I Have changed my brith control 3 times in the last 9 months....please help!

For the last 9 months I have been struggling with what birth control would be best for me. I have changed my birth control 3 times now since then! I had started out on the pill, then moved to the ring and now I am on the shot. It seems that each time I have changed my birth control, my sex drive has gone down!

When I was on the pill my sex drive seemed to be fine, actually better then ever, but I had also just started a new relationship so I am sure that had a lot to do with it. The reason I stopped taking the pill is because I could never remember to take it on a consistent basis. From there I moved to the ring which I thought would be great! I wouldn't have to remember to take a pill and I would be protected, my doctor had even said that it even helps in the bedroom with stimulation for your mate! Awesome! This sounded like it was going to work great! Boy was I wrong, not only was the ring painful for me, but if my partner hit it at a certain angle he was done! and to top that off it seemed that I was not getting as wet as I use to. I had researched the depo shot, as I was on this about 10 years prior and didn't remember having any side effects on it, I contacted my doctor and decided to give it a try. It has been about 3 months since my first shot, and I am worse off then I was with the ring! Now I seem to have no sexual drive at all, the only way I can get lubricated is if my partner goes down on me or we use a lubrication AND to top that off I have had vaginal bleeding for the last 3 weeks!

So once again I am going to contact my doctor and switch my birth control! I am probably going to switch back to the pill and hopefully I can remember to take it on a consist basis. What birth control methods have seemed to work best for you in the past without interfering with your sexual life?
