ortho tri-cyclen decreased libido?
has anyone been on ortho tri-cyclen and had less of a sex drive? i have only been on the pill a little over a month and i have no desire to have sex. wondering since my doc wants to keep me on it for 3 months to regulate my cycles and if i go off the pill will i be ok then?

Re: ortho tri-cyclen decreased libido?
Probably your sex drive will begin to return once you get off the pill. I recently quit the pill after 7 years on it, and noticed my sex drive beginning to return within about 3 weeks of quitting. I don't think it's back full force yet (have been off the pill 2 months), but it is definitely much improved from when I was on the pill. A lot of women notice that the pill zaps their sex drive, it's not uncommon, unforunately :(
