@imamrsbee25:  Girl, don’t wait for the big O with penetration. I’ve read many, MANY  sources that say only 20-30% of woman can achieve it that way. It has something to do with the clit being near the insertion point, to not mince words. There’s lot so fother ways to get off. Keep trying!!

I’m not sure low libido can take that great sensation away but maybe so…?

I have had low libido for years. I guess it comes with being with the same guy for YEARS. Sorry if this wasn’t much help.

@imamrsbee25:  I’ve never heard of birth control lowering your libido. Most women don’t orgasm from penetration, it takes clitoral stimulation as well 🙂 What helps me (TMI sorry) is being on top and having him stimulate my clit.

Call your doctor.  You probably need a different kind of pill.

@imamrsbee25:  That’s how I felt about sex for the first year or so that I was having it! I was having orgasms, but they were crappy and small! And I had a hard time getting really turned on.

I think it’s just an experience thing! The more sex you have, the more you start to enjoy it!

I’ve had this happen. I have been on the pill for +12 years and some pills will cause me to have a lower libido, others I’m fine on. It’s all about finding what works for you! But if your libido hasn’t come back since you stopped BC, definitely talk to your Dr. I’ve heard it can take up to 3 months for the pill to fully get out of your system, and even longer for your periods to regulate, so thats something to consider.

@pinkrose23:  most birth control (hormonal) do lower a woman’s sex drive. an unfortunate and silly side effect.
