Skip to comments."When You Change Women’s Sex Hormones, You Change Women" — It Turns Out There's Evidence That Hormonal Birth Control Actually Affects Who You're Attracted To, And Now I'm Questioning Everything

Dr. Hill told BuzzFeed that birth control pills can affect so much more than our ability to become pregnant: "The birth control pill changes women’s sex hormones, which means that its effects go far beyond contraception. There are hormone receptors on virtually all cells in the body – including all major structures in the brain. Because of this, hormonal birth control can have an impact on nearly every aspect of who a woman is."
To date, research finds that hormonal birth control can influence all kinds of things, such as "a woman’s mate preferences" and even "her relationship satisfaction." She continued, telling BuzzFeed, "Researchers have only very recently begun to explore the psychological and behavioral effects of the pill, which means that the things we know are far outnumbered by the things we don’t."
"However, what is clear is that when you change women’s sex hormones, you change women," Dr. Hill said.
Dr. Hill cited even more research to support this theory: "In one study, researchers compared ratings of relationship quality given by women who had chosen their partners when they were on the pill to those given by women who had chosen their partners when they were not on the pill. They found that women who had chosen their partners while on the pill reported less sexual attraction to their partners, less sexual arousal in response to their partners, and less sexual adventurousness than women who had chosen their partners when they were not on the pill. Later studies have found that married women who chose their partners when on the pill, but then went off of it, report declining sexual satisfaction in response to their change in hormonal status."

I’m sure many women experience this. For example, a woman may be off the pill when she meets someone, and then goes on the pill for him.
And hormones will change if she goes off the pill, if they are trying to get pregnant.
With a 70% divorce rate, it is clearly improving their selection skillset
Women are ruled by their hormones. Check.
“They found that women who had chosen their partners while on the pill reported less sexual attraction to their partners, less sexual arousal in response to their partners, and less sexual adventurousness than women who had chosen their partners when they were not on the pill.”
So it isn’t the wedding cake ... or was this not a double blind study?
A female friend couldn’t take the pill. It made her nauseous, and sick. She tried different doses, brands, etc... all had the same effect.
That kind of guaranteed that eventually she and hubby (both yuppy, corporate climber-types when younger) would get pregnant
4 fantastic kids later, she admitted that sickness was a great blessing from God in disguise.
I remember learning about this almost 20 years ago when. I took Sexual Psychology at Wayne State University. Also discussing divorce rates after some went off the pill. Also, I learned a little bit about hormonal birth control being flushed out, going through wastewater treatment, and ultimately effecting marine wildlife close to two decades before I hear the name Alex Jones (or those who mocked him about “gay frogs”).
That explains so many stories I’ve heard from men.
When my girlfriend is on the pill, she is not attracted to me.
She is attracted to other men. Figure that one out.
Yes. The birth control pill has been modifying women’s hormones for over 70 years.
When women ovulate they are attracted to high testosterone males.
If you prevent them from ovulating naturally, they favor more soy-boy limp wristed fag types. Rinse repeat for 70 years and the beta male has infiltrated everywhere and we a country of total wimps.
