In brief: Sometimes

Micronor (norethindrone) is a very low dose contraceptive and has been known to decrease libido.
Unlike alcohol abuse which "increases the desire but impairs the performance" the pill can sometimes "make one forget why they were taking it in the first place" ask your md to consider a change in the pill.
