Hi there, thank you for posting your question. My area of expertise is in human sexual dysfunction. I hope I can be of some small help to you.

When the BC pill suppresses libido and arousal, as it quite often does, then there is nothing for it other than to just discontinue it and find another form of birth control but not the Marena Coil.
