In brief: Sure
Lots of medications effect sex drive.
A large contributor to sex drive is hormone levels/fluctuations. Birth control pills are hormones and thus can effect sex drive.

In brief: May want to see Ob/G
If in some way you are focused on the birth control .
Share your concerns with partner. Make sure to return to ob/gyn. It may be that you have something else on your mind that worries you. Taking deep breaths and letting them out may help with anxiety. Good luck!l.
