    How many women would trust their bodies to a man?

    That being said, I think it's awesome and I hope this becomes more mainstream soon. I'd be feeding my husband the pills or going with him to the doctor for the shots (I don't know how it would be delivered).

    I don't know you would have to be trusting, guess it goes both you could say the same for the pill and women couldn't you?
    :ugh: That would kinda freak me out if I was on it and had a partner do that. :noes:
    I do see your point though :)

    Not really. A woman is in control of her fertility by taking the pill (or choosing not to). A woman is going to be the one who physically takes responsibility for that. If a man is in charge of the contraception, he isn't going to be the one who goes through the abortion or pregnancy ;)

    Will be great if this hits the shelves any time soon (ie 2-3 years rather than 20-30 years). I'll probably be ready to have kids by the time it becomes available tho :rofl:

    Well I wouldn't take it till it had been around for a few years and see how it goes. You wouldn’t want a chance of going infertile from it at all or anything.

    My pill (Yasmin) made me lose weight, get bigger boobs, clear my skin AND made my periods lighter. :dunno:

    At least it gives another option to guys who have experienced the "pregnancy trap". I say the more options for all, the better!!

    I absolutely agree. I'm just saying that (even though I'm married) I don't know how much I would trust contraception solely to my husband considering *I* will be the one getting pregnant if he screws it up.

    One of my friends has always said "birth control is the girl's responsibility" and refused to wear a condom. If she fell pregnant he didn't want to know about it.

    Personally I'd feel at least partially responsible :mamoru:

    If you really didn't want kids then having both the guy and girl on hormonal BC would be pretty sure-fire.
     
  13. please. when men are able to take this unplanned pregnancies will be a thing of the past. ;)

    :rofl: Most men can't seem to wear a condom to save their life (literally with AIDS and all of the other STIs out there) let alone to prevent a pregnancy. What makes you think they'd be willing to take a pill every day and suffer the side effects from it?

    I dont know how well this going to work, or not a short term immediate fix anyway.

    Reason being with vasectomy's a lot of time they will have seminal tests months later and there will still be sperm present in the ejaculate. I have seen over 6 months still with the odd occasional sperm. Rarely alive at that point in term, but I guess there would still be cases were pregnancy could still occur a couple months afterwards.

    I dont know how this method works though? Dont know if its immune mediated or similar?

    I guess the female pill isnt perfect anyway.

    Any kind of side effects from this? The names of the hormones have already frightened me. I don't want to sprout tits or anything just from trying to prevent the production of sperm in my balls.

    but who knows, this could prove to be reliable from the get go.

    Not at all. I was in a clinical trial for the injectable type at the University of Washington. Part of the injection is Testosterone.

    A viable marketable male contraceptive is WAY off for the United States anyway. They are looking to use it in underdeveloped countries first.

    I'll have to talk with my doctor about it.
