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.
