I never had any sexually difficulty until I started taking hormonal birth control. I started taking the pill approximately at age 22 and immediately begain suffering from low libido, inability to orgasm, and severe vaginal dryness. I have been off of the pill for about 3 years now and my body has still not returned to "normal" I have been to different doctors who have all said there is nothing I can do. Currently trying Vagifem that I have been on for 6 or 7 weeks with no noticeable difference. Since I have stopped taking the pill my sex drive has seemed to return but still suffering from dryness and lack of ability to orgasm due to the dryness. I know I can use lube but this doesn't fix the problem. My body is not producing any fluids down there. Before taking the pill I think I was probably more wet then most females. Anyone have any suggestions??? I am really willing to try anything! This issue is causing me to be depressed. I just want my sex life back!
