Michelle Wolf calls out men who quit birth control study
Scientists from the University of Minnesota presented promising research showing that their non-hormonal male contraceptive pills are 99% effective, but people are still doubtful that men would take them.
The birth control pill targets a receptor that deprives male mice of Vitamin A, which is necessary for fertility. When the drug was administered every day for several weeks, chances of pregnancy went down 99% with limited side effects - a promising finding for the future of male contraceptives.
Since then, researchers have been trying to find a way to make contraceptives for men that do not produce noticeable side effects. The hope is that with a male and female contraceptive, the burden of pregnancy prevention can be lifted from women.
However, people on social media aren't too sure a non-hormonal birth control will fix the problem.
This is a great step, but the likely hood of anyone trusting men to actually take these is pretty much zero
