Changes in Hormonal Contraceptive may Alter a Woman’s Sexual Satisfaction

According to a study published in Psychological Science, women who meet their partners while taking the pill and continue to take the pill have a greater sexual satisfaction than women who began or stopped the pill during their relationship. Simply, your hormones are more likely to remain balanced if you consistently take your hormonal birth control. Which means your feelings or attraction toward your significant other are less likely to change due to hormone changes.

Historically, research has proven that hormonal birth control alters a woman's preferences in a significant other. That research also showed that women may find their partners less attractive once they stop taking the pill. The new study supports these earlier findings. However, the new findings point to the impact a change in hormonal birth control use during a relationship can have on a woman's sexual satisfaction.
