Birth Control for Men????Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I saw this artical about Doctors in China experimenting with a birth control shot for men.

I think this would be a fantastic idea but there is alot of controversy about it with Chinese and American Doctors.

If such a shot became available ..How many of you guys would jump at the chance to protect yourself against unwanted pregnancy?

Maybe after I have totally 100% given up hope of ever becoming a father would I consider it. But I am still holding onto that hope of maybe someday before I become too old.

In Japan they invented a heated jock strap that would, comfortably lord knows, kill sperm. It didn't take.

Just the thought of all those Johnnies broiled alive in my scrotum ... sheesh.

Ok, where was I? Uhm, yeah, good plan. If men can do their part to get more women off the pill, it sounds like a deal to me.

I'd be happier if it was something I could put in a bong.

I also saw an article about the research in China, but would like to read the original journal article, because there was not one word about side effects. I have been reading about "breakthroughs" in the creation of male hormonal contraception for the past 25 years and have yet to see one come to fruition.

I would have no problem with taking something like that...BUT

Not to sound racist but considering the quality of the stuff coming out of china and chemicals in baby formula, lead in paint for kinds toys...and the list goes on for miles..I wouldn't trust anything produced in China..especially drugs. If they let it be made in North America where Canada and the U.S have more strict controls then bring it on.

But it could give an unwanted sense of protection..forgetting that that needle won't protect you or her from other nasty surprises.

either way , it Beats Lorana Bobbet"s chop chop method of birth control..

I don't see a shot being as effective in preventing pregnancy as a fat, ugly woman with a nasty attitude.

Sorry - once in a while, I have to weigh in for the dudes out there.

There was an old comic strip that addressed why a birth control pill/shot for men would be unnecessary: Women wouldn't believe us anyway!

"It's okay, baby, I got the shot!"
"Yeah, right..."
And then she'd cover herself in Visqueen.

I absolutely would... but after snip-snip I dont have to!

It sounds great, but I only see it applicable in VERY committed relationships. A woman would have to have a LOT of trust in her partner if this was their only means of BC. I would have taken it easily when I was married before we wanted kids.

Why get a shot when I could just as easily change my name and move to another state?

well people who are single and sexually active should also be using condoms!!

I just think that if a guy could protect themselves against women who try to trap them into relationships by getting pregnant, why wouldnt he do it!

had a friend who surprised the court and the woman at his paternity case when his lawyer called as a witness the doctor who had three years earlier performed his vasectomy ...he won the case then and there ..... a few weeks later she was in court with the next daddy on her list

If I was in a committed relationship and didn't want a pregnancy to result it would be an option. However if I was single and just engaging in casual sexual relationships I'd be wearing a condom,so it wouldn't really be worth the cost.

Huh-uh. Doesn't work. She can still find you. But, join the Marines. That still works!! The Corps protects its own.

Besides, they still don't have definite studies on the long-term effects of vasectomies. I read somewhere that a neutered man becomes
a fat, ugly woman with a nasty attitude.

Should be called "conception control" since men can't give birth, but yeah...

Maybe after it's been tested and around a few years, I'll trust it. Meanwhile...condoms. Can't go wrong with a good ol' vasectomy!

I'd be game to freeze dry some baby franks first.

Then my belt would be off and wrapped around my arm to get to shoot that stuff as fast as possible.

It's the man's responsibility to carry protection..... and the womans to take the pill or whatever. that's such bull, women shouldn't be the only ones with the power to control when to have children. by missing a pill, or 17.

OP... only if it had a really cool side effect like... making it taste like chocolate (for the women) or if it could be used in place of duct tape... otherwise I doubt I'd wonder much about it.

In Japan they do not need this because all Japanese take a super hot bath before going to bed. Houses are not centrally heated and you definitely need it in the winter. However, the heat does affect fertility; and Japan has a declining population - check it.

Where do I sign up!!!!

I don't trust the ladies fully with this... and 2 people on birth control are better than one.

I don't want babies.

Sounds like a good option among other options to consider. It's always better to have more choices.

Men could get a shot to prevent a woman from getting pregnant plus you can pick your own flavor!!! (chocolate, vanilla, tutti fruitti) YUMMERS!!

Its something those doc's should consider experimenting with next!!
