Individual response: Birth control pills can increase appetite. Women's bodies are different and some women will have fewer side effects on one type of BCP compared with others. Finding the BCP with the least side effects for a particular woman may require some trial and effort. It is important to establish good communication with the doctor prescribing BCPs, so that you are comfortable discussing any side effects.
