AAQ: What To Do If You Think Your Birth Control Is Negatively Affecting Your Sex Life
AAQ: What to do if you think your birth control is negatively affecting your sex life
Choosing a birth control method isn’t a lifelong commitment. Even if you decide to use the implant or an IUD, you can always have them removed before they expire.
If you’re otherwise happy with your method, you may want to consider if other things going on in your life, such as stress or your relationship(s) with your partner(s), may be causing your changes in sexual function as opposed to your birth control. If you’re new to starting a method, you could consider waiting a few months to see if your body adjusts to your new method of birth control. However, it’s 100% your decision as to when to stop using a method. You don’t have to wait to change methods if you don’t want to.
