The Pill shuld not cause increased facial hair. The Pill does not generally increase breast size though this occasionally occurs in some women.

Hi Sallentia

I believe Triphasil is quite a strong pill and won't be surprised at all if this is what is giving you facial hair. There are lots of hormones in the pill, so I think speak to your gynae to maybe change to a lighter pill that won't have such side-effects. And as far as I know the pill can make your breasts get bigger.

Take care.
