Male Birth Control Study by World Health Organization (WHO) has failed considerably after severe side effects reported by men including mood swings, acne and serious suicidal tendencies. The study had to stop midway which was of course a disappointment as millions of people had great optimism for this revolutionary product to be a success.
Ever wondered what a beautiful and balanced world it would be if men also would share the burden of birth control methods such as birth control pills and injections like women. Although there are condoms, vasectomy and other non-hormonal methods available for men, which contribute their share of birth control; there is a significant amount of absence of any hormonal birth control methods for men.
However, this dream was also a part of WHO (World Health Organization) that commissioned a big study with 320 men and a handful of scientists and medical professional regarding inventing a hormonal birth control for men. Invented in the form of hormonal birth control injection, this birth control method saw mixed results and had to stop due to heavy pressure from International humanitarian groups and medical safety. Initially, it looked like that the study would be a big hit with around 96% of success rate. However, stage 2 trial of this study had to be stopped due to the side effects by this drug which was busted by The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. A report by All Things Considered Audie Cornish with NPR Scientist Rob Stein can be excerpted to understand the situation.
1- How successful was the latest study?
As answered by Rob Stein, the study was done keeping 320 men as sample from countries across the globe. The birth control shot designed was consisted of two hormones each of which was injected in the sample. Initially, it worked very well. However, later men in the sample start dropping off with the reason stated as the severe side effects such as mood swings, acne and the severest is suicide attempt by one. But, there were good reviews as well. Some men in the sample stated that they would continue taking it if it is available in the market.
2- Don’t you think the ban is patriarchal?
There are birth control products available in the market for women, which also fetch such side effects. Still, they are not banned as they belong to the women- the second sex. Now, the onus is on men and the entire society is rolling eye with the slightest effect such as mood swings and acne that we found very common in women. However, the suicide attempt by the man in the sample can’t be ignored.
3- Is it harder to develop birth control drug for men?
Yes, as stated by Rob Stein. For women, it is only an egg with a fixed cycle that needs to be controlled. With men, there are millions of sperm where the drug needs to work.
4- Is this study - advancement or a disappointment?
The study had to stop midway which is of course a disappointment. Millions of people had such optimism for this revolutionary product. It was designed to change the thought process in society with sharing the burden of birth control equally by men along with their counterparts. However, hope is still there and in recent future it can be worked upon with much sincerity and hard work.
