Hey fellas! It shouldn't be too much longer before you could be popping your own birth control pills. For decades the 'pill' has been available for the ladies, but researchers are getting closing to having one available for men.

Over the past weekend, studies were presented at the annual Endocrine Society meeting in Chicago, IL. This yearly event is the world's largest when it comes to presenting and obtaining the latest in endocrine science.

The endocrine system consists of glands or parts of glands which produce hormones that are released and distributed in the human body by means of the bloodstream.

At this event, scientist and researchers said that they are ever close to launching a safe and effective birth control pill for guys.

The proposed hormone pill is called Dimethandrolone Undecanoate, which is able to reduce testosterone and other hormone levels which are responsible for sperm production, without severe side effects.

Evidently, this has been a long-term goal in the medical field. To have a safe and effective birth control solution for men.

Researchers said that the test studies were relatively small, therefore they would need to test men on a larger scale before they can really know what the side effects are if any.
