Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
Yes, a decrease in the sex drive is one of the side effects of depot shots. If it is hampering your sex life, then do not take the next shot. But before going off the next shot adapt another method of contraception. Hope this helps. Take care!
