A recent study stated that 20 out of 266 men found the side effects of the newly proposed contraceptive shot “intolerable“.
Only four pregnancies occurred among the partners of the 266 male participants over a 56-week period.
Despite boasting a 96% effectiveness rate, participants in the study cited negative side effects such as acne and mood disorders. As a result, the trials have been halted.
Critics have been quick to point out that the side effects were extremely similar to the ones experienced by women from the contraceptive pill.
I took to the streets of London to find out how the general public felt about the prospect of a male contraceptive shot.
