Conversely, if you're bored of your foxy husband, going off the Pill might make you more excited about him. Russell says the change may be attributed fluctuating estrogen levels, but says there could be many hormonal reasons for this effect.

The variety of behaviors involved, situations in which they can occur, and ways that they can end, creates a challenge for researchers to understand and predict people's emotional reactions.Some women with partners who were not conventionally attractive reported being less attracted to him after stopping oral contraceptives, whereas a decrease was not seen in women whose partners were conventionally handsome."Women who choose a partner when they’re on hormonal contraceptives and then stop taking them will prioritize their husband's attractiveness more than they would if they were still on it," says Michelle Russell, the Florida State graduate student who is the lead author on the study.
