Dr. Sawyer: Although this is by no means an extremely common occurrence, some oral contraceptives (the pill) have been known to reduce libido in their users, which is a total bummer given the very reason you’re taking the pill is to be able to have sex. Maybe that’s how the pill works … you take it, lose your sex drive, never have sex and therefore you don’t get pregnant? … No, not really. If you do take the pill and feel like your libido is disappearing, see your medical practitioner and ask if there is another type of pill you could try. Finding the right pill for you given all the products on the market today is possibly more art than science.
