Could It Be Due To My Birth Control?

I am 1 year post partum. The first 6 months my sex drive was a lot lower than usual. I expected that. 6 months ago I started a new birth control. I only (am supposed to) get my period once every 3 months. That part is great! I have absolutely NO sex drive right now and lately. I mean, the idea of having sex is almost repulsing.

I don't know what it could be. I hope it's my birth control. But then I think could it be something else? Maybe it's because I am not happy with my body? Maybe I am no longer attracted to my partner? I used to master bate daily, I don't hardley ever do it anymore. So I really hope it's my BC.

Any experience with this ladies?

It could be any or all of those things. You should talk to your doctor about it.

It could be, yes. Hormonal birth control can do that. Bring it up with your doctor, maybe you can try a different form of birth control.

I've been on a few kinds now. Implanon I had a high sex drive and it was convenient, but I also had terrible bleeding and nausea. The pill was OK, I just couldn't take it properly. Now were onto the nuva ring and my sex drive is just GONE. It's the lowest it's ever been. I only see my so once a week, so were usually pretty excited. Last two weeks, not at all. Have no interest in it. I hate it, and I'm considering trying to find a new BC yet again because of it.

What's implanon? I feel bad. I reject him all the time and I actually think of excuses to last for days. It's terrible.

Its the rod that goes I'm your arm. I had it for two years. I tool it out after a bled for 6 weeks straight. I loved the convenience but I hated all of the side effects, they were bad. I hear you, my so and I went out the other night and he got us a hotel room so wed have our own space instead of going back to his friends house, I just went to sleep. Poor guy :/

Damn, we suck huh? Did the implanon hurt? I am really not into having a foreign object in my body but between that and some weird cervical clip, I think I'd take the implanon. Do you talk to him about it? Does he know why?

It wasnt bad. I've never had the Morena but I'll never get that. I dont want anything in my cervix! And yeah, he knows why. He's very understanding, but obviously it still sucks for him :/

I hate all hormonal BC, so I stick to condoms. My husband's sex drive has been in the shitter for a few months and I think it's due to his medications. So yes that could be your issue as well. Medication (or BC) side effects usually suck.
