it won't affect existing hairs because they have already grown - simple as that. The hair growth was driven by testosterone stimulation of the hair follicle. the oral contraception will lower the levels of testosterone and reduce future hair growth, but the existing hairs will not suddenly disappear, so for cosmetic reasons the patient would have to physically remove the hairs - e.g. waxing.
