Male Birth Control Pill In The Works

British scientists have created a male birth control pill. It's still in the testing stages, and should be available in a few years.

Men would take the pill a couple of hours before sex. The pill prevents ejaculation, but not orgasm. The man's ability to ejaculate returns in a few hours, as does his fertility. Men could also take the pill daily, much the same way women do. However, once they stop taking it, fertility and the ability to ejaculate will return in a few hours.

This pill is being touted over other pills in formation because the other pills alter hormone levels. This one doesn't affect hormones at all.

It was discovered by accident, as many medications are. Researchers noticed that some drugs used to treat schizophrenia and high blood pressure also prevent ejaculation. The problem was that there were side effects. Once the side effects were eliminated, the new male birth control pill was born.

Hmm interesting.

After extensive testing and use, I'd be willing to take it.

Gee, another thing for the FR guys to whine about. Now what's going to be their excuse when they get some girl pregnant and don't want to pay child support? I didn't want to take the pill cause it makes me fat?

Oh silver, you're so negative. Just think, no more messy clean-up, no more cream-pies, no more facials and most of all no more single women trapping men into support, and the welfare system don't have to do it either. Maybe the gravvy train also will come to a stop.

So fine. Take the pill. I just bet a lot of men will still resist, and still not want to deal with the consequences of an unwanted pregancy either. If all these guys do take the pill, and single women are suddently not getting pregnant because of some sudden explosion in male responsibility, then good.

well I think it's great if there is a pill for guys to protect themselves. I am so tired of girls crying about not being able to take care of their baby.. I truely feel good about this. women act as if they don't have a damn brain. hello if he is not using birthcontrol you should quit being irrisponsible take some blame and admit you failed as a women when you got pregnant and know your running to collect child support... hey they are touch on men ladies remember you have sons to and one day a bitch will do the same to your son .. so be careful carma is a bitch a women will always know where her baby came from i mean whose the mother but will a father of course not believe me women lie lie more often then a man. like it or not

Hmmm . . . I won't say women lie more often than men but not any less either.

Male pill is a good idea, personally I think a CONDOM works well too if the guy doesn't want to make a baby but hey that's just me I guess . . . any woman who cheats a guy out of his right to choose whether to be a father or not (ooh, what's that? A MAN'S right to choose whether to be a father? Heresy! Heresy!) forgets the 18-year Karma comeback-

"Mom, I just turned 18, I've discovered you tricked dad into making me and screwed him over for child support, plus you never allowed me access to him . . . Mom I think you're a bitch and I want nothing more to do with you until you die and I collect on your will. Goodbye for ever you evil cow and by the way, BURN IN HELL!!!"

Not that every scenario will go that way of course but that's the risk these women take.

On the other hand I do not believe that every single mom is a lying, cheating goldgrubber- some truly are victims of circumstance, or even of lying men.

Both genders are capable of great good and great evil and anyone who draws a distinction is a fool.

Just my opinion!

Note how the female contraceptive pill has affected female hormones for years and no-one worries about that but we can't have a male pill until we can find one that doesn't affect hormones. could it be that male hormones are good and female ones bad...

Well doncha know,
Female hormones= nurturing= passive= morally superior= victim
Male hormones= aggressive= forceful= morally inferior= The Problem

I'd be more than ready to take the pill.

But when you say " the female contraceptive pill has affected female hormones for years and no-one worries about that":Um, what? The feminist movement has been rightly been concerned over this for over 40 years now. And has, quite verbally, drawn attention to it.

Incidentally, prostate cancer kills more men than breast cancer kills women, yet receives less than 10% of the funding.

No self-proclaimed feminst has ever worried about that.

Posted by: lincoln at Dec 4, 2006 2:23:22 AM

Christ, moron, why should feminists worry about it? You're a big boy, for fuck's sake; if you want women to wipe your ass, surrender the privileges of adulthood and call yourself a kid. Sheesh.

Here's a tip: whining about feminists not taking up men's issues is like whining about Jews not having Xmas trees.

lol yeah because thats a case of women actually working for their own problems ande men not working for thers? bullshit. its the government and women like you. other day i saw a post on a feminist blog about a blacfk discrimination issue. but yes lincoln changing the subject i donty c how it related. what a retard.

i honestly dont know anything about science and dont know what this hormones bussiness would do all i no is my 2 girls whine a lot but yes this is gr8 4 us boys im pretty sure the men rights will b delighted. most wat u are sayin is basd on nothing.

"Gee, another thing for the FR guys to whine about. Now what's going to be their excuse when they get some girl pregnant and don't want to pay child support? I didn't want to take the pill cause it makes me fat?"
