In response to an article published in a Puerto Rican newspaper, which described how clinical trials in Germany for an injectable hormonal contraceptive for men were stopped. Why? The side effects suffered by 1 in 10 men were too awful and consisted of depression, weight gain and acne… THOSE ARE EXACTLY THE SAME SIDE EFFECTS THAT WOMEN ON HORMONAL BIRTH CONTROL SUFFER. Damn the patriarchy.
