OT kinda: Depo

I'd look this up but I'm at work. So I thought I'd ask you ladies if you knew.....

What does the depo shot do to men? Like why would a man need to get it?

depo shots are not for men.. they would never be given it by a doctor.. its only contraception for women...

Umm yes it was given to a MAN by a DOC. I'm just curious as to why, I'm thinking its to bring down his testastrone.

. Depo-Provera is a common birth control pill that containing a synthetic version of the female hormone progesterone. Advocates of chemical castration hope that injections of Depo-Provera will prevent men from molesting children :/

Only thing I could find that was concerning men taking it
