A fter trying several types of harmone-based contraceptives over the course of 5 or so years, I've gone off all! I hate them! They made me moody but the worst part was I hated that they really impacted my sex life! First, my libido decreased so much, and that's probably not a bad thing because my enjoyment of sex itself decreased. It made my body so much less responsive and sex is way less intense – less fun! Okay, so I know that many women have serious health issues that influence their decision to go off the pill, but for me, it was all about the quality of the sex. I want to WANT my man and then I want to enjoy him! Going off the pill – best decision ever.
