    i'd think about using it but it wouldn't make any difference unless you were in a really stable relationship. i mean, no woman woould trust a bloke she's just met if he said he was on the pill. after all, it's her that would be in the shit, not him.<P class="body">to tell the truth, i have enough trouble remembering to change my underwear let alone take some pill every morning.

    just into my digging up posts thing again! just read the article karla referred to about contraception which led me here..

    its true that no girl would believe if a bloke said he was on the pill. if a girl said that to a bloke and was lying, it doesnt really matter if he believes her or not, as its down to her in the end really. althoug hi guess she could be doing it to make her pregnant to keep him? sounds weird but ive heard stories (get bored during the day and have to watch trisha and ricki lake and stuff! hehe)..

    in a stable relationship i think the male pill would be a better idea. although my boyfriend has a terrible memory and i dont think id trust him tot ake it at the same time every day! its bad enough me doing it, although if you do it often enugh you get so used to it you dont even have to think. iused to have set alarms on my phone to go off at the right time so id take it!! funny how you just get used to something and it beomes part of your routine.

    so what does everyone else think abuot the male pill? no one's really had much to say so far,even when it was first posted!

    Well I think you're right, no SMART girl would trust some random that he was on the pill. But I know if it was available I'd love for my boyfriend to be on it just cuz although I'm already on the pill I'd love that extra protection.

    No way would I trust them, they wouldnt be so vigilent bout rememberingto take it cos at the end of the day they can just walk away really.
    Maybe if i was in a v v v serious relasionship but id still prefer to use somethin else as well, just incase.

    if u went up to ur mates and said ur were on the pill you'd sound really girly. I'd never go on the pill even then its around, girls job.

    Apart from all of the above issues, the other thing that would worry me (being a guy) would be "what the hell am I doing to my body"

    I have never asked or expected any of my girlfriends to take the pill.

    The idea of taking an asprin freaks me out, let alone a hormone shot!

    Just stick to condoms and the cap etc.... much easier, healthier and less worry in the long run.

    Harry i reckon you are being a bot sexist there saying its a girls job.

    Personally if i met a guy on a nigh tout i would nt believe him if he told me he was on the pill.

    I agree with Spirit - blokes should take responsibility wherever possible for sex, same as women. It's selfish not to.

    I agree ... but it would still be selfish for you not to reduce the risk _they_ are taking for _you_ by taking it.

    I think it was `95 that I first heard of a bloke tell someone he was on the pill. So no, I wouldn't be inclined to trust. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/mad.gif"&gt;

    I think that if a man is in a long and stable realtionship being on the pill is a good ida because it boosts the chance of a girl getting pregnant but I also think it is a good idea anyway because even if a girl doesnt believe you. You know the truth and it would give you piece of mind knowing you didnt have loads of kids floating around all over the place.

    I understood a male pill has been available for years. You put it in your shoe and it makes you limp!

    But seriously, I'd take one if it were available, just for peace of mind. However, if I were a girl, I doubt whether I'd trust my partner as the consequences of forgetting would not be as serious for him as for me.

    dude. post. dead

    Welcome to TheSite Nigel, but could you try and not drag up posts that have not been added to for a year. As a general rule, if the thread isnt on the first page of the topic board, then its dead. Its not so bad on this topic, but it CAN get very annoying.

    Cya around <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    So they are worried about the men getting :
    libido loss, weight gain, skin problems and the chance of developing 'big man tits'. Nice.

    OK, i can understand the Man Boob thang, but the rest - only what women have had to endure since the Pill began. so they weren't worried about the Women, but they are about men - thats equality for you.

    I say - Bring it on !!!
