If you are on birth control and experiencing vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, or loss of sexual appetite… you may concider taking a long hard look at your birth control. A LOT of birth controls will cause these symptoms as side effects. If you think this may be your situation, speak with your doctor about some alternative options. He/she might be able to find something with less severe symptoms. If in doubt, ask your doctor for a list of the side effects accompanied with your birth control. Often times, you can even search for the side effects online by typing your prescription name and “side effects” into any major search engine. Hope this helps! I know a lot of women suffer from this.
