Male Birth Control Pill Closer to Production Than You Realized
Look out guys, a possible reprieve for ladies could be coming soon -- this could put birth control squarely on your shoulders. Researchers say male birth control pills are moving closer to becoming a reality for all of us.
The results of a study were presented over the weekend at the annual Endocrine Society meeting in Chicago, IL. Researchers said a proposed hormone pill, dimethandrolone undecanoate, could reduce testosterone and other hormone levels responsible for sperm production without causing any serious side effects.
A safe and effective male birth control pill has been a longtime goal in medicine, as currently such pills have only been available to women. According to KLTV, researchers said the sample size for this study was small, so there would need to be more research to assess any potential side effects.
