User avatar Hello,
This is one of the more commonly reported side effects of oral contraceptives. When hormones are altered it can affect libido. If it is too upsetting you may need to try a non-hormonal method of birth control. However, there are other reasons for decreased desire too, such as emotional, and there is no guarantee things will be as they were before. It's worth a try if you can find an alternate method. Women's levels of sexual arousal and drive vary considerably from woman to woman and throughout her life cycle.

Best wishes.
