Aside from not getting pregnant, would there be any side effects for males taking the female pill?

I would guess it might feminise the man, since the hormones involved are not hormones that are expected in large quantities within a normal male (hence the suggestion (but not confirmed) that high doses of female contraceptive pills flushed out into the environment may be causing feminisation (including lowered sperm counts) in human and non-human males).
