Side effects are OK for women's birth control — but not for men's?

A study launched in 2008, and published last week by The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, tested hormonal birth control shots in men that proved to be almost 96% effective at preventing pregnancy. (By contrast, condoms are, in real life, about 82% effective, according to Planned Parenthood.)

But the study was cut short when participants reported side effects — including mood disorders, acne and changes in libido.

Sound familiar, ladies?
