Birth control shots for men work but cause mood swings and depression

NH1.com

Newly developed birth control shots for men work, but there's a catch.

The side effects of the shots can take their toll on the men, according to a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. However, the study also found that the shots are almost as effective for men as the pill is for women.

The injections work by using hormones to drastically lower sperm count. Of the 266 married men who participated in the study, only 4 became fathers.

Researchers stopped the study early due after the participants began to experience mood changes and depression. Acne, injection site pain and an increased libido were also reported side effects.
