Yes. When I’m not on hormonal contraception then my sex drive is through the roof. Can’t wait ’til I can come off it!

I’ve also been on the pill many years, I think around 9. I went off it for about 5 months as an experiment, partly because I was curious if it would impact my sex drive. I didn’t notice a change in my sex drive at all, though. The only things that do seem to affect it are exercise, sleep, and having sex regularly.

I would try going off it for a bit and see if you notice a difference. If not and you aren’t happy with your sex life, you might try finding out what other parts of your lifestlye might be affecting it.

Yes, I had my Mirena removed about 2 months ago (its the hormone IUD) and I can definitely tell a difference. When I had in it we average 1.5X/ week and we are at about 4 right now. Just the other night we didnt it 2X and havent done that since we began dating.

My sex drive didn’t go through the roof, but sex definetly happens more now then it did while I was on BCP. When I was on BCP, I forced myself to just do it, but now I’m off BCP I actually have a sex drive and initiate most of of the time.

No 🙁 I’ve been off for months (after being on since I was also 15, now 25) and I was hoping that would help things along…  FH & I live apart and only see each other every other weekend and both live at home until the wedding so that definitely doesn’t help lol

@SpecialSundae: +1. 

I went off of it for about 6 months and it was amazing. Sex drive went up, I was a lot happier in general. Can’t wait until I’m off it for good!

My sex drive returned to teenager levels once I stopped taking birth control.

I thought it would, but it did not for me.
