I do not want to take the pill because it makes you fat and i was wondering if the man could take the contraception. I am very inexperienced

Re: contraception

I have not gained any weight on the pill. It is different for long as you don't go overboard and eat everything in the house you should be fine. I believe they are trying to develop contraception for men but I don't think it's available yet. Condoms are your other choice.

There is no male hormonal contraception.

Furthermore, not all women gain weight with the pill. In fact, there are many doctors that will assure you that hormonal birth control can not and will not cause weight gain. They say that any weight gain is because of change in diet and exercise, not because of the pill.

If you are sexually active, you really should consider hormonal birth control. There are more options other than the pill, too. Do your research.

Re: contraception

I've heard they are coming out with a male birth control pill. Just not in the US yet??? There are so many types of birth conrol.....but ALWAYS use a condom!! I cant use any form of birth control with hormones........also the some of the pills do make me gain weight too. The hormones make me feel nuts.....i've tried alot of them. There is the depo shot, patch, low dose birth control pill (low in hormones, not protection). You can always try a different pill too........sometimes you have to try several before finding the right one. If you've had children......i would recommend an IUD or a diaphram. I LOVE the worries, no side effects, i have had no problems. Actually yes i did, with the para gard (had period all month) i have the's great. The risk with an IUD...........IF you get pregnant, the embryo cannot attach to your can end up as a tubal pregnacy.....which would be horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The chances are slim. have to plan! Which i like to be spontaneous! I had no problems getting it in....but i coouldn't get it out! My cervix is WAY UP there. Not for me. Oh, the IUD's arent made of copper anymore and in the 60's they were very dangerous! I remember hearing awful things about them....infection etc. They are truly very safe. I do believe though.....they wont put them in, til you've had a pregnacy. Hope this have many options!
