Oral contraception linked to relationships

12th October 2011

Stirling University researcher Dr Craig Roberts has connected relationship satisfaction with oral contraception.

Along with seven colleagues, he examined women who use the pill when they meet their partner and found they were less sexually satisfied or attracted to their partners. However, the women were more satisfied with other aspects of the relationship and so less likely to separate, they found. Dr Roberts said: “Our results show some positive and negative consequences of using the pill when a woman meets her partner.”
