It may not be long now before male birth control shots are available.
Researchers at the Research for Family PLanning Center in Beijing, China, gave 1,000 men a shot of testosterone every 8 to 10 weeks to reduce sperm production.
It worked in 99% of the men, and it’s reversible.
Once a man stops the shots, his sperm count goes back up within 4 to 6 months.
It doesn’t seem to work as well with caucasian men so that’s something that still needs study, and safety studies still need to be completed.
Comment from Leslie
Just because they say it is reversible – does not mean it is – ask the many women who are on long-term menstrual suppressants and then when they want to get pregnant find out that they are already in menopause.
Let’s see the long-term studies – before you risk your fertility.
And a shot – if you have learned anything from the vaccination discussion find out what the dirty ingredients there are in the shot that they are using as preservatives.
