Male Birth Control To Be Available In 10 Years

July 27, 2011Comments are closed.

The male birth control pill will finally be available – in 10 years! This news may not sit well for those who want something much sooner.

Either way, Time Magazine reports that this new pill is a new step forward in equal rights in contraception responsibility.

It’s still an open question how willing men will be to shouldering more of the burden of contraception.

The birth control pill certainly represents a victory for women’s rights, but the realities of taking a daily medication, not to mention the expense and some unpleasant side effects makes it seem more a burden for women than a reproductive equalizer.But it’s not time to throw away the tried and true methods yet: before men have the opportunity to try or pass on any new method of contraception, these options have to prove themselves in rigorous trials.

I don’t know about you, but I think this is great news. It’s about time a pill was developed for men, but I’m not quite sure the pill will be very functional. It certainly won’t you from STDs, which means people will still have to use a condom (be it male or female).

With that said, is there even a point in taking a drug that could negatively impact your health if you still have to use a condom?

What do you think?
