Pope Paul VI of blessed memory is smiling from his grave.
Not only can the birth control pill be an abortificient, the birth control pill may put you off the "smell of your man" and ruin your relationship! This just in from the Times.
According to The Times Science Editor Mark Henderson, the Pill might be a bad idea since it alters a woman's hormones and could potentially destroy healthy relationships.
To millions of women it has been the great liberator over the past four decades, allowing them the freedom to control their fertility and their relationships. But the contraceptive Pill could also be responsible for skewing their hormones and attracting them to the “wrong” partner.
A study by British scientists suggests that taking the Pill can change a woman’s taste in men — to those who are genetically less compatible.
The research found that the Pill can alter the type of male scent that women find most attractive, which may in turn affect the kind of men they choose as partners. It suggests that the popular form of contraception — used by a quarter of British women aged between 16 and 50 — could have implications for fertility and relationship breakdowns.
