Role of Love Hormone: Oxytocin
When we are in love we seem to ourselves quite different from what we were before.
— Blaise Pascal

Falling in LOVE is unique and science behind love is interesting to know.

Is oxytocin only found in female body?

Do you think male also have oxytocin...!

But they did not have breast and uterus.

So what the oxytocin is doing in the male body?

If your answer is for attraction.

If I inject oxytocin in your body will you develop a lot of attraction?

You are partially correct, not correct at all.

Let me tell you, Oxytocin is bonding hormone,It is a cuddle hormone, yeah You may say loving hormone.

Actually, when one human being touches the other human being in both of them the body there is release of the Oxytocin.

And if you touch someone again and again and again,Hugged and kissed.
Even specially when the orgasm is there,there is the big surge of Oxytocin.

An Oxytocin acts on the Central Nervous System (CNS) on the neuron and develop an emotional bonding between the human beings.

That's why it is called bonding hormones.

And here I would love to mention one thing usually female release a lot oxytocin as compared to the men.

That's why usually female get more strongly bonded with the men and men do let bonded but weakly and they can be drift away easily.

And women can never understand why men don't remain loyal.They designed to only,but differently I must say.


So, Oxytocin hormone is the bonding hormone too. Female releases a lot of Oxytocin that's why they get emotionally bonded very strongly.

Remember, girls don't get attached quickly they can attract anyone quickly but bonding takes time.

And here I again mention one thing, the something which is called love in the beginning stage.

You know the early days of love and you get involved and suddenly world changes, is that depends on Oxytocin?

No, that doesn't depends on Oxytocin.
That's depends on serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine.

These neurotransmitters are when too much in your brain and specially when you think about your beloved person,look at their photo,look at the person then these hormones surge.

And you know! These neurotransmitters,they keep them in high alert state and suppress the area of brain which are concerned with analysis and activates the area which are concerned with emotions.

So that you have highly emotional for that person without any sensible analysis and you are in love.

In the beginning of the love usually your early phases is dominated by what?

-Dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine.

But as time passes by, the purpose of these three is to keep the male and female bonded for enough time.

Until female gets pregnant.

But meanwhile as time passes by, both of them start releasing male and female more and more oxytocin. And then the bonding come.

So that willingly bonding occur that baby which come due to some planned or unplanned activity, both of them may remain bonded for they have to take care of that baby.

So in this way in the early part of the love (the magical part) wher serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine is in very high concentration.That is the part of the love which is basically an excited stage, you don't think of anything and you just go ahead with your love even if he/she is going to hell.


But if you really get involved and stay together then enough Oxytocin is released so that if there is baby then what should happen then they should be bonded enough.

But men are in trouble.Actually what happen their attachment with women get that special magical neurotransmitters (dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine) and male and female get bonded.

Interestingly, some men are addicted to that early phase, the time they find another women he wants to experience that things so and so forth.

And women never understand where the old true love days have gone.

Where they have gone?

But still they may love each other why they love each other? Oxytocin is there.
You may find a man saying I love my wife,I don't want to hurt her.But I want to make a multiple romances/extra martial activities.

Some men who can not control themselves.They want to have those activities right the same time they don't want to hurt their family.

May be in the family they have Oxytocin going on bonding. And the other side dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine activity.

What really happen that the excitement phase of love. Some people like to repeat it again and again. Isn't it?

And very important thing,
Why nature designed that after some time those three secretory hormones (neurotransmitters) should go down?

You know why? Because in early life the serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine is there.You focus more on your relationship and so much focused on your beloved that many important things in your life you are not doing or they are disrupted.

My dear friend if you continue like that your life will be destroyed.

So the nature just keep you in magical moments which is usually 6 months to 2 years depending upon the couple and then they become brave and oxytocin start releasing in them so that men can go out and start working and focusing on another things in the world and women can focus on the baby.

Most of the couples, this happens only once or twice in the life and 10% couple are lucky that repeatedly fall in love with each other.

Now you are on position to answer why women says to their husband "those were the very good days when you used to love me,you use to bring the flowers for me."

In this way Passionate LOVE which depend of dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine with the time convert into Affectionate LOVE.

Passion is finished.

So guys I hope you got the logic and concept behind love.
