I need some good suggestions.
I need to ask all the mommies out there. What birth control do you mommies use? Is there any way that does not lower the libido? I've been on the pill for over a year. The pills helped me with my regular cycle. I am facing strange feelings. I don't want my partner to touch me. I don't really want to touch him either. It's not that he's not handsome to me anymore. I just don't want it. This is starting to take a toll on our relationship. I'm really worried. I love him but I am not feeling like touching him. I have tried just forcing myself and giving into his desire. In this way, I don't enjoy myself. I am taking anxiety pills also. Is this happening because of these pills? I need some good suggestions.

Hi Cinthia. I know it's a tough situation to be in. Most of the men don't understand stuff like it. But, if you're really feeling something out of normal. Just get a visit to a doctor for consultancy. Don't take any medicines or pills on your own Don't anything not prescribed! Sometimes, things don't have useful effects.

Yes, these symptoms seem to be due to pills you are taking for depression. Birth control pills do not affect your sexual desire. But if you feel it, it is because of pills just change it. A number of contraceptive pills are there on the market that is very effective. IUD is the most effective method for birth control. IUD or intrauterine device is a T-shaped that is inserted into the uterus by your doctor. The IUD is very effective contraception option pregnancy occurs in less than 1 in 100 women who use one.

Hello there! There are many types of birth control mommies use, but however some of them decrease your libido, but in some cases, it also increases libido. I m so sorry to hear about your relationship. But if you have noticed a change in your libido since you started using that pill, then I think it's time for a chance, but there could be other factors, like are you taking care of your diet, are you getting enough rest? Try to change the things that you think are draining you, and maybe it will help you.

Hello ladies. what's up? Hope you all doing well. I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder after I had my 2nd child and now I am pregnant with my 3rd? My doctor said he doesn't want me to get back on my medication, but it's hard because sometimes its hard to control it! :( I would really just ask your OB and if you don't have one call an on-call nurse at your hospital. hope this helps a little.

Heyy there! I hope you're doing good! I totally understand your condition. This is can cause serious complications in your relationship. Well, some women experience increased libido while on birth control pills. It can be psychological. If you're having problems in this regard, you should pay attention to your stress. Stress can be a major cause of your problem. Don't stress over the whole thing. Be patient and relaxed. Some birth control pills I've heard are Ortho-novum, Trivora, and low-Ogestrel. My friend found the third one very effective. You can give it a try but first, discuss it with your doc( before changing the pill you're already taking). Don't stress over it. Relax and just hope for the best. Best of luck. Stay strong.

Hey there! I hope you're feeling better now. Honestly, it can get very frustrating. Science says that usually women who stop taking their pills in order to TTC less attractive to men as compared to women who are on birth control pills and they have HT levels. However, again it depends on person to person. For some people, by eating pills they do start feeling some sort of attachment. It is linked with your changes in hormones. You should definitely consult a doctor and ask for some professional help.You also talk to your partner about this. It is better to tell him rather than being in the guilt. If he really cares then he will truly care and understand the problem. Do also consult your doctor regarding the medication you should be taking and what suits you the best. I hope everything gets better. All my warm wishes are with you.

Hi there. How are you. Yes this is because of those anxiety pills. I am really sure about this. This is not good. I think you must stop taking these pills. That way you are going to ruin your relation totally. Ask yourself this question. Do you really want this. Is this really good for you. No after sometime you are going to regret on this matter. That is why this is not good. Stop taking these pills and try to calm yourself other way. Don't worry everything will be fine.

I think this is all because you take much tension. This could be a factor of that. Don't worry just try to keep yourself calm. This could be due to the anxiety pills. I don't see another reason. This is not good for your relationship as well. Try to stop taking those pills. those have nothing good in them. Just forget about them. I hope you understand what I am saying. Take care dear.

Hey Cinthia. I hope you're doing good. After reading your post, I feel that it's because of the mix up of pills you're on. Obviously, no man could bear the fact that his woman doesn't want to touch him. This is awkward. I'd suggest you consult a doctor for this. He'll be able to guide you better. I hope you feel good again. Good Luck!

This is actually quite common. I'm not surprised I read about it! I think, it's important to stay in contact with your doctor. They know our bodies a lot better. Prescribed pills are always the way to go! Best of luck to you. I hope it's nothing too serious!

I honestly have no experience in this. Would suggest that you both visit the doctor. Also, visit a psychologist. Go for counseling. Ask them what might be an issue. Hope things get better for you. Sending prayers your way. Restrain from negative thoughts.

It also seems to me that drugs for depression have such an effect. But you better read their instructions, side effects and possible reactions should be indicated there. From birth control pills this effect should not occur. Perhaps this is not at all related to taking medications. Try to take tests, maybe you need to improve some indicators in the body. In any case, if this situation repeats, then you should consult a doctor. Maybe he will advise you on other pills without such side effects.

Hey, Cinthia. I'm so sorry to hear this. You must be quite bummed out. Look, it's nothing to worry about. You can get through this, I'm sure. I have always found it helpful to have a good doctor. Someone, who, you can trust you know? It's so important to have his support. They understand what you need. They also have a better idea of what works and what doesn't. I would suggest getting a professional opinion. Best of luck to you. Don't stress out about this! You can pull through.

Hi Cinthia! How are you? I hope you are doing well. You are taking a lot of pills girl. First of all, you need to stop taking that many pills. Try to work it out naturally. There are a lot of other ways to birth control. But if this option is not working out for you and affecting your relationship, then stop taking it. You are not able to enjoy yourself because of those pills. You are too much worried about the performance. That's why you are feeling like that. Just relax and calm down. Good luck. Stay blessed. Take care. Bye!

Hi Cinthia! How are you? There are a lot of birth control things. The first of them is pills. Then hormonal patches. You can also use a vaginal ring. These are the most common ways of birth control. It really depends on you, that what suits your needs. Tbh, taking that many pills can have a bad impact on your body. You need to stop taking that many pills. It's not healthy for you. It can be the reason behind what you are feeling. Try to avoid them for some time and see if it makes a difference. I am sure it will help. I will pray for you. Good luck. My blessings are with you. Goodbye!

Hi Cinthia! I hope you are doing well. You can use a vaginal ring if this is not working for you. You can also hormonal patches. Although the pill is the best way to control that. But you are eating way too many pills. That amount of pills is dangerous for your body. It can even affect your fertility. If you are thinking like that, you really need to stop taking birth control pills or any other pill. You need to give your body some time to get back to normal. Excess of everything is bad. I hope you understand. Good luck. Stay blessed. Take care. Bye!

Hi Cinthia! There are so many other things that you can use. But before that, stop using these pills. The things you are going through are just because of these pills. The mood swings you have are a side effect of this pill. The sex drive is also low because of this pill. Most of the problems you are facing are caused by this pill. So just stop taking it and in some time your body will recover from it. Don't worry, everything will be alright. You just need to make this one change in your life. God bless you. Best of luck. Look after yourself. Goodbye!

Yes, perhaps this happened due to the use of antidepressants. You need to consult a doctor about this. Also, find the instructions for these pills and read it carefully. Pay particular attention to the description of the side effects of this drug. You may find there a list of symptoms that you have. In general, this is an abnormal situation that needs to be changed. So it can negatively affect your relationship with your husband.
