A male contraceptive pill has been in the works for almost half a century.

However, an over the counter version is not yet in sight.

A third of sexually active British men said they would consider using hormonal contraception such as the pill or the implant.

This is the same ratio of women who are currently using such medication.

Eight out of ten people in a survey carried out by YouGov believe that contraception should be a shared responsibility.

Do you think the male pill could become a reality or will it still struggle to gain public acceptance? And if it does, is this a further step towards gender equality?
