We keep hearing a "male pill" is only a short way off. Where is it?

Anyone else notice for the last 30 plus years we have been promised that a MALE pill is only a "few years off"? SO...where is it? Will you use a MALE BIRTH CONTROL pill if it comes out?

I feel the same way... I'd love to see this. At this point, I have an IUD so I'm not in need of any other birth control, but I would love to have male BC available, as a viable option.

I think it'd be great. My pill plus his pill?

I've heard about this. It's supposed to be from a plant that grows naturally in... Malaysia, maybe? I'll need to do some internet hunting. Then I'll get back to you guys.

EDIT: It's Indonesian. Still hunting more stuff....

Here we go!

Apparently they've been doing tests on mice since 1987; they want to start human testing soon.

Thanks for the links and helpful info, I look forward to seeing the pill available for human consumption.

It's still weird, how the female pill was tested for only 10 years before being put on the market, and it's still the shittiest, most side-effect causing pill ever, and they still sell it, and how they take their damn time to test everything for the male pill even if the things they need to use were used for centuries and they were not side-effect causing and didn't mess with hormones. I've also heard they won't ever put it on the market because they think men would refuse to take it. Fufufuf. I don't think I'll ever see it in my whole lifetime... And yes, we're in 2012 and this thread dates from 2011. Well, my 2011 friends, yet another year without a male BCP.
