User :   is there any male birth control shot or anything besides a vacetamy?
Doctor :   hi
User :   hello
User :   is there any male birth control shot or anything besides a vacetamy?
Doctor :  
The experimental male birth control shot includes an implant of progestin and shots of androgen.
Doctor :   These two hormones help stop the signals the brain sends to the body for sperm production.
User :   so it is avalible? about how much is it?
Doctor :  
The male birth control shot remains in the experimental and clinical trial stage and is not available for use by the general public.
User :   oh no...
Doctor :   we should wait ...till they officially announce it
User :   ok, let me explain the sitution that i am involved with... My Gf of about a year had a cyst on her one overy and had the whole overy removed because the cyst grew to the size of a football.
User :   so she has one left
Doctor :  
User :   and she was having pain, so she went to the doctors and they put her on yaz because they found another cyst forming on the remaining overy
Doctor :  
User :   she was on yaz for a few months and than started having major side effects from the yaz so she stopped. the cyst at that time was 4.7 cm. The yaz did shrink it to almost nothing, but when she stopped taking it , it begain to grow again
Doctor :  
User :   she has been off the yaz for 5 months now and was having pain again 2 days ago. so she went to the doctors and the cyst was 7.6 cm
Doctor :  
User :   so now, she has to have the cyst removed, but she dont want to go back on any bithcontrol . she wants to have a kid before its too late. i dont want to have a kid yet.
User :   i dont want to be greedy and have her wait, i should let her go and find someone else to have a kid with i guess....
Doctor :  
User :   i do love her, but not enough to have a kid. i dont know what to do
Doctor :   ok

User :   she says the cyst will regrow after being removed, so she wants me to "man up" and have a kid with her
Doctor :  
User :   so what can i do? do i have any options?
Doctor :   nothing can be done

User :   i dont think so, but i have not talked with her doctors.
Doctor :   u should tell her clearly that u are not interested in having kid
User :   i wanted to show that i was trying to get her pregnant, but not actually getting her pregnant
Doctor :   birth control in men is by condoms
Doctor :   or spermicides
User :   they say that sperm are best after a few days of maturity, so maybe if i masterbate before sex, i will have a better chance of NOT getting her pregnant?
Doctor :  
both cannot be used with out her knowledge
User :   spermicides wont really be noticable right?
User :   i hate to sound like a bad person in all this, because that is not the case ya know
Doctor :   spermicide should be inserted in vagina

User :   oh..
Doctor :  
so there is nothing u can do
User :   so i dont really have any options? basicly either i get her pregant or she leaves me. i just wanted to reduce the risk of pregnancy.
Doctor :  
only thing is masturbate before having sex so that semen will not be produced much
Doctor :  
but still the chances of her getting pregnant are there
User :   what about the ovulation period?
User :   isnt it true that you can have sex up to a certin time
Doctor :   it will be between 10th to 16 day
Doctor :  
of her period
Doctor :   but obviosly she knows better about her period

User :   10 to 16 days after the end of her period?
Doctor :   10 to 16th day of the period
Doctor :   she will be knowing about her period ,
Doctor :  
some times it may not be regular
User :   so as soon as her bleeding stops, then the days start right?
User :   i dont know the days of a period sorry
Doctor :   from the begining of period days start
User :   ok, so i will make up excuesses from the 10th to the 16th day and i could/should be alright?
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
almost 90 percent u are safe
User :   ok. thats good to know. at least some good news
Doctor :  
User :   temp. fix at least... i guess
Doctor :  
User :   i am 28 and she is 21. i just dont feel like it is the right time in my life. idk.
User :   i dont make enough money and i still live with my parrents on a farm
Doctor :  
User :   well i guess thats it , unless you have any other final comment on the subject? personal option?
Doctor :   nothing else

Doctor :  
best is tell her the truth
User :   what would you do in this situation?
Doctor :  
i would have told her the truth
Doctor :  
that i am not intersted in having kids
User :   i did tell her i am not ready. she says either i give her a kid or she is leaving me.
User :   maybe that could be best if she did leave...
Doctor :  
leave her atleast she will have kids with some one else
User :   thats true
Doctor :  
by chance if she is pregnant with u ,then u will face even more problems
User :   child support if we break up.
Doctor :   i know its hard to leave the loved ones

Doctor :  
child support if we break up?
