Musky and masculine or fresh and feminine. It is said that the human body produces chemical als, called pheromones and these scents affect how one person perceives another and how they react to them. This evolutionary trick even goes a step further when it comes to choosing a partner with which to have children. According to swiss scientists the female hormone estrogen influences the scent of a woman. Estrogen production increases during the fertile window in order to stimulate ovulation.
The fact that women smell more attractive to men on their fertile days, was proven by a study at the University of Berne. The 28 women and 57 men involved in the study had to follow a very strict protocol: They were not allowed to use hormonal contraception, wash themselves with perfumed shower gel or sleep in a bed with another person.
Blood samples were taken to establish where they were in their menstrual cycles. The result: women who were close to ovulation were perceived to smell more attractive to the men. There are purely evolutionary reasons for this: our animal instincts to procreate.
We have always heard that your partners smell is decisive because you are intuitively assessing their genetic compatibility and health — whether they would be a good reproductive partner. The of the Swiss study however, showed that the men did not judge the attractiveness of the women by their smell per se, but rather by their hormone status, reveled by their smell at that time.
Basically, ovulation beats genetics! So, why were the women not allowed to use hormonal contraception?
This is understandable, because most pills contain an artificial form of the hormone progesterone, which permanently prevents ovulation. At the same time the pill keeps the estrogen levels permanently low. Too much progesterone and too little estrogen: the male volunteers in the swiss trial did not find this combination to be particularly attractive either by the way! It sounds very far-fetched, and in fact, while studies have shown a slight link, the evidence is simply too sketchy to reach a definitive verdict.
It is a very subtle chemical al which hints at whether you are currently fertile or not. The influence your hormones have on your body is truly amazing! However, relying on your partners sense of smell to identify when you are most likely to get pregnant might not be such a great idea; it is after all entirely subconscious.
We would recommend you use femSense to identify your most fertile days. The sensor in the femSense patch uses another al from your body to tell you that you are ovulating — a rise in body temperature. LH, Luteinizing Hormone is a hormone which helps control the menstrual cycle. Among other functions, LH triggers ovulation - the release of an egg from the ovary, which is why LH tests are often used by women trying to get pregnant.
There are plenty of good reasons to stop taking the pill, but what happens then?
