How Birth Control Pills Affect Women’s Sexuality

How To Make Erotic Peace With The Pill

After the first oral contraceptive was approved in 1960, The Pill quickly became the world’s most popular birth control method. More than 100 million women worldwide have used it, and among American women age 18 to 44, birth control pills have been used by a whopping 82 percent.

Oral contraceptives have been the subject of more than 44,000 research publications, but fewer than 100—less than one-half of 1 percent—have dealt with its effects on women’s sexuality. The findings of those several dozen reports have been all over the map. Some show increased erotic interest, better sexual functioning, and greater sexual satisfaction. Others show the opposite—libido loss and sexual impairment. And some show no sexual effects at all. This article analyzes the research and suggests ways for women to make erotic peace with The Pill.
