A Male Birth Control Pill??

Birth Control Pills for Men <- click for original article

I have to admit that, before reading this article, the idea of a male birth control pill had never crossed my mind. Men have condoms, why would they need a pill? But then my mind went to a conversation I had just last week with a client wherein she talked about her husband’s loathing for condoms. (My husband has always said it is like having a shower with your rain coat on.) She also had no desire to use the pill herself due to the side effects that she experienced. For couples in this situation, maybe a male pill would provide an alternate resource. Interesting concept.

What are your thoughts??

    Just means we’re going to be messing up even more peoples hormones. I can’t even begin to imagine what changing testosterone balances in men will do. Will a large portion of me suddenly lose their drive and become passive? I’d sooner get snipped.

      Well, snipping is an option too. I am no medical doctor, but it’s an interesting concept of the man having to take the pill and adjust how their body works like women have been doing for a while now. One of my clients commented that she’s not sure she’s ready to put that kind of trust in men – “sure…I took the pill. Trust me” LOL
