Don't be so quick to dismiss

Don't be so quick to dismiss your girlfriend's concerns. One of the most common complaints from women is that after starting hormonal contraceptives they just don't feel like having sex any more. Doctors frequently dismiss these concerns about sex drive but there may be a basis in fact. Until recently, few studies have examined this issue. The most recent research has found that loss of libido is a common problem and may not be reversible.

Furthermore, depression is a common symptom of hormonal contraceptives, especially among women who are prone to mood disorders.

There are plenty of other good contraceptives that don't involve hormones. Women who don't want to take them should be pressured into it.

There are other options for birth control such as condoms, IUD, spermicides, the mini-pill (has no estrogen), male birth control pill. You have plenty of options for contraceptives to prevent pregnancy.
