Are you a man? If so, would you be willing to have a hypodermic needle stab you in the penis in an effort to prevent pregnancy?
What do you think, men? Would you do it?
The Indian Council of Medical Research has just announced they have developed an injectable male contraceptive.
The Hindustan Times reports, "The product is ready, with only regulatory approvals pending [from the government]. The trials are over, including extended, Phase 3 clinical trials for which 303 candidates were recruited with a 97.3% success rate and no reported side effects. The product can safely be called the world’s first male contraceptive."
The affects of the injection will last for approximately 13 years.
The injection includes a polymer that blocks sperm from leaving the testicles.
Don't worry men, they give you anesthesia before they stab your junk with a needle.
Um, yeah, that's all well and good but wouldn't you rather just wear a condom and not have someone stab your twig and berries with a long needle?
I'm sure we're all thinking the same thing right now.
