I’m making this post since I am in need of advice and just have no idea what to do. I have notice that for the past 5ish months my sex drive has gone down to literally a 0. I have no desire to even make out at this point and it is really starting to impact my marriage. I am not sure if it’s my birth control or if its something else but I am at a loss of where to go from here and how to turn things around.
I have been on the Skyla IUD for the past 6 months, which is why I’m thinking that maybe they could be related, but I’m uncertain.. Has anyone else had an IUD that impacted their sex drive?
I’m trying to think about what else it could be or what to do so any advice at all would be greatly appreciated 🙁

The Skyla IUD contains hormones, so yes, I’d say that’s most likely why you’re experiencing a low sex drive. I haven’t heard of a form of hormonal birth control that doesn’t have lowered sex drive as a side effect. Have you thought about switching to the hormone free copper IUD?

I had’t really considered it. It was just such nighmare to get this one in and the thought of going through it again is the worst. I have read so many posts about women that have had their sex drive increase which is just so frustrating.. haha. I have just made an appointment with my doctor for this week to discuss options so I will talk to him about the copper IUD and see what he says. Thank you for the suggestion!
