I've been on lo for a month, and I still have a really high sex drive! I absolutely love it still, which my boyfriend loves. But, whenever I was on ortho novum it went down a lot, but I was really depressed when I was on it also, so maybe that had something to do with it. Hope this helped!

Yes. When I was on yasmin, and then ortho-cept, my sex drive was almost non-existent.

That's exactly how I feel now on yasmin, and I used to have a very healthy sex drive. I really hope switching pills works.
