The upside was that A: it's birth control and SO and I can have "unprotected" sex, while still avoiding pregnancy.
B: my boobs fill out normally while on it and I don't feel so self conscious of my post pregnancy/breast feeding deflated boobs.
Well... I'm on a hormone suppressant now (for medical reasons), so apparently the hormones in the BC that make my boobs fill out is suppressed and the BC no longer makes my boobs fuller.
It still completely kills my sex drive and this has become VERY frustrating. I love SO, but I just don't want to be intimate with him while I'm on the pill and I've noticed this before... and it doesn't help that with my boobs being deflated I don't feel sexy at all.
At least before it surpressed my sex drive a little, but I still felt sexy with my chest filled out.
Anyways, I don't know what to do.
SO makes me feel guilty because he always says how much he LOVES not wearing a condom...
and I like when he doesn't wear one either because he gets bigger/harder when he's bareback.
But this is really starting to get to me
On top of it when I tell SO about this he just says, "Well I'll work harder at the sex thing, starting tonight "
UHG pressuring me for more sex wont make my sex drive come back, it will just make me feel worse.
The mini pill killed my sex drive so i stopped taking it. It also affected my mood too. We use condoms or pull out. Waiting until i have regular periods and we will go back to natural family planning. We also used vcf with success.
BC had killed my mood too so I quit....wasn't worth the unhappiness it was causing in my marriage. Like I wanted to have sex with my husband but my body absolutely didn't....I was so displeased with even the thought of having sex so any time my husband even touched me or brought up the idea I went into bitch mode and it just caused us arguments, etc. Going off bc a year ago was the best thing I ever did!
It did the same thing to me, and actually made my periods go all wonky after a while of being on it. I just felt so "off", so I quit using it. We just did a sort of natural family planning thing mixed with him pulling out at fertile times, and I didn't get pregnant for about 8 months--and that's just because we started trying at that time. I know the pull out method isn't a guarantee, but we never had any issues with it (and if I had gotten pregnant, we knew we would keep it even if it was inconvenient timing). I'd talk it over with him and see what he thinks, because condoms suck! lol
