I just went off the pill, but why not discuss this with your gyn?

I’m on Depo Provera right now because of fallopian and ovarian cysts. I’ve been on it  for around 3 years now. My sex drive is completely gone. I don’t want it. I don’t want to think about it. Sex just kind of disgusted me.

I would try speaking to your doctor. I talked with mine, but this is the ONLY birth control I’ve tried that’s stopped the cysts from coming back. You may have more options.

Yes! I was on Apri for the past year.  Just recently i missed my appointment and let my subscription lapse.  Anyway I’m not on anything right now, and i can’t believe how much more i want it.  Now i have to figure out what to do because i do not need any accidents…

Maybe you could try Nuvaring? My friend, who is a doctor, is on that after being on Depo (which she had no sex drive while taking) and loves it!

Most pills list loss of sex drive as a common side effect, I think.


I take Sprintec (generic version of ortho cyclen) and I love it. It’s only $9.00 a month and I have zero side effects whatsoever on it.

@FutureMrs86: You are definitely not the only one.  BCP hormones can definitely mess with your libido.  I would discuss this with your OBGYN and see if you have other options.  Good luck!

@harleyq: I just changed to Sprintec and I’m glad to hear you aren’t having any of the typical side affects. I too noticed my sex drive went downhill on BC pill and every time I went off of it and changed pills I was like a walking ball of hormones.

Here’s hoping!
