Meeting people while you’re on the pill skews the pheromone balance of attraction. The pill releases hormones that inhibit pregnancy by making the woman’s body feel she is already pregnant. Hormonally she is then finding herself wanting to be by her family and people with similar genetic signatures to her own. Normally our pheromones are attracted to those with dissimilar immune systems and genetic signatures. Due to the similarities of immune system and genetic signatures there is a higher chance of the children resulting from such unions having health issues. This means that the children that will result from such unions will be a result of our manipulating the gene pool of our species. There is a higher chance of infertility in these couples once they do decide to have children.
Not to mention the increase in divorce among those couples that meet under the influence of the pill and go off it to have kids and finding out they are incompatible once the influence is removed.
I’m all for covering birth control, but just hope that the pill isn’t started until after there’s a relationship based on compatibility on more levels. If someone is too young or ignorant to understand the implications of their decision to find a mate under the influence of the pill they should by all means stay on the pill until they are.
