It's possible, but the thing is, different prescriptions will do different things for different women. And change in sex drive may or may not even be something a certain woman experiences (I can say that in my own experience, I've never been on a prescription that has had any affect on my sex drive whatsoever).

Physiologially speaking, the hormone testosterone is the primary driver per libido. And, because it'd be counter to what the pill needs to do to reduce pregnancy risks, no hormonal methods contain testosterone. Rather, the hormones they do contain are, in many ways, the polar opposite. This is why many women experience lowered libido due to hormonal methods.
On the other hand, some women will not experience those effects, and some women will perhaps feel MORE libidinous, because libido is also intellectual and emotional, not just physical. Having reduced worry about pregnancy -- no matter the method -- can often heighten a woman's libido and increase arousal because any kind of stress generally isn't helpful to arousal.
