Hallo piet1992
The injection would not really be the solution for the problem. If she did not have the problem with the pill before the marriage it is unlikely that the pill is the cause for the low libido now.
In women, the most common causes are tiredness, stress, relationship problems, anxiety or depression. Physical causes could be hormonal ( like after having a baby), diabetes, low iron levels and side effects of drugs (especially some antidepressants)
