Ladies can you trust the guy when he says he took his pills? What are your thoughts on this, everyone?

I agree with you. Be responsible for yourself and you won't have to worry about what the other person did or didn't do.

i think that if you don't want to get pregnant (or get someone pregnant) than each should be responsible!

Yes, it is the responsibility of both people.

It would depend on the situation. If it was with my husband who I know doesn't want any more children, then yes I'd trust him. However, there are also those guys who will say anything to get a woman into bed but who really wouldn't want to spend whatever it took to buy this pill. I'm glad I'm not single in this day in age!

I'm glad I'm not single also. I don't have that problem but I thought it was a good question to ponder when I heard about it on GMA this morning.

I haven't heard of the pill yet, but I guess we should trust them as they should trust us women. That's what relationships are all about anyway -trust and so much more.

Yes, we all need to be able to trust in our relationship.

I think every relationship needs to have trust. However, I think each person should be responsible to protect themselves.

It all depends on the man of course. I think there is just as much risk of a man forgetting to take the pill as there is a woman. It would be up to each woman to decide how much she trusts the man, but if it wasn't a permanent relationship, then no way should the woman not look after her own contraception needs.

This way, at least men have the option of taking a pill and not worrying about whether he is going to risk getting someone pregnant.

I think that it is a good idea for there to be more options out there for contraceptives. It depends on the man whether or not you can trust him to take it. If you don't know if he can be trusted.... what are you doing with him anyway?

I also think it is good that there is going to be another option.

I think I would trust my boyfriend to take them because he is deathly afraid of getting me pregnant - LOL

I think you are right there. It would definitely in his best interest.

Well, they trust us to take it. If our boyfriends can do that for us, I am sure we can also do that for them. I'd certainly give that responsibility to my boyfriend and trust that he was actually doing what he said. We don't really have a good relationship if I can't trust him on that now do we?

Even if you could, would you? I'm a guy and married so kind of past this discussion, but even so as a guy, I'm not the one that would have to carry a baby and everything else that comes after (I'm a father of three). I suspect its a nice form of redundant protection. It would be best if both parties to the act took the pill or took precautions. In a way this gives a guy a chance to protect himself when he doesn't want to have a baby. Women should always seriously consider continuing to make the choice for themselves independent of their lover or prospective lover and now vice versa. I wonder if the pill for men, screws with a guys hormones the way the pill does for women? If my wife and I were both on the pill at the same time, it wouldn't do the kids much good if mom and dad both broke down and had a good cry on a regular basis.

I've seen the pill for women, take down some pretty tough people, so I wouldn't knock it. BTW this was a great question and one demonstrated one of the things I like about this site. Gave me something to write about on my blog at ComedySoapBox tonight. It wasn't the funniest piece, but definitely got me thinking. I think my original response here might have been funnier than my developed written out piece there. Sometimes spur of the moment is a good thing . . . http://www.comedysoapbox.com/comedianblog.cfm?ComedianID=3992

I would be surprised if many men would be prepared to take this kind of medication because of the fear of longer lasting effects. I am not suggesting that any such effects would exist, just that the fear and concern itself would exist. I appreciate that the same situation exists for women, but that would not remove the concern

That is an interesting point the nobody else has brought up on this discussion. Side effects would be a concern as they are for women.

I am spayed (lal), so I am happy. I don't need birth control. I think it depends on the man/woman, whether they will take their pills or not. I think if one is pretending to take them and doesn't, not only do they have a relationship problem, but they will soon have a baby problem. More people should be conscious before they breed. Babies shouldn't be meal tickets. I think men WOULD take the pill faithfully. They don't want that responsibility until they're ready.
