Researchers discovers new birth control pill for males 

Written by on March 25, 2022

Researchers have discovered a new birth control pill for males that is 99 percent effective in preventing pregnancy in tests in mice, a breakthrough that could balance the responsibility of using contraceptives between partners.

 

Presenting their findings at the American Chemical Society , scientists announced the creation of a new non-hormonal male contraceptive pill that effectively prevents pregnancy in mice without obvious side effects.

 

After successful tests in mice, they hope to begin human trials in the second half of the year.

 

While women can take several pills or use patches or intrauterine devices, men only have access to single-use condoms which are prone to failure and largely irreversible vasectomies.
