I am a 26 year old woman, happily married for 3 years now and my husband and I are researching different forms of birth control. I have been on the same birth control pill (ortho try cyclyn high) for about 8 years now, having no complications. I am noticing now that I am not as wet as I used to be and also that I have almost no sex drive. When my husband and I first met I was hornier than ever, and never had a problem with being dry. This has been going on for about a year now. We have done some research and think that it might be because of the progesterone in my pills and we wanted to get something without hormones, we decided on Paragard...but im wondering if this will help at all with dryness and my libido? Also...we are both pretty healthy, go to the gym 4 times a week, drink a lot of water, eat right....help! :)

I agree with this suggested advice. Create a romantic setting with candlelight, a glass of wine, a shared bubble bath....you get the idea.

I saw your question and wanted to comment. I am 48 and have been happily married for 21 years. I think it's fairly common for Women's libido to go up and down in a steady relationship. I have found this to be the case with my husband and I. My libido seems to be affected by the stress in my life combined with needing to spice things up in the bedroom. It's so easy to get into a rut and do the same thing every time. I have heard very good things about ParaGard. I would suggest you also put more effort into your intimate time, and maybe experiment with some women's sexual enhancements liquids which you can purchase in any drug or grocery store. These provide a slight tingling sensation and at the same time help with lubrication. Much Success-K
