Male Birth Control Injection May Be Near. Excuses To Follow.
TheMedGuru.com reports on a pair of two year trials of a male birth control injection taking place in Great Britain.
"Professor Richard Anderson, from the University of Edinburgh, who is heading one of the two year long trails said, ‘A lot of women may think it’s time men took their turn. When we carried out surveys of women, they were enormously enthusiastic. The single most common reason was they wanted to share the responsibility for contraception.’"
Men, meanwhile, shouted "Out of my cold dead haaa… errr, there has to be a better way of saying this."
Ok, back to science: "The shot contains the male sex hormone testosterone, and a synthetic version of the female sex hormone progesterone. The men will be given injections by the general physician twice a month. The injection works by stimulating the brain into reducing the levels of other hormones which control sperm production and maturation."
