My "problem" is a weird one. I have experienced a VERY HIGH increase in sex drive in the latest months. And the only thing "new" in my life was the fact that I've started taking the contraceptive pills Yaz for three months. I can hardly concentrate at work, almost all I think is sex almost the whole day. The strange thing is that I found only opposite information regarding Yaz in my research on the Internet. All the women are complaining about decreased to low or even null sex drive after taking Yaz. This is very weird.
Well, this is not a problem in itself (luckily I have a boyfriend Very Happy) and I can somehow cope with it, I was just wondering if someone else had the same effects like me. I don't know if it's really because of the pills or, I don't know, some weird coincidence.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. I don’t think that having increased libido at such frequency is abnormal. Sexuality is equal for males and females . The medical condition that has been associated with increased sexuality is adrenal disorders but this seems unlikely in your case due to the absence of any other symptom.

Please get it evaluated from a sexual and venereal diseases expert. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.

Hi again,
Thank you very much for your answer. Just before I started to take the pills (about three months ago), I had a complete gynecological exam and they said everything was ok. In rest, I am also healthy, I don't suffer from any disease (that I know of at least).
That's why I thought about the pills, because this was the only thing new in my life and the time frame fitted well with the increased sex drive.
PS: I am 24 years old, if that matters.
