Women have confronted with the effects of birth control treatments for decades. Specialists have argued that men are not able to handle these side effects if the idea of birth control will be customized for them to use. A clinical trial has demonstrated that effects of male contraceptives are argued to be too harsh. The side effects included acne outbreaks, weight gain, libido changes, mood swings and depression.
- The birth control treatments implemented for men seem to have cruel side effects.
- A clinical trial proved that some men could not cope with the pills’ symptoms.
The study was released in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. The team of researchers was part of the scientists at the University of Edinburgh. The contraception shot has a 96% rate of effectiveness. As far as we know, birth control treatments for women have a rate of success of 99%.
Some women believe that men bailing this medical trial displayed signs of weakness. Men defend themselves arguing that the side effects of these treatments are more severe than they usually are for women. After taking contraception pills, some males have noticed a decrease in the quality of sperm. A particular case had even expressed signs of infertility.
These could be considered dangerous side effects. The symptoms displayed in the case of women were found to be overrated or exaggerated. Now that men had the chance to use these treatments, they have argued that there is nothing to laugh about. Even if the symptoms are milder, there are still present in the body, modifying your mood or working on your libido swings.
If before this trial women’s complaints were not being taken seriously, men are more aware of the problems with which their wives have to deal. Women were mocked for their mood swings and the continuous complaint about headaches. Probably, one of the purposes of this trial was to establish new bonds between women and men, all experiencing the same things, at least for once.
Maybe some women were glad to see men in pain, believing that this could be the only way they will understand their daily struggle. Aside from being the perfect wife, the perfect mother and the perfect employee, a woman needs to cope with all sorts of pains and changes in her body on a daily basis. Despite all these, they are always expected to be friendly and smiling, no matter what they feel.
