Now that they’ve come up with a male contraceptive jab, they are looking for volunteers in order to test it.
The hormonal injection is given every 8 weeks and causes sperm production to decrease. Previous research has shown that the injections are safe and that sperm count does return to normal months after discontinuing the injections.
The research is being conducted at the University of Manchester in England, but other international sites are also involved. They are asking for men in stable relationships to come forward. The trial will last for 6 months, and they require that the couple use no other methods of contraception. This means that volunteers will need to be prepared for whatever consequences may result from potential failures.
