Oxytocin is a neuropeptide produced in the hypothalamus and secreted by the pituitary gland. Oxytocin is released during sex, childbirth and lactation to aid reproductive functions.
This neuropeptide exerts multiple psychological effects, influencing social behavior and emotion. Oxytocin is prescribed for a variety of obstetric and gynecological reasons, including to aid in childbirth. High levels of the “love hormone” have been observed in couples in the first six months of a relationship. Oxytocin has an anti-anxiety (anxiolytic) effect and may increase romantic attachment and empathy.
