lately i have realized that i have no sex drive i have no urge to have sex is it because im on the contraceptive pill could that be the reason and what can i do to boost my sex drive im almost 20 yrs and i dont have a sex drive my boyfriend is a sensual person and he's older than i am which is a bit ironic. and i spoke to my doctor about the change in the discharge since ive been on the pill because it was creamy white,thick and sometimes sticky its normal in odor i ave no itching or burning or discomfort so she said every things normal and the pill changes the hormone because i had an hormonal imbalance. some times i find it smells like the contraceptive i take is tht alright ? do u think i should ask her to see a gynecologist?

Hello Keisha lee,

Thank you for reaching out to us with your concerns. A low libido in a young woman of your age is unusually. I think you would benefit from scheduling an appointment with a gynecologist, whose specialty if female reproductive health.

Keisha lee, some birth control pills can decrease the intensity of sexual drive and sensations. Birth control pills that contain estrogen and progesterone increase sex-binding globulin, a protein in the blood stream that binds with our testosterone. Testosterone is one of the central hormones of desire.

I hope this information is helpful. A change in birth control may be the remedy.
