Has your sex drive changed at all?
I find since I got it I have ZERO sex drive.. I feel so bad for FI. Is this normal? I want to get back to the way things used to be, but I also don’t want to take it out.
This happen to anyone else?
Oh, and I have the Mirena!

When I had the Mirena in I had no sex drive either… The only thing that worked for me was taking things slow and do a lot of foreplay to get you in the mood!

I had mirena but don’t remember my sex drive changing – I just loved the fact that we could go for it at any time without the worry of protection! How long have you had the mirena for?

@MsPanda: I should really try to do that more. I feel like I dont want to do anything sexual but then once we get into it im good to go, I guess it’s just starting/making it happen that is rough. 🙁 Once you got it taken out did everything change?
@Mrs D: We love that too, which is why I chose to get the IUD in the first place.. we hate protection. I’ve had it for 2 years and have had no period since just the 2 months after I got it put in off and on.

I’ve had both Mirena and Paraguard. My drive was like crap on the Mirena. I had it for 5 years and switches over to Paraguard. I’m doing a lot better but still don’t feel “normal”.

I have paragard so I don’t think that is much help since its non hormonal and shouldn’t have an affect on my sex drive. I haven’t noticed one anyway? My sex drive has always been on the low side anyway.

I have the mirena IUD and my drive has dropped, it hasnt disappeared but it is lower. Once we start playing I’m good to go and were still averaging 6-7 times a week so he cant really complain haha. The lack of peroid is a huge bonus too.

Paragard killed my sex drive eventually because I had horrible, heavy, blood-fountain type periods and bad PMS beforehand, so I was out of commission 2 weeks of the month. Sad face.

I have Paragard and haven’t noticed a difference! I’m sorry, OP, I understand how frustrating that is! 🙁
