Hi Keisha,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. Men and women definitely differ when it comes to libido. Men hit their peak in the teens and 20s while women don't hit their peak until mid-30s. If you believe birth control is causing your low sex drive (as in - you had a sex drive before starting your birth control) - you should contact your doctor that prescribed it and talk about possibly changing your prescription. 


I hope this helps and keep us posted. If you had a sex drive prior to your birth control, it may be the hormones that are causing it.
