Hi.

I have a few questions. I feel a little embarassed asking about this, but I need someone elses opinion on it. Sooooo, here goes.

First of all, I am on Ortho tri-cyclen. Early on in my relationship with my now husband, we had a very heated relationship. I have been on the pill for going on 5 years now. It is getting to where I don't want it as much anymore and he complains. When I do go off it for a month or so our relationship changes for the better, but we can't do anything because we can't have a child right now. We are trying to wait for a couple more years.

Is this something that others that are on the pill go through after awhile. Please let me know. Thanks.

Christina

Let me see if I understand. . . Are you saying that you sex drive is affected by the birth control pill? You are more interested in sex when you are not taking the pill . . .?

If that is the case, I can't say that I have a lot of advice. I was on the pill for ten years. I never noticed that my interenst in sex was ever changed. You may want to talk with your doctor about putting you on a differernt pill. There are so many out there!! HTH.

Also, If you're not ready for a baby just yet, you might want to be careful going on and off the pill. That might be a good way to get pregnant

I think I know what you mean!!! I uh used to be MUCH more interested pre-pill (Yasmin) than I am now and I haven't been on the pill for that long (only about a year). This has been something that I have been meaning to talk to my ob-gyn about as well. I would agree that you should probably talk to your ob-gyn because I have been on another brand of bc before (aaah....but I can't seem to be able to remember its name right now) and don't remember it killing my 'drive' quite like now. I was reading some information online and it said that there are over 40 pill formulations available now...so you should be able to find one that doesn't kill your 'urges' as much
Good luck!!!

Thanks, I appreciate all your help.

I will ask my ob/gyn when I go in for my yearly check up in the next month or so.

As for the going off the pill, we only did that when we couldn't afford the cost of the pills.


Thanks again.

Christina

When I was on the pill, I also experienced a decrease in my sex drive! I would definitely talk to your OBGYN and see if he can put you on something else. Good Luck!

I take the generic OTC, I havn't noticed any difference at all. ut i've only been on it for going on 4 months.

As other said, talk to your DR, they may be able to find something else that will not effect your sex drive as much.

I know OTC, hasn't worked for anyody in my family, but I reallly like it. I havn't gained but a couple pounds, but thats my fault for not eating right [way to much junk].
