Don’t Worry, I’m On the Pill

17 Aug


Soooo, a birth control pill for men. Scientists from Baylor College of Medicine are that much closer to a pill with temporary or reversible impact on fertility for men. The drug, JQ1, blocks a protein that is needed to produce sperm. Scientists published today in the journal Cell.

Now, I have to say that I am impressed by the achievement- it was just a matter of time. But in reality, I don’t know that I would leave that responsibilty to a man. I’m just sayin’, if he doesn’t take out the trash, we’re annoyed. I just don’t know if there will be a market.

It is promoted as being an alternative to a vascetomy but temporary. Perhaps I’m mistaken, but I don’t see it being comparable to the women’s pill…
