Thankfully, the majority of women don’t report the same issues when taking the mini pill. In fact, some even report an increase in their sex drive! The progestin in the mini pill is much less likely to affect your estrogen levels. As a result, your libido should generally be less affected when taking the mini pill.
Likewise, people ask, what hormones cause low libido?
An imbalance of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels can lead to a reduction of sexual drive and energy in women.
Also question is, is progesterone the happy hormone?
Progesterone is known as the “happy” hormone, and for good reason. Synthesized in the central nervous system, progesterone distinctly effects nerve function and therefore mood and calmness, reducing feelings of anxiety and depression.
