The pill has been one of the two most commonly used forms of birth control since 1928, and 80 percent of sexually active women have used it at some point.

(function(d, s, id) {
if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
var js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
js.src = ‘//cdn4.wibbitz.com/static.js’;
d.getElementsByTagName(‘body’)[0].appendChild(js);
}(document, ‘script’, ‘wibbitz-static-embed’));

What’s more is that it’s an incredibly effective form of birth control. When used perfectly (at the same time every day etc.) it has less than a one percent failure rate. If you’re a man in a relationship, there’s a good chance there is a pack of birth control pills somewhere in your home right now! And yet, men have a lot of misconceptions about this tiny powdered circle of hormones women pop in their mouths. Misconceptions that can make them at the very least judgmental, and at worst ignorant to how to prevent pregnancy. Here are things women wish men understood about the pill.

A lot of women miss them
