The mini pill - No sex drive

I started taking the Mini pill when I turned 17 (6 years ago) and my sex drive has just gone downhill over the past few years. It's really been affecting my relationship and I just thought there was something wrong with me.

My partner suggested that I should stop taking the pill and see if it makes any difference.

So I stopped taking the mini pill (Cerelle) 5 days ago and I can't believe how much my mood has improved already! Just feels as though a fog has lifted and I feel much more positive.

I've yet to have my period, but I think the pill has just been turning me into a raging bi*ch 24/7.

Anyone else feel this way?
Why don't they tell you this before you start taking it at such a young age?

The same thing happened to me. This is a pretty common side effect of hormonal BC. I agree, women should be warned about it, but since it doesn't happen to everyone they don't bother.
