A new study claims a woman's choice of birth control pills may affect what type of men she likes.

Researchers say women using hormonal contraceptives tend to fall for masculine men with high testosterone levels, but the chemistry fades once the interaction turns into a relationship.

They suggest women switch to non-hormonal contraceptives months before getting married to see if they still like being with their partner.

The study is published online in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences.
