Male Birth Control Pills Coming?
This just might change the world as we know it. A male birth control pill that might save 18 years of child support for a one-night stand is now being studied.
Researchers say that a male birth control pill could be just over the horizon.
Scientists have discovered that when a drug dubbed JQ1 is used on mice, it brings about a “rapid and reversible decrease in sperm count with profound effects on fertility” and it doesn’t affect the critters’ sex drive. And when the mice stopped taking JQ1, their fertility came back in full force.
Everything’s still in the testing stages, but doctors feel JQ1 has real promise and could very well lead to a male birth control pill someday.
Whether or not a woman actually trusts you to take it, on the other hand, is a whole other story.
