Watch: These Reactions to Men Pulling Out of a Male Contraceptive Study Show Women Are the Stronger Sex

When your pull-out game is too strong.

Published November 4th

Over the last four years 320 men in monogamous heterosexual relationships participated in a worldwide study for male contraception, reported Buzzfeed News. 

The men received injection of progestin, which stopped pregnancy in 96 percent of female partners.

However, an independent committee recently stopped the study when several men reported adverse effects including acne, mood swings, and pain at the injection site. Many of the side effects the men experienced have been long-time effects of the birth control pill, which women have been taking since the 1960s.

Once women everywhere heard about the trial’s cancellation, we couldn’t help but express a thought… or two. 

  1. First, in addition to mood swings and depression, the pill can also cause strokes, blood clots, weight change, and ovarian cysts (just to name a few).
  2. And women have been dealing with these effects without any committee calling for new alternatives
  3. Comedian Michelle Wolf had a few choice words for the men who dropped out
  4. Maybe if men pulled out of something other than a study, there'd be no problem
  5. Of course there were some who claimed mood swings were not the sole reason the study ended
  6. But we will always know the real reason they dropped out
  7. So this just proves, yet again, women will always be tougher than men. But, if you fellas care to prove us wrong, you know what you have to do.
