in just easing back on quite so much cardio and making some dietary changes to allow for the exercise change without you immediately ballooning in undesired directions, namely, by cutting carbs.
