The pill and your sex drive

Hi there

Please help. I have been on the Pill(nordette) for the past three months. Since then I've had no sex drive. Before me and b/f use to do it almost 5 times a week but since I started the pill I just don't have the urge anymore. I don't get as lubricated as usual. I have a 3 year old child and after his birth I used the 2 month injection and bask then sex was no problem, but now I even take long to masturbate and it is not as powerfull as before

Could this be as a result of the pill that my drive has died?

Unfortunately both lack of libido and lack of lubrication are side effects of the Pill is some women. If you were okay on the injectable, perhaps go back to this. The other option is an IUCD.

Best wishes
