Does Birth Control Affect Women's Taste in Men?


According to a new lab study, birth control pills may affect women's taste in men.

Researchers with the study say women using hormonal contraceptives tend to fall for muscle-strapped, masculine men with high testosterone levels, but apparently the attraction fades once the interaction turns into a relationship.

The psychologist behind the study suggests women switch to nonhormonal contraceptives months before getting married to see if they still like being with their partner before saying "I do."

You can find the study online in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences.
