Male birth control effective, but has side effects, study says

A new study shows men can take birth control shots to prevent their partner from getting pregnant.

The World Health Organization found the hormone therapy it tested was 95% effective, but had significant side effects including depression and muscle pain.

Still, more than 75% of participants were open to using this method of contraception.

The study was published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
