I noticed in another thread someone mentioned that birth control hormones can effect a persons sex drive. I was wondering if I could get more information on this? I've been on hormones since I was 14 years old (originally started taking them for reasons other than birth control). I was on tricycline until I was 17 and then I switched to Alesse (which is what i'm on now). I've never had a very big sex drive. I just don't seem to desire sex all the time or very often at all. I mean, I enjoy sex when I have it (usually 3 times a week... I'm married btw). But i'm never the one who initiates it or wants it. I wish I did! I want to be more horney! But it's kind of hard to tell if this is because of the pills or just the way I am because i've been taking them since I was so young. Are there any birth control pills out there which I could take instead that wouldn't do this to me?
