Why still there is no oral method of male contraception? Now we will explain to you what the difficulty of this method of protection. We will also tell you more about the newest development of scientists and find out whether these pills are to become the future replacement for the usual female oral contraceptives and condoms.

Dispel misconceptions

Perhaps reading the previous lines, some of you indignant: "As there is no male contraceptive pill? I read the article and heard the testimonials of people who tried the pills for yourself!". This can be explained as follows:

  1. In the US a few decades ago really released a male oral contraceptive, but they were quickly removed from production. These pills are good enough to cope with its main task and avoid unwanted pregnancy, but they had an incredible amount of side effects and was a serious threat to the health of men.
  2. Unscrupulous manufacturers of dietary supplements sometimes have positioned some of their Supplement as male contraceptives. But if you read the composition of these miracle pills, it becomes clear that it is a regular divorce (and for quite a significant price). Such false-birth control pills tend to have herbal ingredients, and no one herb or berry can't block the health of male sperm.
  3. There are drugs like Adjudin and Gamedata. They really reduce the level of male fertility. But that's not their purpose, but a side effect. In fact, these tablets are prescribed for cancer treatment and, of course, may not be used by healthy men instead of the usual and safe condoms.

What is the complexity

Why still not managed to invent an oral means of suppressing the activity of male sperm, while the female contraceptive pill has been used for over half a century?

The difficulty is that the woman enough to protect the egg from the sperm only in the days of possible conception – this helps to reduce the total amount entering the body hormone. Men don't have cycles, when the sperm become active and inactive male will have to suppress the fertility process the same amount of hormones(testosterone) is constant. Moreover, to reduce the ability to conceive requires a large dose of hormone, and it is very dangerous.
