Male birth control just got one step closer to becoming a reality.
A new study shows that giving contraceptive injections to men can effectively prevent pregnancy in their partners. Seems like the side effects are the only things they couldn’t handle. Men taking it reported negative side effects including mood swings, an altered libido and acne. This sounds a lot like what many women have been putting up with for years.
“They terminated this study once it showed 3% depression for the men,” Elizabeth Lloyd, an Indiana University biology professor who is unaffiliated with the study, told CNN.
