    I wasn't being rude, I was inferring from you're post 'It's up to her' does sound rather callous to me, but perhaps your post did not convey what you meant it to, at least didn't convey it to me, I can only comment of what you have actually posted and that to my mind was reflected in my response, however if that is not the case then fine!

    Excuse me you are so damn rude, that's not what i am implying if she wants to go on the pill i will be behind her, if she doesn't then thats fine, we use condoms and we don't have any problems.
    sorry but you wouldnt do it because your concerned about health risks but you would support her decision to take those risks? that sounds a little odd. i wouldnt want my bf to do something i didnt think was safe.

    She's made her choice anyway she is not going to use the pill

    So.. you'd rather it be ruined by the endless sleepless nights and exposure to germs a baby would cause?
    I think he's aiming at the point of side effects. Personally, i would take it in conjunction with my girlfriend taking the female version too. But only if they managed to iron out the side effects. It's a good idea in theory. Hopefully they can implement it right.

    I don't think I could ever persuade my bf to take it! But then I was on the pill for years,and am now on the injection, so he'd probably wonder why I didn't want to take it any more all of a sudden! The good thing about the injection is it eliminates the risk of forgetfulness which we're both prone to!

    Dependant on the side affects, if i was in a long term relationship then yes i would take it.

    To all guys saying they wouldnt... Shows how much you really value your relationships when your refusing to do the same thing your gf is probabley having to do for you.

    Also id rather not pay child support for 18 years thanks.

    Because I dont take pills I dont need. I've had like 6 paracetamols in my entire life and it angers me when people pop pills for everything.

    edit: the girl doesnt have to take the pill you know...

    No but it makes the risk of pregnancy much less than when using condoms alone. The amount of condoms I have had split is beyond rediculous.

    I spoke to my bf about it ages ago and he said if i wanted him to he would.

    There are other alternatives to the pill for women. I'm on the patch and only have to change it once a week so theres less for me to forget and I've never had any side effects at all with it.

    I'd definitely do it. To be able to do away with condoms would be a godsend.

    Erm, male contraceptive pill wouldn't protect from STI's, so you couldn't do without them altogether. Unless youre in a relationship where you both know you're clean, and then the female pill does the same job already...
