Birth control pills for Men!!!

Every one of us is aware about birth control pills in women. Has anyone ever imagined a day when men will start using daily birth control pills for contraception in this male dominant world?

Researcher showed, consumption of a newly developed birth control pill daily containing Dimethandrolone undecanoate for men provides effective contraception and appears to be safe on preliminary results. The study was conducted in 100 healthy men between ages 18 to 50 years and took place at the University of Washington Medical Center. Total 83 men completed full study.

The senior investigator of study, Stephanie Page said; to be effective, Dimethandrolone undecanoate must be taken with food. It causes mild increase in weight and decreases HDL cholesterol.

Currently commonly used methods for male contraception are:

  • Condoms– It is a barrier form of contraception .It prevents sperm from entering vagina and thereby preventing fertilisation of eggs. It also offers protection against sexually transmitted infections.
  • Vasectomy– During ejaculation sperm travel through the vas deferens to the penis .A vasectomy is a surgical procedure in which  vas deferens is cut and is usually is done under local anesthesia. Though vasectomy is usually considered as permanent procedure; it can be reversed with varying results depending on the post procedure duration.
