Change in Birth Control

stemnena posted:
I want to change from the birth control that I'm on to a different birth control. I'm right now taking Junel (generic version of Loestrin). I have been taking that for 2 years now. I love having lighter and shorter periods, but since the 2 years I have been on it my sex drive has gone down hill fast. I'm 26 years old and I don't have a sex drive, which is killing my relationship with my boyfriend. Before that I was on the patch Ortho Evra and my sex drive was strong. I have been looking at different types of birth control and I don't know what I should choose. I was wondering if anyone could help me. I want something that will give me lighter and shorter periods and help build my sex drive back.
