Birth Control Injections for Men

I am a 36-year-old man, and I am interested in testosterone enanthate injections as a means of birth control. Is it effective? What sort of doctor should I see to try this? Frank

Testosterone injections for contraception are not an approved option in the United States. The potential for side effects, such as blood lipid problems and mood changes, has not been determined, and long-term safety issues have not been addressed.

You might contact the Population Council to determine if you could participate in any ongoing trials. A course of shots over a few months is necessary for this method to begin to lower the sperm count. Semen analysis is required to monitor effectiveness of the therapy.
