I have been on the pill for two years now, I am taking Levlen right now and I have absolutely no sex drive. I don't even want my husband to touch me sometimes. I have heard that being on the same brand for a while will do that. I have always had a very healthy sex drive and now...Also, has anyone else experienced depression from being on the pill?

When I took Desogen, my sex drive was dead from the beginning. Then I went off it and it came back immediately. As for the depression, on Estrostep I was depressed the week before my period every month like clockwork. Right now I'm on Ovcon-35 for the second time. I remember the first time I was on it (four months), I started to get depressed after the first month. It never went away so I got off of them. However, now that I'm back on them again (five months so far), I don't have the depression. It's never affected my sex drive except when I was depressed. It's been a good pill for me.
