Hormonal contraceptive pills have been found to dampen a woman's sexual life. Though they provide family planning benefits these pills interfere with arousal, lubrication, sexual desire and orgasm.

Researchers fear that women might stop using contraception if they experience these negative side-effects. Therefore lead researcher Nicole Smith, project coordinator at Indiana University's Center for Sexual Health Promotion advised women to switch to another method of contraception if they experience similar problems.

The study is based on online data collected by the Kinsey Institute. 1,101 sexually active women were part of the study. The women were almost evenly divided in birth control methods that include birth control pills, patch, ring or shots, and women using other methods of contraception like condoms, diaphragm, cervical cap or withdrawal.

This study will be presented at the American Public Health Association's annual meeting in Washington, DC.
