Why do I get dry when I start taking birth control?

I have never had a problem with getting wet during intercourse, but every time I start taking birth control, I can't manage to stay wet and end up getting dry during sex. It's very odd, because I took birth control for a while and it would be difficult for me to stay wet, then I went off birth control to see if that was the cause of it, and it was because I wasn't having a problem getting wet. Now I am on birth control again and I am starting to dry up and it gets very frustrating for me and my boyfriend. Why does that happen and what I can I do to help stay wet naturally without having to use lubrication and still be on birth control (if that's at all possible)?
