Low sex drive

My gynae says the pill I am on (Yasmin) has affected the testosterone levels in my body and therefore I have a low sex drive. Can this be and how does it get corrected?

There are several different birth control tablets on the market as well as other forms of birth control. Some of the birth control tablets have a negative impact on sex drive and it might be worth your while to explore other options. Go back to either your gynecologist or seek a second opinion.

Hi there Help,

Yasmin had the same effect on me. From hero to zero. I am off Yasmin now but still nothing. They say it can take up to 3 months for your hormones to adjust, so I am waiting patiently.

Good luck!
