    After all the topics about unwanted pregnancies and contraceptives we have had lately around here I would like to poll the guys of vag. I remember seeing this in a magazine before when they first started working on male BC pills.

    If we assume the male BC pill would have the same side effects as the girls version (weight gain, stroke, unwanted hair grow or hair lost, clears the skin from acne etc), then would you take the pill if your gf refused to or was unable to due to health issues.

    Edit: talking about male hormonal contraceptive

    Heh, I'm not the one who gets prenant and has to carry a baby for 9 months or face the idea of abortion.

    Why would I take a pill with crazy side effects when getting pregnant isn't something I have to worry about?

    I love being a man.

    So you are saying you have no claim to your child? That if you got a girl pregnant it would be completely up to her what to do with YOUR child.

    Please go sterilize yourself right now if this is your view on your offspring.

    :rofl:

    Don't put words in my mouth.

    Don't worry, though, the double standard here flips when it comes to actually HAVING THE BABY.

    You, the woman, get to make the choice whether it lives or dies. I, the man, do not get a choice. If you have it, I have to pay for it.

    So please, I'm glad I at least have THIS much. I'm never taking birth control. Ever.

    from what i understand there will be 2 different types of bc hormonal and non hormonal. With taking hormones no matter what you take them for or what gender you are, you enforce new hormonal balance in your body. Each hormone has a contracting one. If you intake more of one then your body produces less of the other. Side effects depends on which hormones are affected how. Certain hormones affect hair grow, other affect metabolism, etc etc. If a guy takes estrogen he can even develop breasts and stop having facial hair. If a woman takes testosterone we grow facial hair and can look pretty scary (arnold in a wig).

    The way hormonal birth control usually work is it affects the reproductive system by introducing higher values of a hourmon so it becomes impossible to conceive (or produce sperm) that means it will in fact cause somewhere in the male body to tilt the scales of your natural balance.

    if your balance is responsible for how males differ from females chances are breaking that balance will result in unwanted side effects as with women.

    taking any hormones increases the risk of stroke because spikes in hormones in your blood can cause your blood vessels to react (shrink or expand) mainly because adrenaline and nor adrenaline are hormones as well, and because there are so many hormones responsible for your brain function that misbalanced can cause an issue. Smoking increases the risk due to the fact that nicotine contracts blood vessels.

    Thats understandable and it is the smartesting when it comes to your health. Next question would you force your gf to take the pill or would you let her choose an alternate method if she felt the same way about hormones.

    None of that makes any sense to me, Viper & ZAPU!

    Why would I depend on someone else having control over my future when I could take that power for myself? I trust myself above all. I would rather be the one in control. You guys are looking a gift horse in the mouth! You don't have to worry about other people being irresponsible, you can just take male b.c. yourself.

    I would prefer something else because I am familiar with female birth control and know from experience that it CAN have negligible side effects. In fact it can have positive side effects. Bigger breasts.

    It is just ignorance and doubt on my part. If male bc turns out to be as awesome as female bc can be, I would be down.

    other altenatives:
    IUD (copper) -
    Effectiveness
    The IUD is one of the most effective reversible methods of birth control. Of 100 women who use ParaGard or Mirena, one or fewer will become pregnant during the first year of typical* use. Fewer than one will become pregnant with perfect** use. Fewer pregnancies occur with continued use.
    http://www.plannedparenthood.org/birth-control-pregnancy/birth-control/intrauterine-devices.htm

    Diaphragms, caps, and shields -

    Sixteen out of 100 women who use the diaphragm will become pregnant during the first year of typical use.* Six will become pregnant with perfect use.**

    Fourteen out of 100 women who have never been pregnant or given birth vaginally and use FemCap will become pregnant during the first year of typical use. Of 100 women who have given birth vaginally and use FemCap, 29 will become pregnant during the first year of typical use.*** Effectiveness rates for perfect use are not available.
    Fifteen out of 100 women who use the shield will become pregnant during the first year of typical use. Effectiveness rates for perfect use are not available.

    vs Pill -
    The pill is one of the most effective reversible methods of birth control. Of 100 women who use the pill, only eight will become pregnant during the first year of typical use.* Fewer than one will become pregnant with perfect use.** Maybe slightly less effective for overweight women.

    Certain medicines and supplements may make the pill less effective. These include
