The Pill can lower ‘libido and drive’

COMING off the Pill can boost women’s sex drive, researchers claimed yesterday.
Taking the hormonal contraceptive causes a loss in sexual desire in one in six women, scientists said.
Four weeks after abandoning the Pill, women who had complained of a lack of desire found their appetite for sex returned.
They had increases in libido, arousal and orgasm, according to a report at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine conference in Philadelphia.
Not taking the Pill led to rising levels of the sex hormone testosterone and a fall in a hormone that can suppress desire.
