Is it possible that methods of contraception such as the pill and the injection can contribute to a lowered sex drive?

Yes, for some women a lowered sex drive is a side effect of hormonal contraception. If this is the case for you, see your doctor about changing your prescription. Different methods and pills can have different side effects (or none) depending on the individual.
