A Female's Thoughts on the Male Contraceptive

Can I get a hellz yeah!

Have y’all been reading about the newest developments in male contraceptives?! I’ve gotta say, I’m pretty freakin’ excited. I don’t know about you guys, but I hate taking the Pill every day, week after week, after month, after year. It’s totally Jack’s turn.

We haven’t officially decided about the timing for kids -- they’ve always been in the back of our minds, but we know we’re not planning little ones anytime soon. So now is a great time for Jack to hop on some of these experimental drugs and get crackin’!

Ahem,
back to this article. Evidently, there are tons of new drugs and treatments out there that are testing positive as contraceptives for men, and with few side effects! (At least they don’t have to worry about the weight gain, mood swings, achy boobs….) Some of the most interesting treatments? Apparently, briefly heating the family jewels with an ultrasound can stop sperm production for months! Another one is hormone implants in the biceps, which is pretty nifty if you’re looking for proof he’s really taking care of business.

Which brings up a whole list of concerns for us -- how are we supposed to trust a guy who might claim he’s on birth control (god, that sounds funny!)? Then again, they trust us. But we have wayyyy more riding on it. At the end of the day, the fellas don’t have to go through an abortion or nine months of weird cravings and swollen feet.

What do you think? Would you have your guy go on it? Would you trust a potential partner if they said they were on “the pill”? Discuss!
