All Hail To Our Women

I came across a scientific study today that had me giggling like a school boy inside my head.

Many may not know (I didn’t),  there’s a male birth control shot which exists and is nearly 96% percent effective at preventing pregnancy. A study was conducted between 2008 and 2012 in which a contraceptive shot was administered once every 8 weeks to 320 healthy men in monogamous relationships with female partners. Conducted at health centers around the world, the men in the study ranged from 18 to 45 years of age. They underwent testing to ensure that they had a normal sperm count at the start.

316 out of the 320 participants did NOT get pregnant during the duration of this study so it’s apparently obvious this male contraceptive is effective at preventing pregnancy. Sadly, the contraceptive ended early after men taking it reported negative side effects including mood swings, an altered libido and acne.

In other words, they experienced side effects faced by women already taking birth control every day. Such pansies!

An astounding 99% of sexually active women between 2006 and 2010 had used birth control, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And many forms of birth control widely used by women can result in side effects similar to those experienced by men in the study. I don’t see this being the norm anytime soon but it’s certainly a step in the right direction for gender equality.

In the words of the famous astronaut Neil Armstrong, “that’s one small step for man, one giant leap for womankind”.

Or something like that.
