For those who don't like needles in their scrote, there are a couple pill-options looming on the horizon as well: The "clean sheets pill" (another Parsemus concoction) is in the early stages of research, and Gamendazole, a more well-known alternative, is in a progressed series of animal testing, which, if successful, would clear the way for human tests, and potential FDA approval.
But what about the side effects?
When Parsemus ran a small study on the question (specifically regarding the Clean Sheets pill) they found that 20% of guys said yes immediately, 20% said no immediately, and the remaining 60% said maybe, as long as there are no side effects. Let's assume the male BC pill has the same negative effects as the female equivalent: weight fluctuation, potential acne, mood changes, increased testosterone, etc. Do men have a right to turn around, and ask their partners to take medication they don't want in order to avoid the side effects? The answer's obvious. Of course, some women opt to take birth control pills for reasons other than contraception, but that only accounts for about 14% of users.
