A few years ago, scientists made a birth control pill for men. It was as safe as female pills, and extremely effective.

It never came out on the market, because men who were polled claimed they would never take it.

I want to know from YOU guys.

1. If you were/are/are planning to be sexually active, would you be willing get the pill?
2. Why or why not?
3. Do you support women being on birth control pills?

Maybe it depends on the cost of the pill. Condoms get fucking expensive and I am only having sex with one girl and she is only having sex with me so it I really don't have much to worry about STDS

They were saying it would cost the same as the female pill costs. Insurance would cover it and doctors would prescribe it if you ask them to.

Also, condoms don't prevent many diseases (neither does the pill, just don't want ANYONE thinking that condoms are magical. Being smart about who you sleep with is still incredibly important). AIDs for example is small enough to get right through the microscopic holes in the latex.

I'll put it this way, condoms help with some disease and some pregnancy, pills have a much lower failure rate for pregnancy.

Here's a chart, because I happen to have one:



See where pills are and see where condoms are.

The scientists who experimented with it saw no ill side effects that affects the penile region. It's pretty much exactly the same as female, except men don't have periods, so it won't control your period. smile.gif

Other side effects were basically the same as women's, except for the ones only women could get.

If I remember correctly, I believe it also helped with acne problems. And just curious, do you support women taking BC pills? This porbably should have been one of my initial questions actually...

This topic made me laugh super-hard.
I think male birth control pills are adorable.
It makes me think they're vulnerable :]
So cute.
Although it doesn't really, the little boys don't want to have children. They want a say, too. They want to make sure.
=D

I know what you mean dear. My fiance would love to have a part in our choice not to have kids yet. That way, if I skipped a day, we'd be alright because he's helping too. It doesn't make you vulnerable, less of a man or womanly. It makes you helpful and responsible. It gives you more control over your body.

At least NQ was just worried about side effects. I always knew that guy was a smart one smile.gif

Worst case scenario if it fucks up... you become infertile...


...I fail to see a downside.

Thats a yes by the way.

Besides as it goes, anything to lower the risk of pregnancy is a good thing in my book been through far too many scares (sad thing is, only one of them has the scare possibly been mine, due to split condom).

My pills have worked fine for me for several years now. Condoms have a much higher failure rate than pills, and always have the chance of breaking. I can't tell you how many scares I've had, and worse, because of relying on just condoms.

I don't get where you're getting that they don't work. Statistically, they work better! Maybe I don't know what you're trying to say.

Sure why not, especially concidering the female pill has lots of downsides and makes girls less horny. It's a little bit silly really.

See where pills are and see where condoms are.

As for the permanent surgery options.

I'm not sure about their effectiveness; why is that you ask, well I got 21 years worth of proof; My little sister was conceived and born AFTER my mother had Tubal Ligation.

I'd use it. Having another form of birth control just means having another layer of prevention. I don't see what's wrong with that. (beyond side effects, which are legit concerns)

I think MOST people with a lick of common sense would not take a pill whose side effects are unknown. That is not the situation here. The question is IF you know there are no side effects, would you take it?
