K. So, bleh lol how to start this one. I'm on the depo shot, reason being is because I was on the pill(was that 1%er who still got pregnant, hence my son<3) and my uterus is tilted just enough that the iud hurts. So I went to the shot.

Was great for the first year I was on it. Now rounding the second, and just the last 2 months I have NO SEX DRIVE >.< talk about a downer. Depression and anxiety have also taken a turn for the worse with my sex drive. Right now I'm involved in a long distance thing, and he likes to try to arouse me through text(back in the day I loved it the first time we dated before I married my sons dad) but now he gets frustrated when I tell him it isn't doing anything for me. And that in turn makes me frustrated because I feel like less of a woman.

Is there something I can ask my Dr to give me to help bring it back but still be on the shot? I want to be intimate but I just can't. And its frustrating like the hell...please help...

I didn't have a sex drive while on this medication, even when I would feel some what "frisky" sex didn't do anything to me. I only received one shot. They can give you a low dose of estrogen pills and that may help

I was on it 2 yrs and no sex drive. I stopped it then switched to ortho-evra which is the patch. I actually didn't mind the patch I didn't have any side effects. I have never heard of anything to help with a females sex drive. Maybe Google and see if there is an herb to help.

I got off depo after using it for two years or so. Quit taking it when my DH and I got engaged, has a period nonstop for 4 months straight, was told I wouldn't be able to get pregnant for over a year, got pregnant right after our wedding and found out at 5 weeks and had a miscarriage the day after I found out. That was October 2010. I just got pregnant this last June and have never used protection or bc with my DH since I quit the depo. I for sure will never use it again.

I was on Depo for 7 years and the only thing I loved about it was I never had AF but as soon as I missed a shot I she visited. The whole sex drive thing was kinda there but not, I loved having sex with my bf at the time (sorry TMI) but when we weren't together I was ok with it. I got off it in 2010 to start a family with my DH (not the BF) in 2011

I am no help. When I was on depo I didn't enjoy having sex. I switched to the pill cuz at the time ex and I were ttc. Yeah went back to the shot. Now I have the implant in my arm. No problems so far with it. No AF either. And my sex drive now. Out the roof but of course I really enjoy it now.
