I went off the pill a couple months ago for that very same reason. And it has helped my sex drive already too. My husband and I are just careful and use condoms now... Which sucks but he'd rather me be into it and have more of a drive!! Is that an option for you and your hubby?

I've been on the pill consistently for the past 7 years and it has not diminished my sex drive at all. I wish it did because I want it all the time.

I just switched to ortho cyclen and I went from being pretty "normal" in the sex drive area to NOTHING! I feel terrible for my boyfriend.

I had a similar problem a while back. I asked my gyn about it and she switched me to a new pill. My suggestion is to ask your doc for something new and see if that works for you if you don't want to go without your own protection.

I had the exact same problem when I was on Yaz. In fact, I had a SLEW of problems from being on Yaz. I say ditch oral contraceptives (the hormones are not good for you anyway) and talk to your doctor about safer and equally as effective options.
