See what is the new discovery after 40 years of research of the American scientists
Men, would you be willing to swallow a pill that will reduce your sperm count to zero, ask from Askmen? Or do you think that besides putting condom, the remaining liability for protection from pregnancy falls on women? According to a survey conducted in 1997, it is discovered that more than 66% of the respondents (men and women) believe that men must play a greater role in the selection and use of contraceptives.
Despite these results, the prevention of pregnancy remains primarily a woman’s responsibility, which is hardly surprising, given the limited options available to men.
However, things are about to change
After 40 years of research, the male contraceptive pill is almost ready.
The pill contains desogestrel, a synthetic hormone that is the primary component of oral contraceptives in the female pills, and the male hormone testosterone. This combination blocks sperm production while maintaining the male libido and sex drive. The male pill should be taken daily, the same as women contraceptive drugs.
In terms of effectiveness, the male pill seems to be the best option to protect against unwanted pregnancy. The effect of the pill causes shrinkage of the testes, which leads to decreased sperm production. Naturally, the effect is reversible. When the man stops drinking the tablets, the fertile possibilities are returning, say scientists.
During the clinical trials, it was found that the sperm count of participants was dropped to zero, which means that the male pill will be more effective than condoms, and even than the female contraceptive pills.
