If you have been on social media in the past week or are in the feminist internet sphere, you have probably heard that there have been scientific developments in birth control for men. If you have heard this, you may have also heard that some of the experiments have been abandoned due to the side effects the subjects experienced. These side effects include bloating, mood changes, etc. Now, where have we heard about these side effects before? You guessed it, FEMALE BIRTH CONTROL!
So many women have come forward after these articles coming out because of this. The fact of the matter is that male birth control is an amazing advancement. Until recently, no one knew how to go about creating it. However, now that it is created, many of the men that abandoned the experiments are receiving a lot of negative comments because the symptoms are similar to some that women experience.
Let it be said that this is an amazing scientific development, whether or not men have left the experiment. There is something to be said for the courage of the men who were willing to take part of the study. Hopefully, this can lead to more research being done in that field, and not less.
