Transcript of The Different Stakes of Male and Female Birth Control

Women have been given many methods of highly effective birth control. In turn, men have had only condoms, which are significantly less effective than other methods, and vasectomies, which are usually non-reversible.
The Different Stakes of Male and Female Birth Control
Recent innovations have produced an alternative birth control for men. The medication works by reducing sperm count and has produced a 96% success rate in clinical trials. However, the medication will not be made available to the public.
Unfavorable side effects including mood swings, depression, heightened libido and pain at the injection site have ceased further research; the same symptoms women have been enduring for the same intended purpose.
This was despite the fact that 80% of the participants said they would continue to take it if they had the choice.
The decision to pull the trial was based on the fact that it is believed that men would not be willing to put up with the side effects long term because women already do, and that there is no obvious benefit for the man.
4.7% of men produced mood swings, and 2.8% had depression. Liletta, an FDA approved IUD for women, produced 5.2% mood swings and 5.4% depression.
Even though the majority of men said they would choose to accept that responsibility, societal ideologies continue to treat family planning and contreception as a female duty.
Reproduction has little consequence for men on a biological level; they are free to live their lives as they so choose after conception has taken place.
Contraception has allowed women similar reproductive freedoms as men, but must endure burdens deemed too inconvenient for men to deal with.
