I have been taking Loestrin 24 Fe for about 7 months now and have no sex drive at all! I'm 22 and it's very frustrating for me and my husband. I don't want to get pregnant right now, but don't know how much longer I can keep taking this. I have tried the Depo Provera shot, Ortho Tricyclen, Ortho Tricyclen Lo, and Loestrin 24 Fe, all with about the same results. The higher hormone meds (depo and plain ortho tricyclen) were too hard on my system. Any one have any ideas on what to try next?


You can go with an IUD, or you can try a sponge or Cervical cap. There are tons of alternatives besides the pill. I have read that some of the IUD's have birth control drugs in them, so warn your doctor that you don't want one of that type, or you will end up with the same situation you are in now.


I have been taking loestrin24 for one year and my sex drive is low my husband think is him dont know what to do does anyone have any ideas on what type of pill i can use


If you google Low sex drive and the word forum, you will find women complaining about their old pill and saying how their new one is better. From what I have seen, there is no real pattern. There will be ten women complaining that pill "A" killed their sex drive, while several posts later you find a bunch who switched from their old one to pill "A" and they got their sex drive back.

This tells me that everyone's body is different. If you try a few, you will eventually find the mix that works for you.

Have you considered another form of birth control?
