Trying to get to the bottom of a lack of sexual drive

I've had a reduced sexual drive lately, and I've been trying to figure it out.

I assumed it had something to do with with my boyfriend and me breaking up almost two months ago. I'd never had an orgasm before him, so all of my sexual fantasies really revolved around him. When I masturbated, it was him who I thought about, and it did the trick. Lately, though, I've started to feel less emotional towards him and about the whole break up, and consequently I've started to feel less passion (for lack of a better word) when I think about him. I'm kind of entering that numbness stage.

I've also noticed that I've been less turned on by porn. Now, I also didn't have internet at my house for a period of time, so I was relying on my iPhone, and not coming across much that I found enjoyable. However, now that I have internet again, I was doing some browsing tonight, and didn't really feel much.

I also started birth control at the beginning of this summer, and I was always worried that it would start to suppress my sexual drive, since I know this is a common side effect. However, it's been over 3 months, so maybe it'd be odd for that side effect to begin now.

Lastly, I just started drinking an herbal tea with chaste berry root and dong quai this past week in an effort to calm down my acne. Perhaps this is screwing with my hormones a bit.

So, my question is:

Why am I feeling so unsexual lately? Is it:

A. Some sort of weird post-break-up depression / void?
B. A lack of decent porn?
C. A result of my birth control?
D. A side effect of this new tea?
E. None of the above?
F. All of the above?

Also, a brief Google search made me a bit concerned that I should be drinking this tea at all as it may interfere with my HBC. Is a possible issue?

Thank you / I love this community.
