I have been on birth control pills for about 4 years as well. I was first on Ortho Tri-Cyclen for a couple of years. I switched to Lo/Ovral because I noticed a decline in my libido that I thought was from OTC. This is when I started having pain during sex. While on Lo/Ovral (6 months) I experienced vaginal dryness and burning so I decided to go off birth control pills for a while (3 months) to see if things improved, and they did. I didn't have any dryness or burning, my libido slightly increased, and I didn't experience the vaginal pain. I went back on birth control pills (Levlen for 2 months) because I didn't feel as protected using only condoms as I do when I am on the pill. I experienced the same problems while I was on Levlen (low libido, dryness, burning, vaginal pain) and so I switched to Ortho Novum 777 (after explaining to the gyn my problems once again) which I just started on Sunday.
I have also recently been experiencing a queasy feeling during intercourse. I don't know if it is because of the pain or if it's all in my mind, but just the thought of sex anymore makes me queasy. I really want to be able to enjoy it again, I just don't know what is wrong with me. Could it be the pills? Do I have some sort of problem? Any advice or information is greatly appreciated!
