Mexico City.- There are more than now twenty methods of contraceptionbut only two are intended for the male reproductive organ: condoms and vasectomy. This can eventually change in the coming years along with marketing in pharmacies Pill for men DMAU, or Dimasrolone undecanoatethat would block sperm production, and therefore also prevent pregnancy.
Two scientists from University of WolverhamptonIn Great Britain, the results of a study were published in 2016, which showed the possibility of controlling the movement of the semen, as well as its fertility. However, in the same year the examination of the first male contraceptive pill was interrupted by possession side effects Like acne or mood swings, all of them also associated with a pill for women.
But now, the new DMAU pill can be a revolution in birth control methods. The most prevalent nowadays, in addition to the male condom, are those that a woman must take: an intrauterine device, a vaginal ring, hormonal patches, female condoms and, of course, combined oral pills. The men's version It would take social pressure on women if they were responsible for family planning.
DMAU tests were run very positive results, with a few contraindications that do not differ too much from the side effects of some of the female methods of contraception. The men who offered to undergo the test gained weight and their HDA cholesterol level decreased. However, they did not affect other important organs, such as the liver or kidneys.
Before it reaches, science has also tried other methods of contraception for men who have achieved more or less success. Testosterone injections will not only increase muscle mass, but also prevent pregnancy in women. Another alternative may be a local gel that will stop sperm production for some time while the gold implant will kill them.
A unisex pill has even been developed. But this is not the strangest thing, but the fact that it would be made of a component found in fruits such as mango, olives or grapes called lupeol. In any case, it seems that scientific progress is proceeding at the same pace as society, towards an egalitarian world between men and women. Contraception should not be exclusively feminine.
