Will birth control ever be a shared responsibility with our men?

Women have been taking the pill since the 1950s, but men haven’t been able to have a similar version of contraceptive — at least until now. In fact, after 320 men reported that they experienced side effects like acne, moodiness, and a raised libido. The study has halted. However the injection appeared to work by giving me synthetic testosterone combined with progestogen, which is a hormone found in the pill. This reduces sperm production dramatically. Male contraceptive side effects seem minor to those from the pill us women take including anxiety, weight gain, nausea, headaches, and blood clots. So would her pill make it to market if it were released today?
