Can anything be really bad if it keeps the PMDD Monster away and makes one more civil?
It's certainly not an altering in personality. That takes street drugs to do that.
The different men thing is hormonally controlled. Birth control pills make the body think it's pregnant and therefor creates a preference for the scent of more nurturing men, the idea being that somebody has to stick around to take care of the baby (even though there isn't one). At least that's how the studies have concluded.
I'm currently off of them (public health reasoned I shouldn't need them since I've had a tubal), but my PMDD has been something awful and the cramps are hell. I'm very interested to know if I'd still be in thrall of Master in person (since he's the nurturing, gentle type) or even if he'd still be interested in me (the pill also changes a woman's scent). Guess I'll find out in nine months if I'm still off them.
