The contraceptive pill for men has been successfully tested in clinical trials

Developed by scientists at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute and the University of Washington, the male contraceptive pill passed the first tests on humans. How does the male pill work?

If everything goes according to plan, it will be a real breakthrough in male contraception, which until now has been limited either to the use of condoms or to perform a permanent (and quite painful) vasectomy procedure. Hormonal pills according to the assurances of their creators are both very effective and ... more convenient to use.

How does the male contraceptive pill work?

The pill known as 11-beta-MNTDC contains two key components in the form of modified hormones: androgens and progesterone. The role of androgens is to prevent the decreases in testosterone levels that would otherwise occur when taking a tablet. Progesterone, in turn, blocks the hormones LG and FSH, which are responsible for the natural production of testosterone and sperm.

Our product works in two ways: it reduces the production of sperm while maintaining libido - explains Dr. Christina Wang, one of the creators of the miraculous pill.

11-beta-MNTDC was tested for 28 days on a group of 40 volunteers . The testers were divided into two groups: 30 of them were taking tablets with different concentrations of the active substance: 14 took a dose of 200 mg, 16 - 400 mg. The remaining 10 people took a tablet-placebo. After one month of taking pills, the expected decrease in semen production occurred in men taking 11-beta-MNTDC. Success. Although it was not without side effects. Several volunteers have experienced symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, decreased sex drive, several cases of acne and two cases of erectile dysfunction.

The first tests ended. What's next?

This is, of course, only the beginning of research. The positive result of the first study on humans is undoubtedly the success of Dr. Wang's team, but it is the very beginning of the road. The next step will be long-term tests on a larger number of people. Researchers must investigate whether, after prolonged use of 11-beta-MNTDC, users have no more serious side effects.

Related to such a long-term change in the user's endocrine management. How long will it take to return to the natural level of testosterone and semen production? This is not yet known. If everything goes according to plan, the measure will go to pharmacies in about 10 years. This is more or less the standard time since the invention of the new drug, to be put on sale.

Hormonal pills are not the only new idea for contraception for men

Another idea for male contraception is ... hormone gel. It is enough to rub it into the arms and forearms daily, so that the active ingredients contained in it (the composition is very similar to the pills described above) have reduced the production of sperm.

In addition to the gel, the researchers also test patches working on the same principle. Both products are currently being tested voluntarily in the United States (including Seattle, Kansas and California). The next step will be testing on other continents. If Europe is concerned, the gel will definitely go to volunteers from Sweden and Great Britain.

In publications related to clinical trials of these products, the most important issues are still missing. The percentage effectiveness of these specifics. It is probably quite likely that someone who takes contraception does this because he is not ready to beget offspring.

Protecting yourself from this scenario, no one would rather want to rely on the middle, whose effectiveness is less than 90 percent. Therefore, before we start to get excited about the new possibilities, I suggest to wait for full research results. And be patient. Hormonal contraception for men is a song about a decade away.
