I noticed today on MSN an article about a Pill for men. If everything works out, I think this is a great idea, and would be especially good if the female was on the Pill also. The article is here:

My health teacher was telling us about that back in June. She said they were testing it, and stuff.

I was really excitied to hear about it. It's just another way to make everyone safer.

Yeah, but would you really be able to trust most guys with taking something that could get YOU pregnant???

I think for people in committed relationships, where both partners know what they want, and are open about it, the male pill would be brilliant!

Of course, I don't see it as a replacement for any of the other conventional birth control methods, like the female pill, for people other than those in committed relationships.

Also, I think guys (mostly) are getting more sensible about where they put it! I don't knpw one guy that would take the risk of getting his g/f pregnant..
