Mini Pills Increase Sex Drive, So Why Wouldn’t Mirenas?

Sex drive is complicated. New partners can provide a spark, but a lot is controlled by our hormones. . We all want to understand how to keep that sex drive going at least in the top gear or two, and most of us realize that hormones play an important role in this. Libido can be increased as well as depressed by contraceptive choices. And some of the research is conflicting, In many studies the progesterone only pills (POP) also known as mini pills increase sex drive. But in some studies the progesterone containing IUD decreases sex drive. The progesterone is similar in these two types of contraception, the mini pill and the progesterone IUD, but not the same. Androgen levels should be higher with these two progesterone contraceptives, than they would be on traditional pills or even in our normal cycles. And the male hormone androgen is linked to sexuality.. But are our androgen levels the only factor?
