The male pill? Bring it onDon’t tell me men couldn’t be trusted to take contraceptive pills – I did two trials, and it was frankly brilliant
The male contraceptive pill is in the news again, and, having done two years’ of clinical trials, I hope this time it will really happen. It is for commercial and social reasons that the male pill is not yet available, not scientific ones – the drug companies think men won’t be interested, and they think women won’t trust men who say: “Don’t worry, darling, I’m on the pill.” But my experience, albeit more than a decade ago, was largely positive, and those attitudes are seriously outdated. The first time I took part, I was off with my then-partner to the family planning clinic, when she said: “It’s so unfair that there isn’t a pill you could take instead of me. Would you, if you could?” There’s really only one answer to that question. When we got to the clinic there was a cheesy poster on the wall showing Neil Armstrong on the moon, captioned “Be the first man on the pill!” And so the deal was done. (via The male pill?
