arianah Posted August 15, 2008 Share Posted August 15, 2008 I just read this LiveScience study. link removed link removed In short, it says that women normally when not on the pill seek out partners by being drawn to men with different MHC (major histocompatibility complex) smells. However, when they're on the pill, hormonally it's as if they are pregnant (so genetically, the kind of mate doesn't matter), so they tend to seek out men with matching MHC smells. Couples with different MHC smells tend to be happier with each other and more faithful to each other. In your experiences, has this been the case?

I'm just one person though, so I wanted to see if there was any anecdotal evidence to back this up. Here's the full article: Link to comment
