Sex drive and pill...

This is just one of those am I alone or not type of questions. I know I'm not but I just like to hear other experiences. I've been on the pill since early 2009 and so far I have had no problems with it. My sex drive is still the same...I don't think it has lowered. I just always hear a lot of women complaining about it lowering and disappear sex a lot of people say about antidepressants. I know everybody is different and not everyone will react the same. But is that side effect really common? And I'm one of the minorities that doesn't effect at all? I never really hear any positive stories about the pill. I know this is the internet and you will hear a lot more horror stories. I dunno if this is true or not but is the pill have a higher failure rate then the IUD for example. Is it because people don't take the pill correctly and with the IUD you don't have to worry about taking at the same time everyday? I just cringe at having something inside me like that and more comfortable with taking pills...I don't think I have to worry about failure since I do take everyday at the same time...but it is still a concern. And I also am not having any of the common side effects like most would have on pills. Which is good I'm not complaining I'm just curious about others experiences. And hopefully this still means that the pill is working.

Also I want to have sex..I think about it all the time. It's been about two years and also not really having anything else for a long time. But me with my worried brain I still worry that something will go wrong. I know..I'm already seeing a therapist and maybe I should bring it up but then again I'm not too comfortable with talking about that yet. Also about masturbating and making it more exciting since everytime I do it I become sad and depressed after it. I'm just wondering if anyone has any tips?
