Did your libido go down while on birth control?

I was on birth control for a little over 3 years and I finally had my implant removed a few weeks ago and I feel like a brand new woman. I feel sexual and healthy, in a way I haven't felt in those years. Could it be the birth control, or it was just all in my head?

  • Sometimes BC will do that to you! That happened to me while I was on the depo provera, but I switched to the Nuva Ring and it made a huge difference!!!

  • No not with birth control - now or in the past
    But I have the hormone-free Paragard IUD anyway so it's definitely not an issue
    I was on a med years ago that caused me to be unable to orgasm and that was torture
    I've always had an out-of-this-world libido and I'm always ready to go hehe

  • it absoutely could be true, it's good you got your BC changed. some women have different effects I know the Depo didn't suit me after I stop breastfeeding. anything is possible.
