Effective, sure, but do we trust BAE to take it?
Allan Pacey, professor of andrology at the University of Sheffield said that the study showed the shots were “extremely effective” at preventing unwanted pregnancy. I still have questions.
My biggest issue with male birth control is trusting a guy to use it. I like having control over my body in a way that makes me feel safe.
But, I get the appeal. Men taking on some of the responsibility and hormones that have historically been the sole responsibility of women is pretty rad. A lot of oral and injected birth controls have been shown to cause nasty side effects on women, including lower sex drive, vaginal dryness, and weight gain. So sharing the burden would certainly be welcomed!
