Birth control may soon see a shift. In a joint study from the United Nations and the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, a new hormonal shot for men has shown to be 96% effective at preventing pregnancy in female partners. The shot mixes a blend of synthetic testosterone and progestin, which tricks the brain into believing it’s had enough testosterone so that it shuts down the production of sperm. The contraceptive was shown to hold sperm levels lower within 24 weeks for 274 of the 320 participants. However, the study was cut short due to signs of depression in some of the participants… a side effect that has long been seen in female birth control pills. So, when the time is right, we hope you planned 24 weeks in advance!
