Male birth control study nixed after side effects reported

A male birth control study was nixed after men taking it reported negative side effects, such as mood swings, muscle pains and acne.



According to reports, the male birth control injection was 96 percent at preventing pregnancy.



Reports say that four pregnancies resulted from out of 266 men who used the contraceptive method.



The results were published last week in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.
