We are doctors developing hormonal male contraceptives, AMA!
There's been a lot of press recently about new methods of male birth control and some of their trials and tribulations, and there have been some great questions (see https://www.reddit.com/r/news/comments/85ceww/male_contraceptive_pill_is_safe_to_use_and_does/). We're excited about some of the developments we've been working on and so we've decided to help clear things up by hosting an AMA. Led by andrologists Drs. Christina Wang and Ronald Swerdloff (Harbor UCLA/LABioMed), Drs. Stephanie Page and Brad Anawalt (University of Washington), and Dr. Brian Nguyen (USC), we're looking forward to your questions as they pertain to the science of male contraception and its impact on society. Ask us anything!

It's been a lot of fun answering everyone's questions. There were a good number of thoughtful and insightful comments, and we are glad to have had the opportunity to address some of these concerns. Some of you have even given some food for thought for future studies! We may continue answering later tonight, but for now, we will sign off.
Wow, we never expected that there'd be such immense interest in our work and even people willing to get involved in our clinical trials. Thanks Reddit for all the comments. We're going to continue answering your questions intermittently throughout the day. Keep bumping up the ones for which you want answers to so that we know how to best direct our efforts.
