Hi Jen.. you said you're currently on the pill but I assume you meant to say the patch. Anyways, everyone reacts differently to different hormones so it's tough to say which one will effect your sex drive. As far as weight gain goes, Levlite, Loestrin, Mircette and Yasmin are supposed to be good at keeping the weight off. They also have lower doses of estrogen which means you may have less side effects than other pills.

Personally, I'd suggest Mircette. I think it's a wonderful pill! I haven't gained weight, my sex drive has increased since switching from Ortho Tricyclen Lo and Alesse, my skin is pretty good and my periods are bearable.
