Microgynon - The pill and sex drive
7 Replies
cazza87 - August 24

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone can help? I've only recently started to think about this as my issue is effecting my relationship. For the 3 weeks i am on the pill i have no interest in sex with my partner. He's starting to think i dont fancy him anymore which is completely untrue. However for the week that i have my period i want it all the time but cant because i have my period. Is there any other pill which could at least help decrease this problem? Has anyone found this particular pill a problem? Please help
Thanks

Changes in sex drive, in most cases a decrease in libido is one of the most common side effects of birth control pill. Might as well talk to your partner about this and work together in increasing your sex drive.

If you change your recent birth control pill to one that's more androgenic [testosterone-like], your sex drive or libido comes back. Otherwise, find another method since your relationship is greatly affected with this effect.

one thing you should consider while taking better control pills is the decrease of sexual desire or arrousal. i think you should open this up with your doctor.

do you really think it's the pills that causing it? then maybe you should consider another pill.

i agree with caroline. choose a pill that may not affect your libido or else it would affect your sexual arrousal big time!

i do believe that all birth control pills may tend to lesser your libido. any other input?

right samsam, that's why it's called "libido killer".
most women losing interest in sex if not menopause are due to birth control pills.
