It’s about time!

A male pill that acts as a contraceptive is finally being developed by scientists. It’s definitely about time, and I’m sure many, many women will welcome it. It would essentially be the same take-it-once-a-day pill, but it would give women a break from worrying about their pills side effects.

The tablet will be welcomed by women worried about the hormone-laden female version’s links to breast cancer and fatal blood clots. It could also allow couples to share the responsibility for contraception – a role that traditionally falls to women, who could in future have to decide whether to trust their partners.

I like the fact that men could actually take more responsibility in this area. Why do women always have to take responsibility? It takes two! So, that’s definitely a nice aspect of the pill.

And the great thing is, with the research that has been done, the male pill doesn’t affect the man’s libido or his fertility. So for couples who want to have a baby, it wouldn’t be hard to get off the pill and start trying right away.

Good stuff.
