Hope for regaining libido after birth control pills

About 18 months I felt as though my sex drive had completely disappeared and thought it may just be a stressful time (I stopped smoking around then), but as time passed and my other half brought up the issue, I wasn't so sure. It obviously made him feel bad, he worried that he'd done something wrong, that we had problems or maybe that I was having an affair.

About 9 months ago I started looking for more information online and found many people complaining of a lack of sex drive while using various forms of the pill/depo, and I read <more about the pill> before deciding to stop taking the pill 6 months ago.

I'm sad to say that my sex drive has not yet returned and I've even started doubting my feeling for my other half recently, figuring that if stopping the pill hadn't helped, then maybe there really is a problem. And this is why I'm still searching the internet for advice and people with similar experiences (I did find a colleague's gf had suffered too, but they never sorted it and have now split (unrelated), which didn't give much hope).

Many forums contain awful negative messages that it must be all the guy's fault, all the girl's fault, that the relationship is doomed... So it has been a relief to find such supportive <messages here>, which gives me hope that my sex drive will return, I'll feel normal again and our relationship can be brilliant... with a little time.

Thank you!
