However when a woman takes the birth control pill, its hormone changes the way that she reacts to the smell of the prospective father.
That is, on the pill she prefers bad boy masculine men, off the pill she prefers baby face effeminate men. It turns out that the hormone disruption, causes her to make mistakes when, coming off the pill to breed.
I came across an interesting find,

Why is that so horrible? Men often "choose wrong" based on factors like boob size, chance of getting caught by wives, etc. Where's the outrage there?

What does being masculine or effeminate have to do with "complimenting" the woman's immune system?
I'm into my guy while on and off of the pill.

I can hear Sr David Attenborough's voice on the doc now...
"See the human female grazing on the Serengeti... her choices to family plan via hormones has caused her to display to the 'bad boy' specimen usually relegated to the herd's fringes... smelling his chance in the pharmaceutical hormones oozing from the young female's pores, we observe his furtive maneuverings around the prominent, alert alpha male.
There... he has cut the female from the herd and has cloistered her in a sheltered glen... in a quick minute the next crop of humans is assured; along with a more genetically robust clan. Such is the beauty of the natural order."
I'd like to believe our intelligence can combat baser instinct, but am pessimistic... I find myself checking for sufficient fat deposits in my mates constantly.

I came across an interesting find, in so much as when a human female decides to have children, picking the partner is done to a great extent on gut instinct. It turns out the gut instinct is primarily the odour of the father telling the prospective mother that his immune system will compliment hers and therefore produce healthy offspring. This relies on her hormones, being balanced to detect the correct immune system. However when a woman takes the birth control pill, its hormone changes the way that she reacts to the smell of the prospective father. That is, on the pill she prefers bad boy masculine men, off the pill she prefers baby face effeminate men. It turns out that the hormone disruption, causes her to make mistakes when, coming off the pill to breed. So she can choose the partner, with the wrong immune system, which could cause birth defects and neurological issues in the infant. When you mess with nature, and big pharma profits, their seems to always be a downside.
