    Contraception - Whose Job is It?

    Currently, the only effective way of male contraception is the condom. There are many more options for female contraception. That's why some believe that it is up to the woman to protect herself against a potential pregnancy. What are your thoughts?

    I'd say both because it is saver. If she forgot the pill there is still the condom. If the condom doesn't work, there is still the pill.

    But this doesn't necessarily go for long relationships. Somewhere it's a sign of trust if he doesn't use condoms.

    Both should be careful in my idealist view. But a man can't get pregnant, so the burden falls on the woman in case she does, and the man refuses to accept responsibility and blames only her. So in my view, a woman should always be prepared and not make the mistake to rely on her partner, especially if she doesn't know him well. Nowadays when premarital sex is common it's very important.

    I've answered your question as it was, about pregnancy only, however. But we mustn't forget that there are other consequences of unprotected sex. The sexually transmissive diseases.

    It depends. There are other factors. In our marriage, I don't use contraception. The pill causes me a bad reaction and if I have to use the pill I'd rather not have sex at all. It's not very difficult for a man to put on a condom. But if there are cases where the man is sensible or allergic to the condom, then it's the woman's job. In marriage there's no worry about STD unless someone cheats. Then the cheater should be forced to take a medical exam and prove there is no risk.

    If we men would hold each other more socially accountable (ie his brothers. father, peers holding him accountable) both partners could have equal responsibility. This is what should happen. But...

    As of this time, men are encouraged by one another to "shuck" the rubber off at the last second and generally resist any methods.

    So for now, women, you are your own best defense. Since we also live in a premissive society that often lets men avoid responsibilty after a child is born, how we can expect society to enforce that "both" are responsible for birth control.

    I think the worst experience of my life was to take pills. As far as I know, women are encouraged very much to take pills, both for contraception or for treatment of some health problems. But damn, I don't recommend anyone to take pills, no matter what, they are some kind of poison, in my opinion.

    I discussed with many women who had taken pills and who had many adverse reactions. Even my family doctor didn't recommend me to take pills, they can cause many health problems (from heart and circulatory problems to many others; all possibilities are, in general, listed in the prospectus, in a 'friendly' manner, not to scare women, probably). If not right now, in some years they will surely do.

    More over, the condoms are more efficient than pills (and, very important, they don't cause so many adverse effects). The pills are really dangerous, be very cautious when taking a decision!

    I think that the problem nowadays is that people tend to not be responsible when having sex. I think one should have sex only when one is ready to take the responsibility for any of the possible consequences, including pregnancy. Otherwise, even animals seem to be more responsible, sorry for saying that, but I don't intend to offend anyone around here (I also hope it's not the case).

    Birth control... I think in Europe, and in the lands of White and of Germanic men, there is a bit of exaggeration with this matter. And we see the consequences: the birth rates of White and of Germanic people are very low (Congrats for Faroe Islands, where the birth rates are higher, according to these statistics). Foreign people are coming into our countries and they are being encouraged to raise the birth rates. Is that fair at all? Maybe it's not the case for discussing this subject here, but it deals with contraception, and I could not avoid it.

    It's more fair that both the man and the woman are to be responsible for this matter, but I don't encourage women to take pills... So maybe they have to discuss and see what they are going to do... But no matter which is the decision, responsibility is the key-word.

    I say both are responsible.
    I'd rather use both than just one.
    The pill protects a woman from pregnancy, but it doesn't protect her from and STI.
    Condoms protect you from both STI's and pregnancy.
    But I wouldn't rely soley on the condom, because if the condom splits, then there's always the pill to protect you.
    Nor would I rely soley on on the pill.
    I hope that makes sense...

    It takes two to Tango so it stands to reason that it's the responsibility of both individuals.

    What we're currently doing is she takes the pill for 6 weeks (2 cycles) and during this time I don't use a condom. When she goes off the pill, as is recommended, I use a condom. So I voted both, because we take turns.

    I think if two Germanic people are married or in a stable relationship, and are responsible and intelligent enough to be using birth control, they should not use birth control at all.
