I don't want him kissing me, I don't want him touching me, I don't even look forward to seeing him anymore. When I'm not with him or haven't seen him in a while, he doesn't even cross my mind.

I'm thinking of getting my prescription changed, but I don't know how much that's going to effect things. The one I have now cycles the doses, first 5 days is 10, then the next 7 is 20, then the last 9 are 35, and then the placebo/iron pills. Not being "in the mood" ever is one thing, but I just feel like the attraction is gone.
Since going off hormonal birth control might not be an option with your PCOS, you may want to switch to a monophasic pill rather than a triphasic pill. I know some women with pcos (me included) have a lot of trouble with triphasics (varying doses throughout your cycle).

I was on a monophasic for years when things just started to get wonky. I was switched to Nuvaring (also monophasic) and it made a world of difference. A pill switch may help things, but it may take some trial and error. Every kind of pill will have a different effect from user to user. Good luck.
