Yes, I definitely have decreased sex drive when taking BCPs, not to mention pretty bad vaginal dryness.  I quit taking them because of these reasons and a whole bunch of other side effects.  

Only other advice to you would be to maybe try a different brand (this seems to work for some people), or try a different method of BC.  Although none are quite as reassuring as the pill, and if you have a decreased sex drive on the pill, probably wouldn’t be much different using the ring, IUD, etc. Might be worth a shot though!  I feel like I have tried and hated almost every type of birth control (pill, NuvaRing, Mirena IUD, DepoProvera shot). 

Being a woman sucks.  Let’s create a birth control pill for guys and see how THEY like their hormones being all messed up!

so your drive decreased when you stopped taking the pills or when you started up again?
