Scientists tested the male contraceptive pill on mice, and it made them temporarily infertile.
It seems we've been hearing about the possibility of this happening for quite some time; we even told you about a possible contraceptive shot to the penis a few months back. But this new male contraceptive pill — which, let's be honest, is a lot friendlier than a needle — was recently proven effective on mice, according to a new study. It made the animals temporarily infertile without hampering their sex drive.
Read about the good that came out of Rush Limbaugh's bold remarks!
It’s great that Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a slut and a prostitute! By saying what he did, this misogynistic ignoramus inadvertently launched public awareness on this important issue like never before. I’m sure that was the last thing he was trying to accomplish, which is exactly why it’s extra satisfying. To add delicious icing to the cake, Sandra Fluke has handled the potentially devastating situation with dignity, grace and intelligence. Instead of shrinking in horror from the public attention and disgusting remarks, she rose to the occasion in a way that makes all of us self-respecting women proud.
Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke, who testified for insured birth control, a slut and prostitute.
After researching both sides of the Sandra Fluke saga, I find it hard not to side with the courageous third-year law student, who testified on Capitol Hill on Feb. 23, advocating for birth control to be covered by insurance — and was subsequently inexplicably shamed by conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh for being a "prostitute" and "slut."
I suffered a pulmonary embolism from taking the Yaz birth control pill.
Some of you may remember my issues with the birth control pill, Yaz. After surviving a pulmonary embolism, I can now consider myself relatively healthy although doctors are not sure if I will have more complications in the future. Even though I've been off my medication for two and a half years, I am still dealing with what happened every day.
Women are also less likely to have an unplanned pregnancy when they have more pills.
Scientists all over the world are racing to come up with an option for male birth control and based on new research regarding women and how often they take their birth control pills, we can see why that may not be such a bad idea.
Despite what critics say, Natural Family Planning can be good for your marriage.
If you've heard the term Natural Family Planning (NFP), it's probably almost a certainty actually, that you were given some bad information about it. As someone who has practiced NFP with my wife for around six years, I know I've heard more than my fair share of misguidance from family, the media and even priests. Sometimes it's honest confusion or simply a passing along of misinformation, but other times it's a blatant attack on a somewhat mysterious practice that many in our culture chalk up to some form of crazy desire for 20 kids or an exercise in Pope-worshiping. Despite what critics say, Natural Family Planning can be good for your marriage.
