No frangers, 100% effective and increases libido: Sounds like a win/win/win situation to me

Any contraceptive solution that doesn’t require frangers, is 100% effective AND increases your libido sounds like a miracle, too good to be true.

A contraceptive injection for men has been shown to be almost 100 per cent effective, and may also increase libido.

The hormone-based jab is designed to lower sperm counts by acting on the brain’s pituitary gland.

Over a year-long trial, nearly 96 per cent of couples relying on the injection to prevent unplanned pregnancies found it to be effective. During this time, only four pregnancies occurred among the men’s partners.

But wait, there are some issues.

However, researchers said more work was needed to address the treatment’s reported side effects, which included depression and other mood disorders, muscle pain and?acne. However it did also increase libido.

How can you be depressed with an increased libido?

Dr Mario Festin, from the World Health Organisation in Geneva, Switzerland, said: “The study found it is possible to have a hormonal contraceptive for men that reduces the risk of unplanned pregnancies in the partners of men who use it.

“Our findings confirmed the efficacy of this contraceptive method previously seen in small studies.”

The injections contained a long-acting form of progestogen, a hormone that has the effect of blocking sperm production controlled by the pituitary gland.

Nearly 300 men were given injections every two months, which reduced sperm count to one million per millilitre or fewer within 24 weeks. At the end of the trial, three-quarters of the men said they would be willing to continue using the contraceptive jab.

Not that it affects me anymore, is it worth a go?
