Low sex drive, tired and agitated!
An_241317 posted:
I am a 21 year old female and in the past couple of months I have totally lost my sex drive, energy, and patience. It has gotten to the point where it is effecting my relationship with my boyfriend of a year and a half! I don't like to be touched, hugged, or kissed and I am quick to anger with him. He is a great guy and I hate to treat him like this. Sometimes I just want to break up with him to relieve him of putting up with me.

I have been taking zoloft since I was about 16 of about 50 mg and now I am at 100mg. I have been really good with it and its strange to think this is the problem. At the start of my relationship with my boyfriend our sex life was great until we went a little to far and I decided it was time for birth control and I started taking Nuva Ring around Christmas of 2010. After a month or two of this I started to notice the decline of my sex life but it wasn't very noticeable. I thought it was just me calming down lol. Then one week I had a total freak anxiety attack and couldn't do anything. I was being very rude to everyone and decided Nuva Ring was wrong for me. I stopped taking it, but my sex life never went back to normal and I had small fits of agitation. Still wanting to be on a birth control I am now on Beyaz and have been for one month. Now I notice I have completely no energy and no sex life. I shouldn't be like this at 21! I hate it! I cringe when I get touched and I do anything to keep from having intimacy with my boyfriend and feel like I am being smothered. I always want to be alone. When I am tired I get agitated and angry and since I am always with my boyfriend I take it out on him.

Another extra bit of information: I was told a month ago that I had an abnormality on my pap smear and in two weeks is my follow up exam. I will talk to my doctor about this stuff then. I just hope someone can shed some light on this for me.

Thank you
