I went on the pill (loesterin 20) a few weeks ago and came off them yesterday. However, when I was on them I had no desire to have sex whatsoever so when we did have sex it just wasn't pleasurable for me at all. I'm aware that it's a known side effect but does this mean that type of pill doesn't suit me or should I stick with it and see if my body gets used to it? It also says it's meant to "abolish period pain". It lies. I'm writing this in the foetal position right now. Is that just something that comes with time aswel?
The pill and low labido
Loestrin 20 contains conventional active compounds (ethinylestradiol and norethisterone), but in a low dose. You might find a higher-dose pill more effective with the period pain, though the lack of libido suggests a pill with different active compounds might be better to try.
