The pill totally killed my sex drive, along with giving me numerous other side effects that made my life miserable. I just can't handle the hormones, even on the low-dose pills. The nuvaring, which is the lowest hormone dose on the market (which is possible because the hormones are delivered directly into the bloodstream via the vaginal walls) was even too much for me.
DH and I are using a combination of FAM and condoms. We abstain when I'm fertile and use condoms the rest of the time. I have my sex drive back. I'm also taking Paxil CR, which is supposed to not have the sex drive reducing effect that regular Paxil can have. I've only been on it two weeks, though, so I don't know for sure how it's going to work for me.
We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.
