    Most of the guys on TSR don't need contraception. They need a miracle.

    Talk about old news, this is from June 2015.

    We have heard it time and time again. I am yet to see anything come of it.
    Yeah, I was asking if any males would use it if it comes out...

    That can already be answered on Google.

    It can take upwards of 10 years for new drugs and treatments to come onto the market. You may be waiting a while.

    It is very important for this to exist because currently women in civilised countries have a monopoly on human existence and thus a god-like status in society.Woman takes pill, man ****s her, women doesn't get preggers.Woman stops taking pill, man continues to **** her, she gets preggers without his knowledge.This can stop if the pill for men arrives! NO MORE BABY CAITLIN JENNERS, MEN WILL LIVE.PRAISE SCIENCE.

    Not really. At least...not yet. When the female oral contraceptive came out they completely got the dosage wrong, and they didn't really understand the effects it would have on women and their bodies. Especially when you consider the proven links to pulmonary embolisms and blot clotting. Turns out the dosage could have been reduced by a third.Also, worth keeping in mind that the male oral contraceptive obviously has no STI preventing effects, and the only real way to prevent most of those are condoms. I know you should have more than one form of contraception, but they're the most...uh...elegant solution.
    These are all points I agree with. One should be very hesitant to ever allow themselves to be a guinea pig for a new type of drug that is released... Lots can go wrong. It seems especially silly when the female options atm are as safe as they are (not entirely safe, but likely far safer than this will be when it is released). Perhaps 10 years after it is released or so though if I still care...

    Also I should note my gf at least said that she'd trust me on it and thus have sex with just a male pill being used as the contraceptive method, assuming of course it was equally effective as the , So at least she trusts me! She did put a fairly big 'errrm' before hand though lol. Women too rarely consider the fact that men have to put such trust in women when making the decision in a LTR to not use condoms...

    All the guys who have had kids against their will because their woman had forgotten to take the pill or worse, deliberately lie about using it must be praising this

    Yep. The sad thing is though that it likely will take 10 years before it comes out to the public and another 10 or 20 years for it to be safe to use, so most of us around right now won't really see the major benefits. It's nice that my potential children (which are hopefully planned!) will have this benefit though. Hey, it's just fairer for both genders.

    I can't believe one of my economics tutors actually had this happen to him, well I can, but I can't believe he told me the story of it lol. Although this was sneakier than the pill - his woman said she has an IUD installer when she never did.

    That's just wrong; plain and simple. Lying to someone like that is despicable

    I identify as feminist but I do think men should have more reproductive rights than they do at the present time. It would even out the situation a lot to have men in charge of their own contraception without having to use condoms

    Surely if a couple want a child, they will do so irrespective of their birth control method. If, however, they don't want a child, then similarly they won't. Where's the "god-like status"?
    You're talking to a MRAwron who thinks that millions of women can't wait to trap some poor man into being a father, before kicking him out and claiming half his income forever as child support.
