Going on the pill killed my sex drive and made me incredibly moody—unfortunately, it took me a long time to realize the pill was the culprit because my OB at the time completely failed to mention any potential side effects. (Plus, it turns out that I have a clotting disorder that made the pill incredibly dangerous for me to take, but that was undiagnosed at the time. Thank goodness I got off it before anything terrible happened!)
