A new study has found that changing a birth control regimen can damage a woman's sex life.

Could switching your birth control routine damage your sex life?

According to a new study published in the most recent issue of the medical journal Psychological Science, women who stop taking birth control pills after starting a relationship report being less sexually satisfied by their partners than they were while taking the medication.

The study was conducted by a team at the University of Stirling, where researchers asked 365 heterosexual couples about both the sexual and non-sexual satisfaction levels in their relationship. Women who were on the pill when they met their partner and continued to take the medication reported a much greater amount of sexual satisfaction than women who met their significant other while on birth control but then stopped taking it at some point during the course of their relationship.

Women who had never been on the pill also told researchers that they were fulfilled in all aspects of their relationship, both in the bedroom and outside of it. Those studying the couples found that you may actually damage your sex life by changing oral contraception habits during a relationship.

This supports other research, which has found that changes in hormone levels can alter how a woman sees her significant other, as well as what she looks for in someone to date. Some women in various studies have reported finding their boyfriends less attractive after stopping their birth control routine. Lead researcher Craig Roberts wrote in his report that its main purpose is to help women understand why their feelings in a relationship might change when changing their birth control.
