So interestingly enough, The Sisterhood Blog of The Forward newspaper has published an article documenting that Orthodox Jewish women experience a decrease in libido and sex drive while on the pill. Therefore, their solution is to use condoms.
I'm glad the article talks about the side effects of the pill, but I think if they really wanted to be thorough they should have consulted with people like Dr. Goldstein who could explain how the pill can also cause sexual pain (like I have experienced, at least in part). Moreover, I don't understand the solution to use condoms. Dr. Goldstein has told me that it is in my interest never to use contraceptive pills from now on, so obviously I will be looking into other birth control options. I don't quite understand why these women can't use diaphragms or IUDs (but then again, I haven't tried it myself yet).
It seems to me like the use of condoms, given the issues for observant women in terms of halacha, should be a last resort rather than the first step.
