I would think that a month and a half is a very short time period to make this observation, however what you describe is some of the side effects of the pill. I would suggest you return to the health care professional that prescribed the Pill and discuss your concerns and maybe change the pill to Yasmin. Also try Astroglide water based lubrication during intercourse. There are many reasons for deminished vaginal lubrication.
