Great news! A new study found that a hormonal birth control shot in the works—for MEN—was 96% effective at preventing unwanted pregnancy. But sorry, guys, you won’t be able to get a prescription for it anytime soon: The study was paused after 6% of participants complained about the side effects.
What were those side effects? Depression, mood swings, changes in libido, muscle aches—yep, many of the same maladies women on hormonal birth control have endured for decades.
Isn’t it time we created an effective birth control option for all genders that doesn’t wreak havoc on our bodies and minds?
