I know there's some scientific research which indicates hormonal birth control (HBC) causes an increase in sexual dysfunction, including loss of desire (there was a paper in the Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2010), but as far as I can tell they looked at all HBC together. Does anyone have any info on whether different forms of HBC (especially whether using progesterone-only or progesterone-and-oestrogen) have different effects? I want to make sure I've found an alternative I'm happy with before I remove the implant. I've had a look through the archives
A few more details which might be of note: I developed anorgasmia when I was 23, but I broke that during this relationship (about a year in, so after the implant, although I can't really come on my own still); more recently (I guess for about a year) I have experienced pain from penetration by my partner's penis or similar sized dildos but I am fine with fingers and slim dildos (I know I should talk to a doctor about this, but somehow it doesn't seem important enough).
