I am starting it on the 19th.

Update 2:

i was talking to my friend and he thinks 2 months is short and wants to up it to 4 months instead of 2 and for $300 dollars and i agreed what might happen

    You'll get bitchy once a month. And those cramps, they'll go away.

    Hormones are slow to change, but 2 months would be long enough to cause potentially serious problems.

    Estrogen in the pills would overload a man's systems and could cause problems.... there is no way to know since each person is different. Hormones take time to change, and they take time to change BACK to being correct. If they are changed by drugs, they might not just change back on their own. But the symptoms are most likely to be in the future and not necessarily immediate, so it's not like he'd say "oh, look, I got this from taking the pill." Maybe there would be no symptoms. Who knows.

    I wouldn't mess with it. I know too many WOMEN who have problems (serious and minor) because of taking the pill!

    The fact that "men don't have ovaries" like someone else said is irrelivant... they still have estrogen!

    Youre a man named Jessica?

    Birth control pills are female hormones. If youre a man and you take them for 2 months, youre going to look a lot more like a Jessica when you finish than you did when you started.

    Sounds like your pal wouldn't mind seeing your skin grow softer and your eyes get prettier. After a while, your bodyfat will shift, if you know what I mean.

    Is your walk starting to get a certain 'swish'? Since you'll win the bet, he could pay you off in better hormone supplies. Progesterone, maybe.You'll be a real cutie in no time.

    You'll have some progesterone running around in your system for a while, and maybe some estrogen if the pill contains it, but you won't be harmed.

    Absolutely not. They gain intelligence, beauty, and the ability to nurture. Wait that's a woman. Sorry don't try it.

  • No, a resident at a group home I work at takes it for chronic masterbation. You just won't have a sex drive anymore.

    i have a mail gay friend that takes them and there has not been much of an effect other than him starting to get a little breast.

    should be no lasting damage, but it will alter hormone levels, so i suggest consulting a proffessional before egining on this course of action
