It’s amazing that male birth control still isn’t a thing. Options are limited for men who want to take control of their reproductive health—and unfairly skewed to be almost entirely a woman’s burden. While vasectomies are starting to become more popular, it’s not a reasonable option for men who don’t want to have children yet, but want that option in the future. Thankfully, other forms of male birth control are getting closer to becoming a reality. Namely, the male birth control pill. Researchers have been saying that the male version of the pill is on the way for years now, but there still hasn’t been any word of an official release. If you’re curious about the male birth control pill, here’s what you need to know.
