Birth Control Pills and Hormones

We received a question recently regarding the use of birth control pills – see our answer below.

Q. What kind of message do hormones send out to the opposite sex while taking birth control pills?

A.  Studies have been done that point out that women in public situations receive far higher tips during the time that they are ovulating. The tips diminish at the times of their menses or if they are pregnant. There is a direct attractiveness factor as to whether or not the hormones are signalling that the woman is available or not. During use of the birth control pill, besides all the detrimental effects on ones health, the hormones send out the signal that you are pregnant. This actually diminishes the attractiveness factor for the opposite sex.
