does loestrin 24 help decrease my libido

does loestrin 24 help decrease my libido...I also was on YAZ for a year and 100% lost my sex drive, I didnt realize it until I ran out of my script and stopped taking it for a month or two and my sex drive went back to normal thank god I realized it was the YAZ but I am worried that loestrin 24 might cause this to happen again, i explained to my doctor and this is what he gave me so this is what I am trying.....I am 28 yrs old and healthy I should not have lost my sex drive for an entire year!!!!! YAZ is BAD

I've taken the generic form of loestrin (28 day) for years and loved it - I switched from Ortho-Cyclin when I started having really painful periods, but everyone is different, so it's possible that loestrin will diminish your libido.

Birth control pills have the potential to decrease libido by lowering testosterone. Some pills are better than others in this regard. You just have to find what works best for you.
