I have noticed that since I went off birth control pills, I've had a better sex drive. It was very, very low before that. I don't know if it's the BC or the fact that I'm losing weight and feel sexier. Any opinions on this? I know that when DH and I were intimate before BC, I wanted to have sex more. It was also new to me. Then, I started BC, and the drive went away. I don't know if the newest wore off, if it's because my weight went up with Depo so I felt less sexy, or if it was the chemicals in the BC. Any ideas?

TIA!

Reduced libido is a very common side effect of hormonal contraceptives - including Depo! Many women start to feel more like themselves once they quit. :)

I've never been on bc, but hormonal changes definatly change my libido...
and stupid men...at the moment I don't care if I ever have sex again, except I want more babies someday...but I'd have to like my husband to be willing to have a baby with him...so he'll have to rectify the fact that I don't first!

Yep - it was the same way for me when I was on the pill.

I got really sick with Depo so if we BD one time a week (being married for only 6 months and abstaining beforhand) I was happy. I gained 50 pounds so that didn't help in any way to want to get naked so horomonal BC really made me want to hole up and not do anything. I had a good sex drive until this m/c but I think that once I get a hang of all the rules it will come back. Poor DH thinks that I am starting to hate him because he is always asking me if I love him. He knows sex =/= love but it still hurts him when I don't even want it on my birthday.

The pill totally killed my libido. I was smacking DH's hands away if they looked at all suspicious. :lol: That was one of the biggest reasons for my switch to NFP, actually.
